Re: Budget101.com : Help…empty pantry!
It all depends on the things you like to eat. We love noodle type dishes so we
keep a lot of rice, and different types of noodles on ours, but my dad doesnt’
like noodles so it wouldn’t make since for my mom to stock hers with noodles. so
it just depends on your tastes.
Noodles are very cheap and you can add just
about anything to them to make an easy and inexpensive meal.
We keep a lot of Cream of mushroom soup on hand for easy gravy to add with meat
and rice. We use a lot of Cream Cheese so we like to stock up on that when we
get a chance. We use it for alfredo sauce.
We also use a lot of chicken breasts so we try to keep that on hand also.
Lemon-Mustard chicken is our favorite for that one. In fact we usually try to
make extra of this one and cut it up to add to our alfredo sauce for dinner the
My husband also loves to cook seafood so we try to keep that on hand just in
case he gets in the mood for that. Usually it is just various types of frozen
shrimp, fish, and muscles.
If new recipes is what you want, I’d check out http://www.kraftfoods.com that is where
i go to make out my grocery list for the week. I put in the stuff i know i want
to make on the days of the week and then I go through and put ingredients that I
have on hand into the search and the recipes pop up that have that ingredient in
them and that is what i use for the days that i want to try something different
or just don’t know what i want to make for that day.
