Pantry Staples

I am finally doing a bit of work on this page! After stocking my cabinets from a beginning-of-the-month grocery trip, and prettying them up nicely, I decided to snap pictures of the beauty that is my pantry at this brief moment to share.

Seeing this abundance displayed causes me to be both grateful and sober.  Our needs are richly provided for! The Lord is generous to us! But he also has much to say about those rich towards themselves and stingy towards others.  Oh, that we would use our money and resources wisely and generously so that we won’t hear words like that at the judgement:

Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. (Ezekial 16:49)

In the Cabinet

  • Organic Pasta Sauce (It’s one of those things I know is super-easy to make, I just like to have these on hand.)
  • Organic Tomato Paste
  • Rotel Tomatoes
  • Diced Tomatoes (One day, I’d like to can my own)
  • Brown rice (my favorite)
  • Jasmine rice (Erich’s favorite)
  • Organic beef and chicken broth (Though I do make my own chicken broth when I cook a whole chicken, I often need more broth than I make, hence the pre-made stuff.)
  • “Just Fruit” spreads
  • Corn kernels (for the very occasional popcorn treat)
  • Gluten-free brown rice pastas of all shapes
  • Dried beans (Kidney and pinto are the two varieties we use on a weekly basis.  I recently moved over to dried from canned since I was using them so frequently. I actually have far more jars full of dried beans than you see pictured here.)
  • Canned beans (Just black beans now. Soon I’ll probably start cooking up big batches of them too and freezing them so I can save money. Plus the cans aren’t so healthy.)
  • Small bottles of wine (I use them in certain recipes, and since we don’t drink wine regularly it makes better sense to keep some small bottles on hand.)
  • Coconut Oil

In the Fridge
