Question College Recipes I'm starving!

So I made the istake of leaving some ingredients in the general Fridge. I'm reduced to:

All purpose flour
Olive oil
Soy sauce
Butter (2 Sticks)
Heavy cream
A very Large bag of oatmeal
A Habenaero pepper marinade mix (must have been too spicy for them to eat)
Sugar

And various spices from Parsley to Dill and Cinnimon etc.

I need something to eat!

I was thinking of making dumplings but I lack the broth and/or animal fat

I didn't see baking powder listed but maybe you can get some...

You have NO other ingredients...??

Indian Fry Bread
Fry bread is a staple in the diet of most Indian tribes. Although the recipe may vary slightly among tribes, this particular recipe is from the Navajo Tribe. The bread is excellent for serving with stew, beans, honey, or any other food. Can also coat it with cinnamon and sugar mixture when taken out of the oil (takes like a churro!)

Ingredients
2 cups unsifted flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Pour ingredients into mixing bowl. Add warm water and stir until dough is consistency of bread. Let dough set for 30 minutes before rolling or patting out with hands.
Tear off balls of dough and roll or pat out with hand into pieces 6 to 8 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. If rolled out on board, dust lightly with flour or cornmeal. Punch a hole in the center of each piece to make it cook more evenly and not burst due to air bubbles.
Fry one piece at a time in hot oil (400 degrees and about 2 to 3 inches deep) until light brown on both sides. Drain on absorbent paper and serve,or
Sprinkle with sugar mixture for a dessert!

You could make a spicy porridge with the cream, oatmeal and pepper marinade mix.

I tend to burn through rice, and ramen in this place, I'd get like 3 packs before It's ripped to shreds, besides It's near a campus so like a single pack of ramen is like 50 cents. I have some beans, So I may make a soup of some sort with it, then maybe it'll last a while
