More Fun Stuff: Cantry Thursdays
By mid to late week, my family has eaten most of the groceries and I’m running out of dinner ideas. It’s super tempting to go out to eat, and that gets expensive really fast – especially if you have a big family like me. A better solution is to find easy dinner recipes to make using items in my Cantry. Cantry Thursdays are a reminder that I can use canned foods to help me put a nutritious, homemade meal on the table.
My usual way of using canned foods is just opening up canned veggies and heating them up as a side dish. I love that Cans Get You Cooking shows me (and everyone else) how to go beyond that and use cans to make creative meals. Canned foods have a lot more potential that I realized! I’m finding recipes for breakfast, appetizers, dinner and desserts that can all be made using cans.
Canned foods like fresh fruits and vegetables that have been harvested at their peak of ripeness and canned within hours. Cans are an affordable way for me to serve fruits and vegetables year round. The canning process has long been one of the best ways to lock in nutrients and get food from its source to the table.
