In the fridge I have:
asparagus, onions (spanish and spring), broccoli, one giant mushroom, celery that's looking a bit tired, a jar of pesto, a few sausages and a couple of potatoes, lettuce, cooked meats, tuna, milk, cheese spread.
Freezer - salmon, cod, burgers.
Cupboard - canned tomatoes, baked beans, various herbs and seasonings/stock, rice, pasta, lentils.

Any fantastic meal ideas? It's for 2 adults, 3 kids. DH won't eat fish so that needs to be kept separate from everything else!

How about risotto using the asparagus, onion, broccoli, mushroom and celery + actual cheese if you have any or, if not, some stock and/or wine.

Minestrone or curry.

Break up the burgers for mince and make bolognaise / chilli con carne (wash the tomato sauce off tge beans and add at the end)
Tuna pasta
Sausage pasta / toad in the hole
What sort of lentils? Will your kids eat dahl? Or lentil soup?
You can make meatballs by de-skinning sausages and mixing with some burger meat and have with tomato sauce and pasta.
Mushroom, veg bits in a vegetable pilaf rice type thing. You could serve it with fish on the side.
Toasted sandwiches with the cooked meat and cheese spread croque Monsieur style.
If there's spare burger meat make a big pan of stew - celery, mince, potatoes, stock any spare veg.
How many meals do you need?
