Ree hasn't been to the store in weeks and she's still got another day to go before she can hit town. Over the next 24 hours she dips into her trusty staples to whip up some fabulous food from what she can find in her pantry and freezer. There's Pantry Pasta for mom-daughter dinner, French Toast With Blackberry Butter for breakfast for the kids and Simple Perfect Chili with Apple Brown Betty for lunch for the whole family.
It's potluck Sunday at the church and comfort food to the max. Ree is making three great dishes that are guaranteed to be wiped out first: Comfort Meatballs, Green Bean Casserole and Red Velvet Sheet Cake With Frosting. Then it's all hands on deck at the church the next morning where the entire family turns out to help Ree get the food on the table -- and eat it.
