Pantry diving 101…another snowy Monday in the forecast. Whether it actually snows or not, I’m putting off the usual Monday grocery run. If it dumps 6 inches at rush hour as predicted…staying in is just a good idea. If it doesn’t, no point in going just because of the forecast…after hearing it, people will descend on the store like a plague of locusts and at the very least decimate all bread, milk, toilet paper and beer supplies.
Here in the Northeast it pays to keep a meal or two based on shelf (and freezer) friendly stuff in reserve for just such an occasion. One of our favorites (as you can tell from how often it shows up on the menu ideas) is “pasta faux-jule” A can of beans, a box of pasta, a frozen roll of sausage…tasty stuff that may well last until the next ice age. Or at least the next polar vortex. Or Tuesday.
What are your favorite pantry only meals?
Monday – Pasta Faux-jule
Tuesday – Kalua Pork and apple salad
Wednesday – Fried rice and easy velvet corn soup
Thursday – Chicken cutlets and herb roasted sweet potatoes
Friday – Chili noodle soup
