From Kim, in South Pasadena, California:
Here is my pantry -- or should I say pantries. I live in an apartment that has three bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is really just an additional room that sits right next to the kitchen and I simply made it into a prep/storage room.
In this room I keep my backup flour and additional canned goods that I don’t use all that often or stuff that I got on a killer sale. I also keep specialty pots and pans as you can see on the wall (notice the tagines).
This room keeps pretty cool in the summer and gets quite cold in the winter. In addition I have a small chest freezer (not shown).
I know this seems like a lot for a single person, but in my defense my parents grew up during the depression, and I have never shaken off the habit of hoarding food. Also I live in Southern California, and here you can get any ingredient you can imagine for any type of food -- and I just can’t resist.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
*Other People's Pantries will be ending to make way for a new Saturday feature. However, we'll keep peeking in pantries as long as you keep sending your pantry photos. So, please send your photos as soon as possible.
