Other People's Pantries #116
From Risa (Sweet Oven Lovin'), in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina:
To start, my top shelf is dedicated to cereal. I'm a bit of a cereal freak... no kidding, I could eat it morning noon and night and be a happy gal -- if only Hubby were so open minded.
The second shelf usually holds various boxed staples, such as barley, tea, tortillas, syrup, etc. I say usually because... well things tend to get a bit shuffled when you ignore your household organizational duties. Eh, it happens. (see how I have to hide the chocolate in the pantry, out of sight out of mind folks).
The bottom shelf is for canned goods and small stockpiles. For example, I have enough Kraft BBQ sauce to last me until next summer -- no kidding. Mayo, tomato paste, flour -- nothing fancy. And on the floor I keep overflow items and my re-usable grocery bags. In the back left corner I have my stash of dishwasher tabs to assure my hands stay soap-free for at least another year, ahhh the simple things!
Now next to my stove I have everything that I use on a regular basis. Bottom shelf is savory spices, salt and sugar (hey, how'd those kisses get there?!). The middle shelf I keep baking spices, chocolate chips, sprinkles, cupcakes cups... you know, all the fun stuff. And the top shelf holds the pasta maker I used once, ok maybe twice, and the flour and bulk spices.
On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.
Come on -- show us your pantry.
