There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to them. Just crap thrown in there. You may ask "why do you have foil over a jar of peanut butter?" Oh yeah - that's simple. Somehow, someway, my 5 & 4 year old broke the plastic top to it. Throw away an almost completely full jar of peanut butter or throw foil on it? I chose foil.
This is my "cereal and baking" stash. And apparently tortilla chip stash. Why I have 3 bags of chips is beyond me. I think they are all expired.
I really shouldn't complain about my cabinets. They're pretty big - tall, deep and all that. But it's like a black hole for canned foods. I'm going to take the crap out of there and try to figure out what to actually do with it. I have lots of beans, diced tomatoes and barbecue sauce.
My plan? Go to Allrecipes.com once I figure out everything I have. They have this great feature where you can search for recipes by entering ingredients you have. If you haven't checked them out, you should! If I get a result of a lot of recipes, I just sort by rating and make the recipe that has the most ratings. I mean, when it comes to a good recipe - 500 people can't be wrong, right?
