    What a great idea. My list (and I appreciate that I don't know the young chap concerned) would be something like:

    Dried onions
    Instant mashed potato
    Tinned corned beef
    Baked beans with sausages (or with veggie sausages)
    Tinned peas
    Packets of Bean Feast (1 x mince & onion, 1 x chilli, 1 x bolognese)
    Long grain rice
    Tinned frankfurters
    Tinned mushrooms
    Tinned tomatoes

    Okay that's 12 things but I reckon there are at least a week's meals in there!
    :D I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe :D

  • i just cant live without sweetcorn - tinned maybe but I prefer frozen. You can add it to so much!

    I suppose you could use peas instead.

    Ooh I can't eat tinned. There was a story in the local paper where they found a stange looking bug once. :o Photo and everything. Put me right off. Frozen is so much better.

    I can only add to this by suggesting the versatility of the humble baked bean (and I have to go with quality on baked beans - Heinz only for me)

    Baked Bean omelette

    Baked Bean toasted sandwich

    Baked Beans and Pasta/Spagetti

    Baked Beans with Cheese on Toast

    Baked Beans and Mashed Potato

    Wish I'd thought of that yesterday Sheel. Made a chilli to go in the slow cooker not realising that I hadn't got any kidney beans :-[ so I rushed to the shop to buy some. I'd got loads of tins of beans in though.
    I bet it's nicer too cause, although I eat kidney beans I don't really like them ;D
    When life hands you a lemon, make sure you ask for tequilla and salt ;)
