How to start your pantry build, without breaking your back or your wallet

Post  mumjej31 on Tue Apr 19, 2011 3:57 am

So looking at it, I notice that the pantry list I wrote up was huge !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't stress, noone expects you to go out and buy all of that in one hit. But there is a way that you can do that over time, and without breaking the budget in one fowl swoop.
Start like this:
First shop: Please if you can buy these items, btw.. Aldi is great for buying very cheap pasta, tinned tomatoes and tomato paste, in fact all of their staple items are very cheap in comparison to the other grocery chains. You know who they are!!
So to begin. You'll need
Flour (SR & Plain) you should also get wholemeal of both along with the refined or White flour
Tinned Tomatos x 4
Tomato soup x2
Frozen vegies
Canola Oil Spray
EV Olive oil
Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, onions, garlic, zucchini, carrots, Leek (at least one large or 2 small)
Spaghetti and Penne pasta.
Minced beef
A food magazine.. (while you're still in the shop, look through the magazine and find a likely recipe that you'd like to try, purchase all the ingredients the recipe requires. Be sure that when you're looking through the magazine that there are more than a few recipes that you'd like to try, as you'll use that magazine for a month at least. But for the first instance just buy ingredients for one, including spices, sauces and so on.)

Okay, so this list should set you up for a couple of days, you should have found at least one recipe in your new magazine that will help you start your pantry.

Thank you for your great ideas on pantry and staples. They are always handy, and are generally the base of any home cooked meal.

Some meal suggestions that may stem from you list would be fantastic.
