When it comes to kitchen staples, there are some products that I like to always keep on hand. Having what I need to make delicious, made-from-scratch meals makes a big difference in both our health and our budget!
OK, this may seem like a no-brainer. But, seriously, unless you are a vegetarian family, it’s very difficult to make dinner without some type of meat on hand! My husband is a huge meat-and-potatoes man, so this is a must-have at our house!
It is very hard to make baked goods without some kind of milk. And cheese…well, cheese makes just about any meal better! Although my family is mostly dairy-free right now, when we are eating dairy, plenty of cheese is an absolute staple!
Most Americans do not eat enough fruits and vegetables. I have been trying to make a point to keep more in my fridge, so we have no excuse not to eat plenty of fresh produce! And, of course, every meal with a meat base needs some yummy veggie sides!
OK, well this is solely for Mama in this house (hubby is a sweet tea drinker himself!), but having coffee on hand is a MUST-HAVE at our house! I only drink one cup per day, but without that cup…well, you may want to keep your distance. 😉
