I have turkey, tomatoes, stock, onion and curry powder. Can I make a curry? I don't have almonds, yogurt, or other spices.
I'd skip the curry powder and just make soup. You have the ingredients for that.
Sounds to me that you have the ingredients for a nice curry sauce to put over turkey and noodles. Sounds yummy to me.
I am trying to have more creative ideas for my green veggies. I have a pretty good pantry.
I mix 1/2 avocado with 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese. Don't see why you can't throw some broccoli into the mix. I'm going to try it. I also like to sprinkle my avocado with a little fresh lemon juice.
What can I make with eggs, water, flour, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon?
Those are the standard ingredients for cakes, cookies, coffee cakes, and muffins.
If you have a little butter, oil or shortening you can make a cake. However you will need a little baking powder.
Feed these ingredients into the "recipe" on some websites and it will tell you what you can do with them. Cinnamon should make it taste good, whatever it is.
Add bread for french toast? muffins, crumb cake.

What can I make for dinner with ground beef, carrots, onions, tomato soup, Minute Rice, and sausage?
By nancy from Nova Scotia
I would mix all of it together in a big pot, add a little water and some seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc.), and make a soup/stew out of it. You could add the rice in with all of it, or you could leave the rice out, cook it separate and serve the stew over it. Hope this helps.
How about a meatloaf?
It sounds like you're in great shape! Here's a recipe I learned from my aunt in Idaho about 50 years ago, and I am still making it.
1 pound hamburger
2 cups thinly sliced carrots
1 cup thinly sliced onions
2 cups thinly sliced potatoes
1 can tomato soup
In a 2 quart baking dish, layer hamburger, carrots, onions, and potatoes. Mix tomato soup with 1 can water and pour over layers. Cover tightly and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1/5 hours.
You could also make a layer for the sausage, but it would be nice to save it for another dish later, too. I hope this helps! When you serve it, it looks pretty if you can keep the layers neatly in order, but hey, it will taste good even if your kids stir it up.
Go to this link and type in all of those ingredients and it will come up with loads of choices :-) There's a tutorial for first timers using the site to help you out, too ;-)
Let us know what you decided to make :-)

You can type the ingredients in at both of these sites and oodles of assorted recipes will show up on both. When you try the second link you have to scroll down just a bit to get to the ingredient function tab.

What can I make with frozen cheese ravioli, frozen chicken breast, and a jar of Alfredo sauce?
If you have or could get a small can of tomatoes, you will have a yummy meal. You slice chicken breast in half horizontally (fillet them). If you have on hand, bread crumbs then dip them in some water or egg and drag them thru it both sides coating them well. Bake on pan sprayed with cooking spray or a little oil to prevent sticking. Bake on one side for about 20 minutes turn them on the other side, add the can tomatoes drained of all juice, then a little alfredo sauce of the sauce to cover the tomato, bake for about 15 minutes til done. If you don't bread them then you can cut into small cubes about 1" and saute them in oil it lightly browned, then add can tomatoes, (drained of tomatoe juice first.) Heat sauce, cook ravioli according to directions. Viola, dinner is served! Hope this helps.
Here is a link to a site where you give them your ingredients and they'll find a recipe for you:
You could make it like lasagna, except cook the ravioli according to package and then boil your chicken in a little bit of water til done. Then layer the cheese ravioli on the bottom of the pan and put your cooked chicken(shredded) on top of the ravioli. Then pour the alfredo sauce on top of that. Put in the oven and bake til all is bubbly and heated thoroughly. Yum yum! That sounds so good. Wish that I had those ingredients right now. This is a good recipe for those that are on a restricted diet due to acid reflux and peptic ulcers and can't have fried foods or foods with tomatoes due to the acid content.
