Essential Pantry List.....

I wanted to re-publish my pantry list.  I have these items on hand at all times.  For every item I use, I have a back up in my pantry.   Whenever I finish what's in the fridge or in my dry pantry, I put that item on my shopping list and retrieve my back up from my pantry.  I simply cannot stand completely running out of a staple.  I have a dry erase board on my refrigerator and I have a running list.   (I have kids you see, they suck any kind of memory you may have once had right out of you!)
