​Stocking Your Pantry for Winter

Posted by

Rabbit Creek Products

Picture yourself cozied up at home on a blustery winter’s day. The snow is falling outside and the fire is roaring inside. You have the comfy socks and thick blanket. You might be holed up in the house for a few days with the blizzard coming through. Now, picture yourself opening the pantry to find bare shelves. Blizzards are the perfect time for warm stews and hearty slow cooker dishes, they are not the best time for finding empty cupboards!

If your pantry is stocked at the beginning of the year, you’ll be prepared for a hot meal when the blizzard strikes. This January, we’re focusing on the best ingredients to fill your pantry.

Fill Your Pantry

Bread

Bread is the first staple that disappears from the grocery shelves during a winter storm. Make sure you don’t run low on your bread supply by picking up a few packages of our bread mixes. Our fun flavors will keep your winter more interesting than a loaf of plain white bread. Our cheesy garlic beer bread is a great side for soup, while our Italian herb bread is perfect for toast.

Pancakes

Pancake breakfasts are made for wintry mornings. When the craving hits, make sure you have buttermilk pancake mix on hand. Keep syrup in the pantry as well.

Nonperishable snacks

I like to snack during the long, cold wintry days. Granola, trail mix and popcorn are good options. Seed crunch is a healthy and unique snack. Pretzels, wheat crackers and salami or summer sausage are just right when you need something salty.

Slow cooker meals

There is nothing better than coming home after a long day and finding dinner waiting for you. Soup is one of the easiest and most comforting meals you can prep for yourself, your friends or family. We have a range of flavors and cuisines, including Kickin’ Chicken Enchilada and Italian Vegetable Beef Barley Soup.

Sweet Treats

Just because you’re hibernating for the season doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve a little dessert on those dreary days. When the craving strikes, make sure your pantry is stocked with the ingredients for a few chocolaty, sugary delights. Brownie lovers will be happy they stored away a slow cooker brownie mix. I like to keep chocolate chips and the basic dry cookie ingredients. Dark chocolate bars, peanut butter, graham crackers and canned fruit are good pantry items, too. Our caramel snicker-doodle cookie mix is a fun twist on the classic snicker-doodle, and it is easier to make.
