Weekly Menu Plan, Grocery List and Recipes:Cooking From The Pantry

The menu for the week shares easily prepared recipes made directly from the pantry. We all have experienced when our pantry is overstocked or there is meat in the freezer that you need to defrost and cook. Many times I’ve been tempted to try new recipes and go out for new ingredients, but I’ve learned to manage the kitchen to shop and cook from my pantry to use those ingredients before they expire or go bad.

Cooking from the pantry is an excellent way to get meals on the table when time is short and you can’t get to the store, when dinner ideas have dwindled or if an unexpected supper has to be whipped together.

Cook From The Pantry


Cooking from the pantry, leads you to lots of home cooking and creativity. You also control how much you spend on groceries. An organized, well-stocked pantry  is the first step, but once that’s established, creative, delicious dinners are just minutes away.
