We have a fair amount of food on hand, since I was sort of halted with no oven. First, a list of what I already have here.

-2 pie pumpkins
-3 acorn squash
-assortment of dried beans
-baking stuff: baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, flour, sugar etc.
-1 lb ground beef
-1 lb stew beef
-1 lb fajita meat
-strawberry jam
-2 leeks
-red lentils
-french lentils
-cheddar cheese
-2 chocolate bars
-mixed roasted nuts
-frozen peas
-frozen spinach (I think?)
-olive oil
-balsamic vinegar
-half dozen homemade bean burritos in freezer
-leftover cream of celery soup

My plan for a lot of that is done:

-pumpkin coconut soup MMMM
-Moroccan red lentil soup
-stuffed acorn squash (with quinoa)
-oatmeal raisin cookies
-pumpkin bread YUM, need to make applesauce
-banana bread
-pumpkin cookies
-eggs and toast
-pan fried chicken strips and garlic rosemary potatoes with creamed spinach


-bread (from that awesome bakery)
-some kind of oil? or just use cocounut?
-parmesan cheese
-more spinach
-fruits and vegetables for snacking on
