Other People's Pantries #63
From Bridget (Bake at 350), in Houston, Texas:
One thing I have discovered is that it is HARD to take a pretty picture of a pantry or in a cabinet!
Since moving, I now don't have to store my spices and baggies, parchment, foil in the pantry. That is a real help! Now I'll be able to stock up on things more.
I like to use baskets, too. I have one basket for packaged snacks...like granola bars (you can see we really like Cascadian Farms Sweet & Salty bars). We have a basket for onions, garlic, etc.
Another basket is for chips....chocolate chips, mini chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, cappuccino chips...you get the picture! There are some bars of baking chocolate in there, too. I like to be stocked in case of a chocolate baking emergency! I'm embarrassed to say how many times a day I am in that basket, even though it is not at eye level, to grab some chocolate chips.
The seasonings and sprinkles are not in my pantry, but in a cabinet next to the microwave. I can't tell you how much easier that makes life! Before we moved, it was ALL in the pantry. It's nice to have a little more space, and I like seeing all of my food coloring and sprinkles on their own shelves.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
*Other People's Pantries was going to end early in 2009, to make way for a new Saturday feature. However, pantry photos continue to roll in, so I'll keep featuring them on Saturdays, in the order in which I receive them, for a while longer. If you've been thinking about sharing photos of your own pantry, now's the time to send them.
