Pantry Staples for Winter
We had a super, surprising, winter storm this week. We all knew it was coming but I was still amazed at how many people were freaking out grabbing everything in sight at the grocery store. My first thought was, "Do they not keep food in their house?" Or, maybe they just don't plan ahead. When seasons change, so do my shopping habits.
With winter I make sure I have plenty of stock, broth, canned tomatoes and beans to make soup, stews and one pot meals
Pasta, all shapes and sizes
Meat, chicken breasts, ground beef/pork, sausage, a few roasts in the freezer (even if you don't like to freeze meat, it is a lifesaver if you can't leave the house for days)
Cheese of all kinds
Crackers, nuts, chips
Vegetables, fresh, frozen
Milk, fresh, evaporated, coconut boxed/canned
Fruit canned or fresh
And, of course, sugar, flour, eggs, chocolate to make sweets. What's more fun than baking on a snow day?
