Trying to limit your contact with the general public during this pandemic? Here are some easy (ready in about 30 minutes or less!) pantry dinners made primarily with staples from most kitchen cupboards.
I get it, things are a little scary right now. I'm in an at-risk group myself. I've come to the realization that I'll have to celebrate my 40th birthday (which is later this month) sometime in the summer, which sucks, but it's for the greater good.
In the meantime, make the most of the family time, try not to drive each other too crazy, and limit your interactions with the general public to only those that are absolutely necessary. I know it can get boring eating the same old meal, day in and day out, so here are some some new options for easy pantry dinners to liven things up.
