snowed-in cookery

OK, tomorrow I may well be snowed in. At our house we have had over two feet fall in the last 24 hours (unheard of in this town!) and it is still coming down. Besides, we live on a side street that will never be plowed (there was still snow on the road from last week's storm.....).....I'm just not sure I'm going to want to go to the store...and I know they won't get their deliveries anyway...

So, I am running out of fresh food, although I do have a fair number of apples and oranges left. There is no meat in my freezer. There is some halibut and salmon, but we had that last night. Any ideas??? I have eggs, sourdough and wheat bread, plenty of milk, lots of canned soups and the like, pasta, canned chili, some cheese.....

So what would you try and amuse the family with? Or should I just strap on my cross-country skis??? I'm thinking we have some dal, so there is always that....but would love to hear all of your favorite ideas of "cooking from the cabinets..."

(Tonight I used some leftover roast and the last of the fresh vegetables to make a beef/vegetable/rice soup). It was great with some of the sourdough and sliced oranges. I had all the ingredients for a pumpkin pie, so we'll be eating that for desert.
