Seven Pantry Friendly DinnersPosted: March 15, 2011
I feel a little bit like Bilbo Baggins when I say, “I’ve put this off for far too long.” Writing down a weeks worth of dinners, why is it so hard?
*Please note that I would normally add vegetables from the garden if possible and if I don’t have fresh garnishes it just won’t be as pretty.
Black Beans and Rice – Black beans, rice, and spices from closet pantry. Green peppers, mangoes, and jalapenos from the freezer.
Mulligatawny Soup – All ingredients from the closet pantry.
Bean and Rice Sloppy Joes – All ingredients from closet pantry, except green peppers from the freezer.
Chicken Tortilla Soup – All ingredients from the closet pantry.
Pasta with Roasted Red Peppers – All ingredients from the closet pantry.
Chicken Pot Pie – All ingredients from the closet pantry. (substitute baking powder biscuits for yogurt biscuits)
Bean and Rice Burritos – All ingredients from the closet pantry, except cheese from the freezer and whatever veggies you can find in the freezer or garden.
