I discovered that a can of garbanzo beans, some canned tomatoes, onions, and chicken broth can make a decent supper in the Instant Pot

I also slice and dice veggies and leftover meat for stir fries.

I do like breakfast for dinner, too.

We have chickens, so no matter what, there are always eggs.

I used to have 6 laying hens, 3 Leghorns and 3 Rhode Island Reds..so we always had eggs.

after they stopped laying, we had Chicken .

Old chickens are tough, but they still taste like chicken.

We have six hens (ours are Orpingtons and Ameraucanas). It's the upper limit of our municipal ordinance for backyard chickens. I grew up on a farm, and am used to larger flocks, but it is a good number for the suburbs.

That's what slow-cookers are for. They'll tenderize the meat quite nicely, as well as infuse it with any flavors you add.

A cast iron dutch oven is pretty time tested for stewing hens.

Honestly, I doubt we'll process ours when they're done producing. As a farm kid, I have a particular mentality about livestock, and the circle of life, but my suburban small children don't have that same cultural background, and the girls are as much their pets as anything.

Bread sandwich. 2 pieces of toasted bread then a regular piece of soft bread in the middle. It tastes filling! Believe it or not

Ramen noodles with hot sauce packets or ketchup

I keep honey packets and ranch dip from fast food places just to snack on

Something with eggs, peppers, beans. Or tuna melts.

Can't rep you again, but...

Once, I was a kid stuck in the house with two slimy hot dogs and nothing else.

Once, maybe twice, we (as adults) were stuck due to illness in the house with nothing, not even slimy hot dogs. Before the days of Amazon, or even Dominos.

Lesson learned. Pantry never again empty.

Another idea for a desperation dinner is to rip off prison recipes, easily found online. They're made with cheap (by that, I mean found at Dollar Tree), shelf-stable ingredients. Except that you can use an actual stove, rather than MacGyvering an immersion heater out of a stripped power cord and paper clips. Or just microwaving it.

For example,: spread, brownies, burritos, cookies, etc. Just google the word "prison" followed by what you wish to make.
