My pantry is not a separate room and consists of 2 cabinets by the back door. After tossing every single item due to pantry pests, (gross) I vowed never to fill it up again....that didn't last! As much as I try not to shop for processed pantry foods, I am notorious for having a Barefoot Contessa moment where I buy jars of spices, sun-dried tomatoes, different kinds of oils or whatever the recipe calls for. I never get around to cooking it and might even buy it twice when Barefoot Contessa moment #2 happens several weeks later. As I have said before, in my imaginary house I am building, I would most definitely have a pantry room. One where toasters and latte machines and blenders could be loud and proud in the closet and happily reside amongst the 9 jars of pesto and sun-dried tomatoes of tarts never made. If you read my post on the ultimate mud room with the built-in dog kennels, you might be thinking what I am thinking...this imaginary house is getting bigger all the time. Oh well, who in their right mind dreams with limitations!
When buying or selling a house, please remember me!
