Put time into dinner now, and you can make it last forever -- or at least the whole week. Welcome to Halfway to Dinner, where we show you how to stretch your staples -- or your seasonal produce -- every which way.
This post is brought to you by our friends at Weight Watchers, who celebrate gathering together around the table to enjoy wholesome, beautiful food.
Seasonal fruits and vegetables are like your beautiful friends who stop by for the weekend, tear up your apartment, and drag you out to karaoke at 3 AM. Your go-to pantry items, on the other hand, are older and less glamorous, but they're reliable. When you're having a bad day and you want to wiggle into a pair of toe socks and watch television, you know who to call. (Hint: It's not Ghostbusters -- it's brown rice.)
Take a look in your pantry and see who's waiting at your beck and call to become a delicious dinner. Click through on each ingredient to find 5 dinner recipes that you can customize however you like.

A New Way to Dinner, co-authored by Food52's founders Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, is an indispensable playbook for stress-free meal-planning (hint: cook foundational dishes on the weekend and mix and match ‘em through the week).
