Take-out Tuesday, Handy Staples Recipes

 

Take it easy this summer, and save some trips to the store with these recipes from the handy staples list

When I made this list several weeks ago,  I didn’t realize how very handy it would be!

 

staples list for pantry

 

Today I’m sharing  links to all the Painted Apron recipes you can make with the things on this handy list

You can print the list here

Note: this list does not include the basic baking staples, condiments, spices and seasonings, that are found in most kitchens

I keep romaine hearts on hand so everything can be either made into a salad, or can be put on top of a salad or some salad can be a topper.  This way if you don’t have any other fresh veggies, you can still balance your dish

I also try to keep crackers, chips, pasta on hand for easy appetizers and quick meals

  2. Wow, Jenna! You are so organized and such a fabulous cook. I’m intrigued by many of your recipes. Microwave potato chips sound great. I’m passing your recipe onto my daughter and DIL. They both have mandolins and love chips.
    I could stay on your post for a long time with so many good recipes today.
