Dry Goods for the Pantry
Every kitchen pantry should be well stocked with dry goods. Dry goods are foods that aren’t refrigerated or frozen. Stock your pantry with these staples and packaged foods — they can last for a substantial time. You probably consume several of these foods at least once a week, so stock up on them, and you’ll have dry goods ready when you need them.
Assorted breads, English muffins
Breadcrumbs, dried stuffing mixes
Cake mix, biscuit or pancake mix
Cold and hot cereals
Cookies and crackers
Dry beans and grains
Dry noodle mixes for the skillet
Herbal and regular teas
Macaroni and other pasta
Powdered drink mixes (hot and cold)
White and brown rice, wild rice
Keep all of your dry goods well-sealed in zip-up storage bags and clear plastic canisters with tight lids. Not only will this keep in the freshness, you’ll keep out little creatures (that are not your kids).
