Other People's Pantries #40

From Mary (Mary's Nest), in Texas:

Our pantry is packed to over capacity! I often joke with my husband that we could easily live off the pantry for a month -- or longer -- without ever going to the grocery store. The picture shows a front view but to the right is a continuation of the shelves which are also packed.

I love stocking up on Italian canned tomatoes, tomato paste, sun-dried tomatoes, bottled artichokes, hearts of palm, chicken stock, olives, all sorts of pasta, biscotti (stored in my colorful jar), olive oils, vinegars, honey, coconut oil, nut butters, Fredericksburg (Texas) peach preserves, dried beans, baking needs, teas, spices, herbs, breadcrumbs, and more.


On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.

Come on -- show us your pantry.

Here's how.

Hi Lydia,

Thanks for highlighting my pantry. This was a lot of fun to visit all your readers pantrys. Love your blog!

All the best,


How fun! I'll have to shoot a photo of my pantry for you. I think a pantry tells a lot about the person.

Nice pantry, very well stocked!

Looks like a great pantry to me. I love how well stocked and organized it is.
The straw canister with the single straw is a funny element against the bounty of the pantry!

My friend has told me the same story! I think that the purpose of a pantry is to be prepared and your's is prepared Mary!

Our pantry is well stocked too, but nowhere near as organized.

I just found your blog and I love it! I think the Pantry peek is my fave, I will have to submit mine!

I loved reading the comments about my pantry. What fun! Thanks to all.

It has taken many years to get it to the level of organization seen here. (I am in my 50's so I have had years of practice! LOL!!)

How I laughed when I read the comment about the straw. Yes - that is one thing that no matter what I do, I never seem to have enough of. My husband has sensitive teeth and uses so many straws. It is an ecological nightmare! LOL!!

All the best,
