Other People's Pantries #85
From Kelley (The Polished Pebble), in Corona del Mar, California:
I converted this hall closet, that I used to use for coats and shoes, into a pantry. Not a big challenge but it proved to be important to me as a cook. Let's peek inside, shall we?
I am sort of a neat freak and try to keep this pantry stocked and organized most of the time. I keep all cookbooks together, which I quit buying... one, because I'm running out of room and two, because a lot are just not that great. The canvas storage bins hold onions, garlic and potatoes and dog chews (YUM). Baking goods, flour, nuts etc. are all on the right and condiment and canned goods are in the center.
Keeping my shopping sacks at hand helps me to remember to grab them before a trip to the market. Need to use that mop a little more...
My spice drawer is just to the right of the stove and I don't keep spices around for long. They either get used up or out they go! I try to keep my spice collection to a minimum and toss unused stuff at least every 6 months.
Last but not least is our breakfast pantry with all the stuff we need to get us going in the morning. We love the Keurig coffee maker and use gobs of the k-cups each week.
So there you go... and just so you know, I did clean up a bit before I took these photos!!!
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
*Other People's Pantries is booked into October. If you'd like this feature to continue, please send in your pantry photos. Pantries are featured every Saturday, in the order in which they're received.
