First, I took everything out.
Then I sorted what I had by group:
|Grain! I love to use canning jars to store things: oatmeal, millet, quinoa, flax seed, chia, slice almonds, etc.|
|Beans/Ro*Tel. My fave food group.|
|Soup! I heart soup.|
|My mixes, a variety of countries are represented in my pantry.|
|Vegetable stock is my basic.|
|Beans! Staple of a vegetarian diet. Yes, those are black turtle beans. |
Members of my recent trivia excursion know how those beans hurt me.
|I buy these in bulk at Sam's. It says the jars are re-sealable, but I eat the entire jar and drink the juice in one sitting.|
I heart pineapple.
|Fixins! Peanut Butter powder for smoothies/oatmeal. Nutrional yeast, sea salt. Used sparingly and often.|
I invented a recipe using 1/2 cup of quinoa, 1/2 can of rotel and 1/2 a cup of corn. Delicious.
And I perused my stash of cookbooks to find a curried lentils recipe that is currently cooking in the kitchen and smells delicious. We'll see how it goes.
Either that or I guess I'll starve.
