    Default Pantry food!

    So we have just moved interstate, and we have currently got no fridge. Waiting on one to be delivered hopefully next Friday (20/7). The sink is filled with ice (we have no container / esky) but its very small so pretty much we just have milk, yoghurt for ds, butter & cheese.

    Please help me out with some pantry food ideas! I'm sick of pasta, dh doesn't really like potatoes or rice. He will eat them but doesn't like to.

    Sooo any suggestions for snacks, lunches (for ds and also for hubby to take to work) and dinners would be much appreciated.

    Thanks :-)

    Do you like couscous? They have some great flavored instant ones - just add water and let it stand. You could eat it with a casserole or even just some tuna? Or make a salad with some fresh leaves, tomato, red onion and chickpeas.

    Tuna
    those little long life milk things like in hotel fridges, they don't need to be refrigerated.
    Wraps
    Tinned things eg. Pinapple, tomatoes.
    Up and go - they taste better from a fridge but still fine from the cupboard.
    Spreads
    You can keep butter in the cupboard and use that for cooking, it will be more spreadable like margarine.

    That's off the top of my head so hope some of them help you.

    Blue dragon - awesome list thank you

    I'm a bit worried about storing eggs & veg though - are they okay to store in the pantry for a couple of days (I'll make sure they're used up) or will they go bad?

    I can't think of anything that hasn't already been mentioned but just wanted to say that my local coles stores the eggs with the baking needs not in the fridge section, so I'm guessing its ok to leave them in the pantry till the used by date??

    Thanks Lollydolly. I checked an egg carton yesterday and it said to store in refrigerator... But farm fresh eggs don't usually get put in the fridge so im thinking they should be fine atleast for the couple of days that I'd have them out. Makes me think back to how lucky we are and different life is these days!!!

    Eggs are ok in the pantry and most vegies would last a few days out of the fridge.
    Can you fill a plastic container with ice and just buy cold supplies every few days ?
