When it comes to food where do you start when getting a fresh start in your kitchen? It can be so overwhelming to start from scratch but don’t worry I have some great tips. Over the years I have moved a lot and when you move long distance you rarely can keep anything from your food.
1. Make a list of all the items you use on a regular basis.
2. Review my list of pantry and fridge essentials.
3. Review your favorite recipes to help you think of items you may forget.
4. Know that you won’t get everything on the first trip.
Over the years one of the best things I have done is built a well stocked pantry and fridge. It was really tough the first few weeks after the fire thinking about all of the food that was lost. As time has gone by I am trying to look at it as a blessing in disguise. Now I get to buy new ingredients and try more new things! Yes, a lot of time I go to reach for a spice and oil and realize I haven’t replaced it yet, but we are slowly rebuilding our pantry stock and soon it will be full. What’s the most important thing in your pantry?
