In addition to the items in our Setting Up Your First Kitchen
checklist, we have also prepared a basic pantry checklist. These are staple items
that will let you bake a quick batch of cookies, offer a guest a drink, provide
nourishment during a movie (popcorn and a soda!), season a recipe and whip up a basic
meal when you haven’t been to the grocery store yet. Also, use this checklist for the
graduate getting a first apartment, for throwing a “pantry” wedding shower for the bride
and groom to be, or for updating the items in your own pantry.
