My pantry hasn't been this bare in a long time!!! It makes me squirm a little too
I will probably do a partial restocking soon, but the good thing is this has made me aware of the remaining things that have been lurking for a while and have got to be used up.
Yellow split peas (going to make Dal)
Peanut Satay sauce
Phad Thai sauce and rice noodles
White beans dried (will make soup with turkey bacon and veggies)
toasted buckwheat (2-3 c dry) - planned to make energy bars, but have never gotten around to it
need ideas for:
Quinoa (have about 5-6 cups dry!)
1 can black eyes peas
Millet (have about 3-4 cups dry)
Barley (2-3 c dry)
some other random rice noodles (stick type I think - have to check)
I also have some random condiments -
green olives with pimentos (unopened)
opened jar of hot peppers in oil - HOW LONG IS THIS GOOD? anyone know? Maybe I should just toss it - I have no idea when I opened it!
a few others - forgot to write them, so I'll have to check later
Oh, I had a tube of anchovy paste that was opened so I decided to toss it. Anyone know how long those last? I've gotten better now about marking the date on things with a marker when I open it - sure helps a lot!!!
*I've love that veggie barley soup recipe someone offered before (have to look back I forget who!!) We eat meat, just don't do beef, so no beef broth.
I know I could check allrecipes and I have a ton of cookbooks, but I'd like to get tried and true ideas for some of this stuff!!!
