Default What's in your pantry?

The preamble to telling you about mine has to do with a fast approaching overnight snow that could be significant. I went to Costco and the regular supermarket around midday today to get things I generally go for on Sundays. The Costco parking lot was a harbinger of things to come inside where the aisles were packed. I negotiated them as quickly as I could and got out of there to go to Stop N Shop where the parking lot also foretold craziness inside which included no shopping carts to be had other than stalking someone who had one on their way to their car with it. There were no shopper scanners either and I normally do self scan and bag as I go. Anyway I got the things I needed and checked out, but I am still sort of dumbfounded at how many people at both stores seemed to be in panic buying mode because of the storm. All sorts of stock was very thin on the shelves.


With that as background I don't have to panic buy when storms are coming along since I generally have a well stocked pantry. I also have a freezer (bought because of home cooked dog food storage, but now much appreciated in general. Aside from the usual spices, herbs and cooking spray/oil I always have peanut butter, tuna fish and canned chicken, cereal, canned soup, a couple of jars of pasta sauce, pasta itself and salad fixings in the regular pantry. In the freezer I have some frozen dinner items, ground beef, chicken breasts, vegetables, some more soup, a loaf of bread and rolls (for burgers or tuna/chicken/egg salad sandwiches).


So what is in your pantry for times when you are not able to get to the store?

Wow - on my top shelf I have foil, plastic wrap, baggies, etc.
Next shelf pasta (including all sorts of rice noodles and bean thread noodles)
Next shelf staples for chinese/japanese cooking.
Next shelf, staples for mexican cookery, including a wide selection of canned chiles, jars of salsa, etc.
Next shelf canned tuna, canned chicken, sardines, anchovies, quinoa, jars of bouillon, salad dressings, peanut butter.
Bottom of pantry - oils (ran into a big sales on olive oil, so I have 4 bottles of it right now), vinagers, cereal, big bag of New Mexican dried chiles, sucrose sweetner.
Most canned goods are in a different location.
Also have a bunch of stuff in a cabinet over the stove.

Not sure what any good would come of this in a storm - but boy we eat well :-)

Not much in my pantry. I can survive for a long time on peanut butter and oatmeal...

Well, my cupboards are always stocked with rice, various dried beans and lentils, pasta, etc, plus tins of tomatoes and fish and jars of pesto. Then there is the baking shelf - bread flours, cake flour, nuts and seeds. I usually keep an extra bottle or two olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and plenty of coffee and tea. Cheese, butter and eggs in the fridge; fruit and veg (some from the garden) and dog food in the freezers (I have visitors this week, and remembered the stewed apple I froze last autumn - very useful!). We rarely have the sort of weather that blocks the roads, but it is at least 15 minutes driving to the nearest supermarket, and it is a pain to run low on essentials.

No snow here, but I have a very well stocked pantry (pantries!) because I love cooking and make most things from scratch. I always have multiple kinds of flour, rice, pasta and noodles. I have extensive baking ingredients, dried lentils and grains, oats, way too many varieties of oil and vinegars, loads of Asian sauces, spices, a slightly insane flavoured salt collection, tinned tomatoes, chickpeas, lentils, beans, passata, dried fruits and nuts, sardines for Rory. My freezer is usually pretty well stocked with Rory dinners, chicken wings and drumsticks, random leftovers and meat, frozen veggies (and ice cream!). I always have butter and eggs and my herb garden is flourishing!

Your pantry sounds like mine. I always have eggs, tuna, peanut butter, cereal, crackers.k soup and bread, rolls, english muffins, coffee, creamer & milk. I gave away my freezer as it was too big for us. We also had a full house generator installed after Hurricane Katrina .Hopefully the freeze that is expected after the storm will not last long and the warmer temperatures will thaw you all out. Stay safe & warm. Oh when we lived up north we also had plenty of firewood, just in case.

Oh yes, I always have eggs. Post Sandy was what convinced me to get the chickens. We also got a portable generator after Irene and can keep our frig going, make coffee and watch DVDs on a TV to help pass the time.


At any rate we did get snow and lots of Long Island has really heavy wet snow since there was a rain mix in many places for a while. We have power and my campus is starting classes at noon. I have a lecture at 11:00 that won't meet today, but my 2:00 lecture and my evening class will meet.


Of course our bad weather was not the only bad weather overnight. There was lots of active weather in the south with the horrible devastation of those tornadoes in Alabama that killed over 20 people. I can't imagine how scary it must have been. I hope everyone who we know is safe.

I grew up in Minnesota, land of many blizzards and lots of frozen lakes. We always have an emergency stash of food on hand. I tend to bake and make soups and stews when snowed in so the freezer gets even more well stocked during blizzards.

I do, however, always double check that I have toilet paper on hand and sufficient pet food, and a full tank of gas in the car when I hear of an impending storm. I always carry blankets, extra gloves, extra socks and scarves and a food stash and other essential items in the car in case I HAVE to venture out and get stuck somewhere in the car in a snowbank.
