Other People's Pantries #158
From Lynda, in Bath, Maine:
We bought a house in September and my husband just built me my first pantry, ever.
This Seller's Cabinet was my Grandmother's. My mom told me that Nanny wanted it for months and months, and looked at it wistfully in the store window every time she walked down Main Street. My Grandfather was secretly saving up for it and surprised her with it one day. I'm so grateful to have it! My Grandparents died before I was born, so these stories are very special to me. The sliding table to the right of the cabinet also belonged to my grandmother. My mom had it in our kitchen growing up. We used to cover it in flour and roll out Christmas cookie dough on it every year.
The left hand side is mostly canned goods. In my old cupboard, it looked well stocked but with all of this space, it looks sparse! The right side is processed/boxed goodies, pasta, cereal, coffee/tea, and supplies on bottom. The cupboards in the middle have extra pots and pans, serving dishes, strainers, etc.
The corner shelf holds paper goods, cleaning supplies, and the more attractive serving dishes. Giant pots on bottom.
Baking shelf with extra baking supplies. The baking cupboard in the kitchen is pretty full, I still need to move some down to the pantry.
Our freezer is kind of empty right now. Mostly bread, spinach and sausage links. Lately I have been giving double batches of things to my Dad instead of freezing them (my mom is in California trying to sell their house there, and if I didn't cook for him, he would subside on cream of mushroom soup straight out of the can). Some weekend, here, I will need to have a cooking marathon to stock up again.
That's it! Thanks for looking at my pantry. I love looking at other people's pantries every weekend, thank you so much for running this site and posting these every weekend. It's a lot of fun.
