It never fails that at some point during the month, I am trying my hardest to avoid the store and use up what I have in the pantry. Many times these days fall on months when there is an extra week or trying to stretch that dollar until the next payday. It may even be times when I forgot something at the store and just do not want to go back, so I am utilizing what I have instead.
Every now and then, I’ll have a mental block…what can I make with these random items in my pantry and freezer? I usually start brainstorming when this happens or I just go through my recipe index and look at what I have made in the past during these times. Today, I’m going to lay it all out there for you with some of the meals I have made on those pantry cooking days.
Almost all of these are meals that I made quickly from the pantry, what are some of your go to recipes when cooking from the pantry?
