I have the same problem. Never anything to eat...

And of course you just went to the store to pick up a few things and came home with a large grocery bag or two filled to the brim.

Very true! I could feed a family of 4 for at least 6 months if we had some kind of disaster but I can never find anything to eat

Oh, gosh, it would be easier to list what I don't have in the house! I have almost all the same flours as PF, except I also have graham flour and wild rice flour, brown rice flour. I have arrowroot, tapioca, and cornstarch.

Vinegars include balsamic (white and red), red wine, white wine, cloudberry, fig, raspberry balsamic, malt, coconut, cider, plain, fish and chip vinegar, ume plum, and champagne. Soy sauce, tamarind paste, fish sauce, and vegetarian hoisin

Oils include EVOO (several different grades), canola, Lime EVOO, Lemon EVOO, mushroom EVOO, coconut, almond, avocado, mustard

Canned goods: water chestnuts, evap. milk, coconut milk, coconut cream, (that's it)

rice: basmati, cargo, wild, sweet rice, black rice, brown rice (several grain lengths), sushi rice, rice for risotto

cereal: oatmeal, grits, Red River Valley, 10-grain, 12-grain

Seeds and nuts: pumpkin, sesame, cashews, pistaschios, almonds, walnuts, pecans, chia

Pasta: awhole lot

Beans and legumes (dried): black, chickpeas, lentils (brown, black, orange, green, French), adike (sp), romano, split yellow peas, split green peas, blue hominy, a type of mexican beans (I'd have to get up and look), lima, navy beans, white kidney beans, red kidney beans

Dried mushrooms (morels, oyster, etc)

Dried cranberries, raisins, sultanas, currants, dates, tamarind pods

Herbs and spices: Too many to count, but have a lot for various types of cuisines

Powdered milk, powdered buttermilk, powdered soy milk

Sugar: several different brown sugars, raw sugar, and white (which I've had for 2 years and haven't used up, yet)

I am sure I have more in the pantry. I haven't counted the jars of tomatoes, pickles or sauerkraut or all the stuff still in the freezer.

This explains why I don't have to go to the store very often...and why I NEED two full-sized fridges. I could probably eat for a year without having to go to the store if I didn't like cheese and other dairy products so much. I tend to buy fruit and dairy. Which reminds me, I probably should pull a turkey out of the freezer for next weekend.

I have a pantry in the kitchen and another one in the basement. I cleaned the one in the kitchen today, so I may be able to think of it's items:
Rice, biscuit mix, pasta, taco shells, assorted bottles of liquor, various bags of chips, soup, canned fruit, candy, pancake mix, crackers, cake mix, jello, pudding, marshmallows, nuts, chocolate chips, drunk mixes, a basket of dish towels, tea, bread crumbs, graham cracker crumbs, canned fruit, jars of different sauces, Welch's grape jelly and grape juice, French's onions, pie filling, popcorn, syrup, potatoes, toys for the grandkids, garbage bags, dog treats and biscuits, cake decorating stuff, dust pan and hand broom, bird seed, swifter dusters, light bulbs (the old kind-not the silly curly ones), lunch bags, griddle, George Forman grill, rock salt, bags, batteries, plastic cups, plasticware, paper plates.............

I'm sure I've forgotten something.

By silly curly bulbs I guess you mean energy saver bulbs?
