shelf 2

whole wheat thin spagetti, quinoa, red lentils, brown rice, dried navy beans, dried black beans, small chunk TVP, large chunk TVP, chickpea flour, whole wheat fussili, small shells, falafel mix, 4 boxes vital wheat gluten,

shelf 3
grits, quick oats, buckwheat flour, crackers, popcorn, organic carrot cake mix, the omni’s raisin bran, apple sauce, cashews, dry roasted peanuts, dry roasted edemame, peanut butter, raspberry preserves

bottom shelf
all purpose flour, organic raw sugar, nooch, soy sauce, maple syrup, chickpeas, navy beans, pumpkin, arichokes, diced tomato, black olives, pineapple

This was breakfast yesterday and it was soooo good. These pancakes turn our perfect every time.

No morenew  groceries for a while so I’ve got to be a bit creative with what I’ve already got in the house. Now, some bloggers out there have incredibly well-stocked pantries. I, unfortunately, am not among them. BUT I did still manage to whip out some delish pancakes with an apple-cinnamon sauce [no maple syrup 😦 and my goodness is it ever expensive out west].
