I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend! The weather didn't cooperate for my 3 day beach binge but that's ok. I had one great beach day and two lazy days of sleeping and going for long lunches with my sister. And so I am back to business. No more "it's summer" excuses :(
Since I barely cook in the summer, my pantry is seriously lacking some things. I need to stock up because with cooler weather coming, I need to be prepared to cook myself some warming foods.
What to stock your pantry with:
- grains (rice, quinoa, barley)
- raw nuts- all of them
- dried fruit
- Amy's organic soups (for those days when I'm just too damn busy)
- canned vegetables
- cooking oils (olive, coconut, almond)
- restock spice cabinet
- meat from the farm
With those things, I should be able to successfully make just about any variation of soup, stew, or sauce that I can think of. As much as I hate when the warm days disappear, I do look forward to the change of seasons.
What is your favorite cool weather meal?
