My cupboards are getting bare but I'm trying to put off shopping for as long as possible. Can anyone inspire me with some lovely recipe or two that can be made with my fridge/cupboard leftovers:

a bit of bacon
loads of eggs
lettuce & cucumber
few carrots, one leek, bunch of asparagus
a bit of cheese
one onion
four decent sized potatoes
pasta & spaghetti
various herbs & spices
a few 'usual' tins like kidney beans, baked beans, chicken soup, chopped toms

Any ideas please?

I'm thinking frittata with salad, pasta with tomato sauce

omelette with bacon chees and onion?

jacket potatoes, halved, the insides mixed with chees and bacon and then grilled?

Yum, sounds nice thanks, might be able to stretch to more than a couple of dinners at this rate

You have saved DD & DP from a week of pasta smile

Was going to say frittata too. Bacon, onion, cheese, cooked, cubed potato and eggs.
Chicken noodle (broken spaghetti) soup with a beaten egg through it.
mix beans together and have with baked potatoes and grated cheese on top.
