When we first arrived in Cambridge I looked online for a Pantry Checklist with no success. For some reason when you are faced with completely empty cupboards it is difficult to think straight about what exactly it is that you stock your pantry with. And on the flip, often when you have been living somewhere for a long time there are items that accumulate in the very back corners of the top shelf that get passed off onto a neighbour only when you move.
Barley (for soup)
Whole Wheat Spaghetti…it won’t take long until you can’t even taste the difference.
Beans (whatever combo suits in your favourite chilli)
Mustard: The best is whole grain. Good on sandwiches but also great on roasted potatoes and in dressings.
Okay, well I am sure I have left something out…it’s getting a little dry but I always get so excited when my grocery order comes that I thought it would be fun to write on. It was a good exercise anyway and I hope someone found it helpful.
