Culinary Challenge: My fridge died. What should I eat at home?

Chow Friends - I'm new to the boards but eager to share my culinary challenge.

My fridge died and I'm resorting to making my meals on a same-day / no leftovers / no refrigerated foods basis (i.e. no eggs, yogurts, cheeses). Life will be like this for at least another 3 - 4 weeks (it's a warranty issue).

I live in NYC, so I'm fine with walking to the market each morning to pick up canned foods, a few fresh items that won't spoil, and fresh breads. I've had more garbanzo and refried beans that I can stand, so I'm hoping you all can suggest quick and easy (and cheap) recipe suggestions.

Just FYI, I don't eat meat or chicken but I enjoy fish (although canned tuna is out, as I am over my limit). And I generally try to stay on the healthier side. Anyways, this has been quite a challenge these last weeks. I can use your suggestions!

Thanks!
