Help me make some menu's

Ok so here's the main meat we have.

Country Fried Steak
Chicken Fingers
Breaded Chicken patties
Breaded Chicken pieces
Boneless, Skinless chicken breast
Turkey smoked sausage
Sausage Patties

I'm looking for some nice side dishes that don't take long to prepare and are healthy since most of the meat isn't. Here's what I already have and don't have any more money for groceries for two more weeks.

Rice - white, brown and jasmine
Pinto Beans
Instant Potatoes
Frozen potato wedges
Frozen Corn
Frozen Strawberries

I also have lots of spices, olive oil, etc...

Thanks in advance!

Looks like you can do pinto beans and rice as a side... I'd add some garlic and onion for flavor. Chicken fried rice with corn garlic and onion...add a scrambled egg or two. Baked potatoes as a side. You could make chili baked potatoes with the hamburger and beans. That's all I can think of off-hand for now. Maybe you can make a casserole with potato wedges on top (kinda like the tatertot casseroles).
