What can I make with *this* nearly bare cupboard?

MaggieRSN | Dec 1, 2007 06:42 AM

I really don't feel like shopping today and hope to put it off to tomorrow afternoon or Monday.

So I need to come up with something for dinner.

The few things I do have on hand: bacon (slab--peppered), tomatoes, various varieties of onion, carrots, spinach, linguine, lasagna, rice, various legumes (I *think* dried chickpeas, lentils, Navy beans), potatoes, about a cup of cream. Oh, and I almost forgot, lots of turkey stock in the freezer!

I know I could make some kind of tomato cream sauce with bacon and serve with pasta.

Other inspirations?

I have plenty of condiments and pretty much every herb and spice under the sun. But if you have any ideas for putting the substance together, I'd appreciate it. I'm kind of sick of tomato sauces, right now.
