I’ve been wanting to do a post on some of my favorite things. Mainly, what I keep stocked in my pantry at all times. I’m am sorry in advance for the unbelievably unorganized state of my kitchen.
I ALWAYS have Harina P.A.N in my pantry. It’s the cornmeal used for making Arepas, which we have every Friday night. Yeah. I also always have a quick pizza crust mix, you know, for emergencies. It wouldn’t be my house without some sort of nut butter. I have peanut butter toast every morning but I was out of peanut butter the day I snapped this photo. I always have black beans because I can add those to every meal. I also love tahini, it’s wonderful in just about everything.
The top shelf of my fridge has a Brita filter because my water has to taste like absolutely nothing. I always have non-fat creamer for my coffee and almond milk. Is it weird that I’ve been saving that coconut water for a special occasion? I need to just drink it already.
I buy almond milk in bulk because it’s cheaper and, as a plus, it lasts in the fridge longer than cows milk. Also, we have a ton of hot sauce we hardly ever use. I really need to clean my fridge.
Okay, I’m sorry for my spices. Not only is the photo horrible, but it’s also just a huge cluster of stuff everywhere. I wish I had better storage in my kitchen. Anyway, these are the main spices I use regularly. Not labeled but equally as important is ground cinnamon, herbs de provence and ground ginger.
There are several other ingredients not pictured:
- Cheese (shredded cheddar & Italian blend)
- Greek yogurt (this is my current favorite)
- Dark chocolate (I love to eat it when it’s cold)
- Quick cooking oats
- Whole wheat bread
- Brown sugar
- Cheerios (honey nut and plain)
- Jasmin rice
- Pasta (short and long)
- Blueberries / mixed fruit
- Green beans
- Garlic bread
- Bread (I always buy two loaves at a time)
- Veggie Patch falafel
- Morning Star ‘bacon’
I’m sure I missed something but that’s all for now. Is there anything your kitchen can’t survive without?
