Meal Plan: Simple Recipes to Help You Cook from the Pantry

foodmeal plan

Rice, pasta, beans, sauces, ...When preparing meals on the fly, it is important to have a well-stocked pantry of general, non-perishable items. If you have a well-stocked pantry, you will find that you can prepare delicious meals without having to run to the store. Plus, a well-stocked pantry makes grocery shopping easier.

When menu planning or planning a meal, if you have a well-stocked pantry, all that you need to purchase are the perishable foods (dairy, meats, etc.). By having the non-perishable items already in your pantry, you can save money and time at the store. What's not to love about that? This menu plan is all about cooking and preparing meals form the pantry.
