This is just one of the cupboards in our kitchen that I have been working on this past week. We donated about 50 pounds of food to the food bank from our pantry because we had things we wouldn't be able to eat before the expiration date. And, I have found in my life that whenever I share with others, I always seem to have plenty for us. I used to use canned foods from the store a lot more, but I don't use them very much now. I still like to have some in my pantry in case I might need them. I would love to have all of the things in my pantry be home canned, but that isn't going to happen at least for now. But, that is my goal for the future.
