What's in your pantry?

Thought it might be fun to do a DC Pantry Raid
What would you typically have in your pantry? I don't mean at this moment, more like when you've done shopping

My pantry consists of a cabinet. Can goods up top, box items below. Bulk items (toilet paper, paper towels) get hidden away under my round tables with long skirts or in my walk in closet. Laundry products, under the kitchen sink. Gee, I love living alone. I spend less than $200 a month for living expenses. And that includes food for the month plus what I donate to the food bank each month.

Well if you insist. tomato products, all seasonings and spices, seasoned bread crumbs, baking soda, baking powder, soup base products, canned milk, three different vinegars, dark cocoa, canned roast beef hash, clam juice, Chicken Noodle Soup, box of English Breakfast tea bags. I buy all can goods in twos and threes.

Below, old fashion oatmeal, two five pound bags of sugar, plus what is in the canister, large canisters of Folgers coffee, three different kinds of pasta, restaurant style pancake mix, snack crackers, Triscuits, graham crackers, Oysterett crackers, Cheerios, (for snacking) bag of flour, plus what is in the canister, cake flour, large sea salt. I keep on the shelf next to the stove a canister of flour, sugar, salt cellar, olive oil, vegetable oil, pepper. Pepper never gets used. I should give it to my son.

In the freezer is individually wrapped Italian sausages, breakfast links, chicken legs and thighs, large two inch thick pork chop, Porter House steak, Cabot's butter, house brand of butter for baking, individual servings of mac and cheese, nuts of all kinds, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, orange rind, lemon rind, lemon juice cubes, frozen orange juice.

That more like it! A proper snoop

I only buy one bottle of light and one bottle of extra virgin olive oil. They stay in the kitchen. A bottle lasts about 3 months.

Canned Pantry: Canned Albacore, Salmon. Canned beef, chicken and pork for Shrek. Canned beans - several types. A wide selection of Progresso soups - for quick lunches at work. Bertolli pasta sauce, pickled beets, canned mandarin oranges, peaches and pineapple. Some canned veg - peas, corn, green beans. Sardines, kipper snacks, Vegemite, jams and jellies, Peanut butter, Almond butter, Sunflower butter, Cashew butter. Wet cat food. Olive Oil Mayonnaise. Tomato sauce, tomato paste. My onion and garlic bins.
I use very little oil and fats. My canned fruit, jams and pickles that are homemade all live in my fridge where I can get to them quickly
