Some of my pantry staples that can dig me out of a meal gone bad are cream of mushroom soup, tomato sauce, tomato paste with assorted spices in the cupboard. I also make sure I have rice and some kind of pasta on hand at all times.
It’s amazing how you can make a meat stretch when unexpected guests are over for dinner if you have these staples on hand.
Never worry about what's for dinner again. I've got you covered with the meal plans in the Once a Week Cooking Club. Cook once, eat all week.
