Anything you randomly threw together that tasted OK

Today I had no idea what to make for dinner so I made a sort of casserole with chicken, lentils, small tomatoes and a tomato and celery sauce I'd made a few weeks ago and frozen. It tastes alright.

Maybe adding bacon would help it along a bit though.

What have you made with random foodstuffs?
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    Several years ago, using the only savory items I had on hand, I sautéed a can of tuna and a bunch of spinach in garlic and olive oil. Added a bit of salt and served it over pasta. I have refined it a bit over the years (I use 2 cans of oil packed Italian tuna and have found that whole wheat linguine stands up well to the flavors. I also serve Parmesan cheese on the side for the kids and red pepper flakes for me), but it is now a weeknight staple at our house.

    Many years ago, when the cupboard was almost bare and the pocketbook even barer, I put a couple cans of stewed sliced tomatoes into a pot and added fresh catfish (I think chunks, or else I cut it into pieces). I'm sure I added other spices/herbs as well. Served over rice after the fish 'stewed' for a while. WOW was that good!

    This became a staple (with variations depending on whatever I had in the house - I specifically recall include adding sliced black and/or green olives, capers, sauteed onions, black beans... I'm sure I tried baby clams as well. It was always good!)

    It'd be good over pasta, too, but there's something about tomatoes and rice that is very appealing to me.

    A few months ago, I woke up hungry (a rarity for me) and decided to cook breakfast. I had frozen precooked potatoes, some breakfast sausage, milk, flour, some onion, and cheese. I turned it into a really good breakfast casserole. :D Now I make it all the time, and I've added cheese, red pepper flakes, or had it with eggs or biscuits. It's one of my family's favorite meals.
