I've got the basics, flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, chocolate chips, coconut, Craisons, oatmeal, confectioners sugar, and walnuts and pecans for baking and always have some marzipan on hand (I did mention I was Danish didn't I?).
|Sorry, it's a little messy in there.|
|Gotta have the necessities.|
As well as always keeping a couple of pounds of butter in the fridge just in case a cookie attack happens and you need to make an emergency batch of Kitchen Sink Cookies
I also keep an array of canned goods handy. Always have stuff for making Spaghetti sauce (and sometimes I cheat and start with a can of spaghetti sauce and doctor it up) or Mexican food on hand.

Plus odds and ends of hot sauces, pickles and olives, and other sauces as well.
|Best ever Olives, if you can find them.|
And this isn't even all the stuff, I also keep lots of other stuff handy.
|I get these at Sam's Club|
So there you have it, most of what is in my pantry. Oh wait a minute, I didn't show you the oils and vinegars, dang. I also keep several kinds of vinegar handy. Cider, balsamic, rice as well as plain old white vinegar. And then there's the oils. Always have Olive oil, peanut, canola, and toasted sesame seed oil on hand. And I use all of them.
And I didn't even touch on the freezer. Mine is full to the brim at the moment, I took advantage of a couple of sales and now, well, I don't need to buy turkey for awhile.
What's in your pantry?
