Packing the kitchen means to pack and store appliances in moving boxes. You will not be able to access any appliance or refrigerated food stuff. You get limited time to cook as you also have to pack rest of the house.

They are light weight and can easily be packed at the very end. And all you needone pan and pot when it comes to these recipes. You can create delicious and nutritious meals even when your kitchen is being packed.
