For breakfast, these ingredients line up to make an egg biscuit.  Lunch is a classic, with a ham and cheese sandwich with bean soup.  Then for dinner you’ll be roasting a chicken and eating it with rice.   Don’t forget that you have some fruit you bought.  If your kids won’t eat bean soup, or can’t re-heat it for lunch, then use the fruit.

This should be nearing the end of your potatoes.  If you’re actually out of potatoes, substitute a cup of rice.  You have plenty of rice and it’s even cheaper than potatoes while having roughly the same nutritional value.
