This week’s Thursday’s Tip is all about the items you need to keep your freezer, fridge and pantry well-stocked!
What do you like to keep on hand in your kitchen so you can have dinner on the table every night for your family? This week’s Thursday’s Tip is all about what I like to keep in our freezer, fridge and pantry so I can make my family’s favorite meals.
I may not keep my pantry as well-stocked as Martha Stewart, but there are a few items from my pantry list that I always have on hand. That way I can quickly put a meal together for my family. Life isn’t always perfect and right now I desperately need to get my kitchen stocked again! A trip to the grocery store is going to happen this weekend for me!

Corn Starch – use as a thickener for so many delicious recipes!
You may ask, “Why cake mixes?” Well, they’re great to have on hand to make a quick dessert. Especially if you have kids and you need to do a lot of baking for school bake sales or sports dinners. These Chocolate Chunk Muffins start out with a cake mix and are delicious!
Red Pepper Flakes
I love to store my spices in mason jars. Yes, I take them out of the original plastic containers and store them in mason jars. Mason jars keep the spices fresher and look prettier in the pantry. Here are my favorite jars to use:
Canned Tuna – my husband loves tuna for his lunches!
Salad Dressing (we always have Italian dressing on hand)
Pasta – all varieties!
Bread Crumbs – Panko too!
If you keep the above items on hand, you can always make this Corn Fiesta Salad. An easy side dish that your family will love. In the summer, you can substitute the canned corn for fresh corn.
