Pantries

Ahh pantries. Don’t know about you but they always seem to have left over quantities of so many miscellaneous items and you keep piling it in.

I am fortunate enough to have three racks in my basement for excess food storage and my pantry unfortunately is usually a mess. It’s supposed to be for the day to day stuff. You know, like coffee, tea, cereals, sugar, flour, and such. Well today when I did the pantry, I had 19, count them 19 boxes of miscellaneous pasta boxes open in there. Arrrgh. And why would I have 19 boxes, well because the pantry is such a mess, I open a new one because I don’t have time to look at which ones I have open. So another is opened, partly used and the rest goes in the pantry.

Well being confined to the home due to the virus, I’ve made more meals than usual and I want to have access to what I want and need during prep time. So I took the time today and cleaned the pantry. Now I know what’s in there maybe I won’t be so tempted to open a new box of anything. Let’s use up what is in there before we have to throw it out. Surprise yourself with a meal that is made with your leftovers in the pantry.

Enjoy your pantry again!
