I've had numerous requests about the contents of my pantry. Ok, actually only one person has inquired about the contents of my pantry, but she's done it several times! So I thought I'd take a few pictures and tell you about them. You might not need or want the things that I do and that's fine, it's all about what you like and want. A well stocked pantry is essential. With the right essentials you can whip up a meal in no time at all. Plus, having the essentials in your cabinet will save you money. How many times have you run to the store for 1 thing and come out with 10? TGIM does it every time I send him. LOL!
I always have different typs of beans (pinto, black, garbanzo, kidney etc.) rice (wild, brown, white) and lentils and whole grains (quinoa, barley)
The bottom shelf in the picture (the real bottom shelf currently has some empty canning jars) has various bbq sauces, hot sauces, jams and jellys, green chile peppers and things like that.
For a printable list of what I use most often click here. Remember that you don't have to go out and purchase everything on the list at once, or ever. These are what I use most and generally always have on hand. It's by no means comprehensive of what other things may randomly be in my pantry, just what normally is.
I didn't even go into what's in my fridge and freezer. I'll save that for another time.
