cleaning out my cupboards :)

Alrighty, I decided to go through my cupboards and use out anything that had been there for a while. Here's what's on the "use soon" list:

canned baked beans,
canned green/wax beans,
canned mushrooms
canned coconut milk,
dried split peas

Do you have recipes that involve any of those that are family favorites? I guess the beans I can just use as a veggie, lol. But for the rest of the list?? I need some yummy new recipes!!

Re: cleaning out my cupboards :)

canned baked beans - As is, or toss with cut up hotdog. I'm not sure, I dont really like baked beans but DH and DD LOVE them just warmed up out of the can.

canned green/wax beans - I'm not sure about this one, maybe a green bean casserole?

canned mushrooms - Saute up and toss with spaghetti sauce

canned coconut milk - A nice Thai curry with chicken, red/green peppers, onions, serve over rice. I think what I am thinking of is Panang Curry (it has a coconut/peanut sauce)

dried split peas - Pea soup!

Hope that helps! I should go through my cupboards too...

subbing because I have a bunch of canned green beans that I don't know what to do with (DH bought them and I've NEVER used caned green beans before ) as for the canned mushrooms we just add those into ground beef and veggies or meat we are using for pasta sauce etc.
