I feel like a lot of us are opening up our pantries these days and looking for something … anything … tasty to throw together. via GIPHY I absolutely don’t want to go to the grocery store unless I have to, so I’ve been stretching my culinary muscles to make the most of pantry essentials. Because if there’s ever been a time to embrace being basic, this is it. via GIPHY And you don’t get much more basic than beans and rice.
