My friend recently moved into a new house. His move has me thinking about setting down roots, starting something permanent. It has me thinking of all the birthdays, anniversaries and births we will face during our lifetime. Understandably some of you reading this will run down to the local supermarket on the day, pick something up and put it on the plate for these occasions. Others will love to try and make something to try and please their guests. Doesn't matter which one you are I think every person should have some essentials in their pantry ready for that special day. Who knows you might just fancy trying your luck at making that birthday cake yourself this year.
Fortunately, there is no need to spend loads of money to keep your pantry up to date. Here are a few recommendations to get a good pantry started.
You don't need to be a huge foodie or a Michelin-starred chef to start your pantry. Go ahead, stock up! The best thing about the pantry is these things will last for months. With all these ingredients stocked up, it allows you to make homemade curries, pasta sauce, cakes and much more.
Hopfully you'll be cooking soon :)
