In my laundry room I have 3 pantry cabinets. Before last week they were kind of a disaster. I had a lot of food but I always felt like I had nothing to make for dinner. So I started project "Inventory My Pantry"!
What fun! Maybe.
We (I made my daughter help) first recorded every item in the pantries and the freezer. Then I typed them all up on a file on my computer. I categorized every item and now I know where I'm lacking (soup) and where I'm over-loaded (baking chocolate). My next project is to base my weekly menus on what is in my pantry. That also means I have to plan a weekly menu.
Look out quinoa, you're going to get used!
