It’s another edition of LET’S LOOK!
Once a month, Erika and I host a link up where we “look” at little aspects of our lives. If you’re a blogger, make sure you blog and link up!
Here’s what we’ve been “looking” at so far this year…
In January, we looked at the coziest spots in our house
In February, we looked at our favorite reads
In March, we looked at the people in our family!
And today, we’re looking at our PANTRIES!
I had to really stop and make sure I didn’t type panties there.
Ha! Call me crazy, but posts like these are some of my VERY favorite to read on other people’s blogs! I love little peeks inside to see how people “do” life. I think a pantry tour is the perfect little glimpse into other people’s homes. Now, Andrew and I have lived in five places over the last fifteen years and definitely had our fair share of pantries. This is the first place where we actually have a walk-in pantry and not just a few shelves, so I’m pretty pleased with mine. In our last two homes, we kept food in a lot places besides the pantry because we just didn’t have the room (like the laundry room and even one time, the master closet!), but now, we have plenty of space. On Saturday morning, I walked in and took some pics with my assistant Madeley by my side.
Welcome to our pantry…
Come on in! Not gonna lie…sometimes, I sit on that little stool with the door closed and have a snack in the peace and quiet. Ha! My friend Amy made my sign filled with all of our favorite sweet recipes.
On one side, I have all of our plates, bowls and serving pieces stacked…
…plus, some of our small electric devices that we don’t use every day.
My parents gave us a Vitamix Blender years ago and we use it all.the.time. Next to it is…
…my big wooden salad bowl which is currently housing our bread for the week, avocados (which were underneath it) and bananas.
You guys know how much I love a little lamp 🙂 .
We toast up waffles and bread every single morning.
I can’t have too many little bowls. We all use them for snacking and dips.
The middle drawers have paper napkins and place mats plus…
The cabinets below hold…
…some more appliances like my slow cooker, electric griddle and hand mixers.
This cabinet has all of my seasonal spatulas (see below), cups and other odds and ends that we use in the kitchen.
Did you know that I do this? I change out my spatulas with every season…
…I currently have my Easter ones displayed in the kitchen 🙂 . For every holiday, I have a spatula.
The top of the other side is for our margarita machine and all the fixings. I also have my plain white serving pieces up there too.
All my baking goods!
You need cupcake liners, sprinkles or extracts? I have a bin for that! I also have a bin of “chips” (white chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter chocolate, peppermint, etc and nuts for baking).
I apparently am afraid of a cornstarch shortage. Why so many?
I bought these bins about six months ago and they’re great for snacks and things for my kids to make their school lunches. Underneath each bin is a second bin with more stuff.
All the canned goods, boxed goods, grains and such we need for cooking.
Andrew has a dedicated shelf for his protein powders, cups and such. That basket is for all of my onions and garlic and then the rest is just stuff we need.
Applesauce is Madeley’s favorite thing…besides cheese.
Snacks and lunch stuff!
That’s the end of our pantry tour!
Thanks for taking a look!!! Next month, we’re looking at…YOUR FAVORITE #OOTD!
Make sure you link up if you blogged today too!
I hope you all have a fantastic Wednesday!!!
