Yesterday I was gifted a box of various food staples since I'm on a tight budget. The only items I don't know what to do with are these canned goods.

- One 15 ozs. can of sweet potatoes, in syrup
- Four 14 ozs. cans of cranberry sauce* (Ocean Spray brand)
- Two 15 ozs. cans of cut green beans

(* I know cranberry sauce isn't a vegetable, but I wanted a sgirt subject line.)

Any healthy entree ideas?

Considerations: I have a working stove, but my oven is currently out of order and will remain so for at least a few more months. Since I am on a tight food budget, I prefer main entree ideas (breakfast, lunch, or dinner). I do not normally make sweets, desserts, or appetizers so the sweet potatoes (in syrup) and the cranberry sauce has me stumped. I rarely buy green beans, preferring fresh or frozen as the last time I bought canned green beans decades ago, I found them too soft (but maybe there is a a stovetop casserole idea that might work? anyone?).

Thank you.
