I cannot stress enough how important a well-stocked pantry is when it comes to throwing together a quick meal. Case in point- red lentils, rice, coconut milk and the right spices all blended together to create a beautiful, nutritious curry! Dried pasta, olive oil, anchovy, chili flake, and a little lemon juice might be one of my favorite dinners ever! These meals are perfect for when you get home after work and the fridge is empty. Please don’t waste your hard earned money on Postmates.
Speaking of hard earned money, one more tip before I get into my top ten: keep an eye on these ingredients at the supermarket. A lot of my favorite pasta goes on sale for $1-2/box when I see that’s the case I stock up, same with canned tomatoes and almost everything else. Save money on the basics and splurge the fun stuff!
