Help. I'm home alone with no dinner!!

Hello. I am new to these forums. I am 16 years old and I have been given the house for the weekend. I do not want to simply heat up a frozen dinner, as that would be cliche. I am looking for a simple, but appetizing meal. Do any of you crafty chef's have any ideas? Thank you very much.

First thing I have to ask is- what is in the cupboards and freezer. And what are you allowed, meaning that your parents would not mind you eating. BTW, Welcome!!!!!

Sounds to me like you got it goin' on, Gr...
You are the same age as my grandson, who lives with us because his parents have died. He can cook a little, but he would be heating up something frozen or making a sandwich.

Good for you!
We get by with a little help from our friends

Groceries, I'm proud of you. The only thing "wrong" with your meal (and it isn't very wrong) is that both peas and corn are starches. You need a salad or non-starchy veg of some kind. But you didn't give in and junk out, which most folk I know your age would, and eat something like microwaved nachos or call in a pizza. Good for you!!
