Taking back control…

by agirlandhermutt on October 15, 2010

I came home to find a little mess on my hands.  My pantry decided to revolt and throw up onto my kitchen floor. 

I tried to blame it on Korky, but really its just my disorganized self that caused this little mess. I realize this doesn’t look like your typical pantry, but its a big city pantry. Ya get what ya get. ;)

I had a couple of things on the To Do list but  decided that this was top priority. Hello organized pantry.

While I was at it, I took care of the canned goods “pantry” too.

Things I do NOT need to purchase for several grocery store visits:

Polenta–I have 4 logs. WHY?!
Instant coffee–I don’t drink coffee at home. Where did this come from?Tuna—I am apparently preparing for an apocalypse.
Falafel—I must have experienced a shortage in my past life.
Chickpeas—11 cans. Yep. 11.
Black Beans—10 cans. Not as many as the chickpeas but on the verge of being a hoarder.

It felt good to do a little cleaning out and to see what I had going on in the way deep back of those cupboards. I’m feeling all kinds of recipe inspiration coming on! I’m also feeling a major overhaul of the fridge coming. *Shudder* Any volunteers?!

Q: Do you hoard any kinds of food? What are some must have pantry items that you always have?
