Pantry Peek

I know there's a cooking blog out there somewhere that features peeks into different food bloggers' pantries. I keep waiting until at least part of my pantry looks really spiffy to send a post to it, but of course the "spiffy-looking pantry" part is never going to happen...

In the meantime, here is a small portion of my pantry. You can see quite a few French elements here, and a few American touches.

I'll be happy to take any questions.

What is hanging up on the left?

I like the screening over your cupboard door.

Betty C. said...

tut-tut -- I see you have quite the eye for detail!

Way up on the left you see a vestige of my daughters' childhood arts and crafts attempts -- some sort of homemade keyring that is hanging from a bag that is on the very top shelf.

Yes, the screening is very nice. My husband bought the whole piece as is.

I wouldn't dare post a pic of my pantry -- it's far too untidy!! We're lucky enough to have a walk-in one (and very little in-kitchen storage space) so it's full of bottles, jars, cans, bags of stuff for recycling, little-used pans and crockery ...

I assume this isn't the full extent of yours?

Mimi from French Kitchen said...

I wish I had a pantry. My pantry is a section of the cupboard and now it has spilled over into the countertop.

Betty C. said...

Veronica, no, this is not the full extent of mine. I have a combined pantry-laundry room which has several food storage areas, including the one I took a picture of. Plus a pantry-style set of shelves in the kitchen. So I might have a few pantry shots to take when I'm out of blogging inspiration!

Is that a cheese safe? Mum has one in the room that used to be the garage and is now the spare room - quite pungent in the summer! I don't have a pantry but I feel a picture of my "cans" cupboard coming up!!

Nicole said...

Cool. I love looking into other's kitchens and pantries. It is my favorite part of the house.

I had a go at a photo of mine.

Oh how fun - I love getting a peek into other's spaces!

Here's mine if you want to take a look!

katiez -- I was wondering if anyone would notice that! I think my daughters brought it home from some educational experience in grade school. The other side has sheep. It was hard to choose...there are probably more sheep in Aveyron but I think cow breeds are a little more interesting.

Do you ever get those pesky moths? We had a bad case of them this year, and no matter how tightly closed I kept everything, how clean the cupboards were or how many of those horrible sticky boards I put in there, we still had a problem!
I see you have a lot of things in jars. Should I decant stuff into jars, do you think?

Betty C. said...

Duchess, all of my "stuff in jars" is jams and things like that. We do get moths in the summer, I think in American we call them "fruit flies." I'm not around much in the summer, though, so I've never tested the closed cupboard as far as storing fresh fruit in there. I suspect the little critters might even be able to get through the screening...

We also have a big problem with normal flies. I guess that's part of the joys of country living...
