Suggestions?
To use a really simple example. Let's say you make spaghetti and meat sauce once a month. You use quart of sauce (homemade or jarred... we'll use jarred in this example), 1 lb. of spaghetti and 1 lb. of ground beef.

Master list: Spaghetti with meat sauce

Recipe: 1lb. spaghetti, 1lb. meat, 1 jar sauce

Pantry: 6lbs. spaghetti, 6lb. meat (canned or frozen), 6 jars of sauce


Now you have, in your pantry, 6 month's worth of spaghetti and meat sauce meals.

Do that with your other master list meals and you have a fully stocked pantry and can make anything you want from it. If you make spaghetti with meat sauce twice a month, double your pantry items.
