I believe it’s vital to have a well stocked pantry. Ingredients you will find that you will use often in cooking. When you first buy them it can seem like you are spending a lot of money but in the long run it really does save you alot .Having ingredients like this kept stored mean that when you are doing your weekly planning of what to eat you have to buy a limited amount of ingredients.These are some things I always keep stocked in my pantry .
Garlic salt and Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper
Chili Powder and Cayenne Pepper
Vegetable oil and Olive oil
Nonstick cooking spray
Regular granulated sugar, Brown sugar and Confectioners sugar
Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Dried basil and Dried parsley flakes
Baking Powder and Baking Soda
Chicken stock or broth
Sriracha hot chili sauce
Seasoned bread crumbs
Any kind of rice and pasta
These are just a few things I find I commonly use in my recipes. Alot of the things listed above I can usually find at my local Walmart and if I can’t find it there I can locate them at my local grocery store.
