Cooking from a very modest supermarket: Inspire me!

Amy Mintzer | Jul 28, 2011 08:43 PM

Our vacation will take us to a rented house in a rural area with a small and not fancy supermarket as the only food shopping. (There is a farmers market, but it won't have much beyond corn and tomatoes, maybe zucchini or cukes.)

On past trips, we've cheerfully subsisted on Cheerios, tuna sandwiches, grilled cheese... But this time we're going for 2 weeks, which makes me want to think a little harder about the pleasures of the table, and I know there are things to cook and eat that I'm just not considering.

What are your favorite things to make using very basic ingredients? (I don't happen to like omelettes, but omelettes are the kind of thing I have in mind.)

Inspire me!
