How well is your pantry and fridge stocked? Do you have enough basic ingredients to come up with a meal?
My daughter and I have fun with what we call “Pantry Mystery Meals”. We look in our pantries and come up with a meal using whatever we have on hand. Sometimes you have to get pretty creative, but it sure beats running to the store, using gas for an extra trip, buying something you probably shouldn’t be eating and then doing it over again the next day.
In order to play this game, you need to keep your pantry and fridge stocked with some simple, basic ingredients that can be used in a variety of ways.
Everyone’s list will vary, according to taste, but here is my “Staple Foods” list:
- Baking Powder
- Baking Soda
- Canned tomatoes
- Peanut Butter
- Chocolate Chips
With this list of ingredients, I can usually whip up any kind of meal, plus a dessert. I left out meats and veggies on purpose….that’s going to be another post. 😉
Hope you try the Pantry Mystery Meal game! Have fun!
