Too Much Good Stuff


My sister suggested this post, so here goes. Her kids love my pantry. They think it's like AM -PM or 7-11. This is what it looks like on a random Thursday. It hasn't even been freshly stocked like it is when the boys are coming home or someone is coming to visit. It's full of junk food. In french they call it "Plastique food." My neighbor once told me "Your kids have the most colorful snacks!" Her kids love my pantry. There is a book called Whole Foods For The Whole Family, my question, is that a whole bag of chips as opposed to a half bag? Whatever you call it you really shouldn't have this much. We do have a lot of teenagers come to the house, and they are always hungry!

Mmmm...I'm hungry! Was your neighbor politely insulting you? How funny! Colorful people need colorful snacks and hey, if it makes everyone want to come hang out at your house, why not?

I'm not letting my kids see this post. I'm happy if they think all you have is the orange tree :) otherwise, they'll never leave!

Diane, I now stalk your blog because I find it so amusing--linked over from Jen or one of the Sunshines. I have pantry envy, BIG time. Not so much because of the junk but because of the size! WOW!

Sunshine said...

Wow!...I'll be right over. I do love a good snack!

I love seeing in other people's pantry. I see many similar items. Our snacks are quite colorful too. At least the fruit bowl is on the counter so when people see the kitchen they can assume we all just eat healthfully all the time.

Yummy!!! If we are ever in a crisis I know where I will be.

where are the oreos??!!

I totally jealous you have a pantry. My kitchen is so tiny that I have to store most of my food downstairs under the stairs.

It's also good to know what to be prepared with when your kids are teens. And I think my grocery budget is killing me now...
