The Well Stocked Pantry List

star pooley


With a well stocked pantry you can quickly prepare a meal. Start with the basics and build on that. I store my dried herbs, spices and staples in Mason Jars. Mason Jars are relatively cheap and I can see what is in the jar. I label each jar with the date I placed the item in the jar. I buy in small amounts so things stay fresher.
