Saturday Pantry Suggestions
Happy Earth Day! My husband and I disagree on this day, I believe as Christians we should above all people be taking care of God's earth so anything that helps us remember that is a good thing.
What can I say... I am a Crunchy Con (remember the book, I loved it!).
Now for the pantry... for my family, the most important part of keeping a good pantry is having a list of necessities. We can't afford food that sits there unopened for years (although having said that... I do sometimes have something new to try which may sit awhile).
So, I thought today it might be good to give you links to some excellent pantry lists and articles about the pantry. A few are new, and a few are "oldies but goodies" from my sidebar.
May these inspire your list!
The recent Pioneer Woman pantry post... here
The Pioneer Woman's PDF pantry file... here
The Christian Home's pantry list... here

Come to think of it, here is a list of all the Down to Earth stockpiling posts... here
My favorite pantry article from the 1990s... here
A good PDF article about how long to store items... here
I think this list will keep you busy for awhile. For further info, I do have my Deepening the Pantry list of links on the sidebar. There are a lot of other good places for information to visit in those links.
I need to spend a week or so updating all my links (I know there are a couple dead links there). But that will have to wait until... oh... perhaps the heat of July and August? ;)
