Pantry and refrigerator staples

Strawberry chutney, a block of cream cheese in my refrigerator, and crackers in my pantry are staples in my kitchen. They came in handy when I had to entertain unexpected guests yesterday.

  2. I'll definitely look for the strawberry chutney. I use raspberry-chipotle sauce over cream cheese with crackers. Yum!

    I am going to be sure to have all three staples in my pantry for times when I, too, need to have
    something GOOD to serve to guests.....or maybe even to myself and hubby!! I bet a glass of wine would go great with this snack!!

    Have a HAPPY PINK SATURDAY and weekend, too....
