What is…

something that exhilarates and enervates, provides sustenance when full and frustration when empty? A pantry.

Check out Dee’s Essential Pantry, items plus recipes, free here for the asking. I worked hard getting it together for you, so please use it for you, your family and guests. No-one’s gotten above level One. I urge you to try the rest and you’ll be the envy of the neighborhood.

Now, if one is moving, as I’ve been known to do a few times in my life (stop laughing), she looks at those half-empty pasta boxes and tries to find out what to do with them. Oh, marinated peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, my own marinated Kalamata olives, Parmigiano Reggiano. Now there’s a dish for next week. No-boil lasagne noodles. Buy some Ricotta and we have lasagne.

I’m taking the high road and am starting at the freezer. I decided to throw a Trifle Party for several friends who love my trifle. I’ll change it up a bit but similar flavors. Also on board will be my chicken liver and apple pate, and a couple of pizzas, from scratch of course.

Live a little, learn a lot, don’t move as much. It’s always a balancing act. May as well cook the best stuff for friends and empty the pasta shelf later. Cheers! Dee
