Well Stocked Pantry
I remember when I first ventured out on my own. There were so many things to buy, including groceries to stock the pantry. I wanted it all but was, of course, on a very tight budget. I had to get the most basic of items and gradually stock the others. Well, that was a long time ago. My opinion on what is essential has changed and the pantry is a lot bigger than it used to be. It is important to have food items in storage especially for spontaneous, quick, easy, healthy and creative cooking. There are items that are basic to almost any cooking. Other items are dependent on the type of cooking you do most often and the amount of storage space available.

In this group you can share quick and easy recipes that will get any meal on the table for your family.
