This past week this is how I have used several jars of items I canned; made taco soup using corn, black beans, chili beans and tomatoes. Had potato soup using the potato soup mix I made and added a can of evaporated milk. Beef roast and used a jar of potatoes; ham and beans and made some corn bread to go with it; bacon, fried potatoes and eggs using canned bacon and canned potatoes. Chicken noodle soup using canned chicken broth, a pot of chili made with chili beans, tomatoes and tomato juice. Tonight we are having meat loaf made with ground turkey, calico lima beans and squash. Several nights a week I eat beets and pickled carrots that I canned and will open peaches for a snack. Several of these meals also contained dehydrated items and a couple were made using convenience mixes that I have made up. So use the stuff you can, dehydrate, mix up or freeze; don't let it go to waste.
