I knew the lunch meat had salt in it, so I didn't add any more salt until I tasted the mix later.
The meat was on sale. I cooked out the fat, added the chopped bell peppers, and scraped the bottom of the pan for the goodies.
I knew that the tomatoes and squash contained a lot of water, so I made use of that water. I didn't add any more until I was near ready to add the pasta (a grain item, btw).
I added some oregano and basil leaves to the mix.
So, on Monday I can top some of the mix with a slice of cheese.
On Tuesday, I can add some hot sauce.
On Wednesday, I can add some cooked rice.
On Thursday (with what little might be left), I can add some canned beans (kidney, pork-n-beans, pintos, etc).
