stretching food money

I'm house-sitting until the 27th. The truth is this place has tons of food. Especially in the deep freeze. But I want to give myself an interesting challenge. I've had to stretch food money before but while I'm working on this I felt like you guys probably would have some good suggestions.
I have a $50 gift card for kroger. I want to use it in one fell swoop and that food be enough to last me until the 27th. If you're wondering what I have at my disposal I have more seasonings than I know what to do with, flour, tons of canned/frozen vegetables, and lots of chicken/beef stock.
I clipped a couple coupons but there wasn't much in my sunday paper. Kroger's adverts that I think are useful are pasta and canned crushed tomatoes 10/10. Chicken breast $2/lb and 2/$5 breakfast sausage. Not a whole lot. A lot of their stuff that is advertised on sale is frozen food like hungry-mans and shit. That stuff is dog food for humans and I don't eat it so that's out. I cook 90% of my food so I'd like real suggestions.
