Fall 2019 Kitchen Staples

Be Prepared With a Well Stocked Pantry and Fridge

Now that Fall has arrived it’s a great time to get back in the Kitchen and start making lots of great Stews, Soups and Casseroles. Surprisingly enough many of the Ingredients for your Fall Favorites are already at your fingertips, either in your Pantry or Fridge. The beauty of these items is that you can create a meal even without the benefit of a Protein or Fresh Vegetables. The below list are items I keep on hand and can’t live without!
