Dumb questions for ladies who have lady skills

Troy just left with the boys for a trip to buy cement down the road. This allows me five minutes to check in. I have been preparing since 6am, I am almost ready for these guy to show up at noon.

Okay ... I have my menus planned, but now that there are three more people coming late in the week - staying extra then my original plan allowed for, I need to come up with one or two other idea. My five nights are: 1. Shephards Pie 2. Taco's 3. Haitian Meal cooked by Mme. Maxo 4.Lasagna 5.Meat Loaf and Potatoes and Veggies.

Breakfast and Lunch don't scare me.

Yogi C. and Erik V. Where is the love? You guys are my two professionals and I wait anxiously (and not very patiently) for your ideas.

You saw in my kitchen photo that the kitchen is HUGE and has a ton of cabinet space. I finally went through all the cabinets and found a few items that I don't know how to use. I am sure there is some obvious answer. Here are my dumb questions.

What would you use Campbell's Beef Consomm'e (gelatin added) Soup for? The recepies on the can all require beef --- which I have not found yet --- so what do you think the previous people used it for? Why do I have 10 cans of it? (I have only found good ground beef, no roasts or other types of beef look very edible.) Also, I have massive amounts of plain bread crumbs, my meatloaf does not use breadcrumbs so what could I use these for? Mme Maxo is doing goat with what she prepares so I need to find a chicken thing to throw in the mix.

I like kids and running and sports. I am good at some mom things like cleaning and laundry and organizing. Cooking and gardening are not my things. Can you tell I am feeling panicky? I can do it, I can do it, I can do it.

We need a pizza place in LaDigue.
