I also have ground beef, canned diced tomatoes, rice, etc.

Does anyone have an idea for me?
YUM! Avocados!

How about a big juicy burger topped w avocado, melted cheese, tomatoes (& bacon, if you have some). You could drain the tomaters and incorporate them into the burger mix (w onions & crushed corn chips).

Or avocado fries - dipped in (beer) batter.

One of my fave avocado sites:

California Avocado Commission

I forgot one - Bumped into these yummy-looking potato pancakes (if you have some taters), w avos, tomatoes, etc.

That burger sounds wonderful! Unfortunately, I only have canned tomatoes, but it's definitely on my to do list!

Thank all of you for your suggestions. Kim ended up freezing the burger and cooking steak last night, since it was my birthday. Unfortunately, through no fault of his, the steak was tough.
Tonight, he's going to chop up what's left, and I may end up turning it into taco pie...you know, the one with the crescent roll crust and the crushed corn chips.
I'll serve it with sliced avocado, and jarred salsa.

We get by with a little help from our friends

4 for one dollar? WOW.

I mash ripe avocado and spread on my toast as breakfast.
Look around us, it is beautiful.
