We have NO food in the house. Okay, maybe a little bit, but not really enough to make something substantial (no milk, eggs, butter, cheese, tortillas, meat, etc). I so don't feel well enough to go shopping, and poor Jeremy worked an overnight, so he is sleeping. He said he'll shop when he wakes up. :-)
But that still left me with... what do I eat today besides peanut butter toast?! This is where I get creative. I made a stew! It took me like 5-10 minutes, and it's SOOO yummy. I thought I'd share the recipe, just in case you want to make it too. :-)
I'm calling it...
1 can stewed tomatoes (Italian recipe) *This was found in pantry.
1 can tomato paste *Also found in pantry! (I'm so glad I decided to buy these two to save for a rainy day!)
1/2 can leftover black beans in fridge
1/2 can leftover refried beans in fridge
Rotisserie chicken pieces (okay, I literally, scraped the bones for all the meat I could find!)
Almost-empty bag of frozen corn
2 cups water
2 tsp chicken base
I threw all this (at the same time) into a pot and simmered on medium until hot. That was it. LOL. I didn't even have to add seasoning or salt because of the stewed tomatoes and chicken base! It is super delicious. :-D
I'm sure it would be much better with full cans of beans and more corn and chicken, so feel free to do that if you make your own. But if you have this stuff on hand, and you're at a loss... you won't go hungry. ;-)

p.s. I started an organization blog! :-) I'll give it a facelift soon, but it's the content that counts, right?! ;-)
