Home Tour Tuesday---Pantry Raid

Morning, y'all!

Hope everyone's week is off to a wonderful start! If you missed yesterday's post announcing my fabulous January giveaway courtesy of CSN Stores be sure to click here, or simply scroll down to enter.

With everyone feeling much better and all the icky sickies {hopefully} a thing of the past, I'm excited to be back at it and joining Daphne for another installment of Home Tour Tuesday.

So if you haven't already, snap a few pictures of your cupboard or pantry and join us this week. Whether big or small, cluttered or so organized Martha Stewart would be envious, we've all got a place to stash those munchies and canned goods. Go ahead and show us yours!

Home Tour Tuesday:
1/25: Pantry Raid---Show us your pantry and tell us about your favorite snack

{Our main pantry}

I'm very thankful for our nice size pantry with double doors, though my favorite feature has to be the sliding drawers that make organization a cinch!




{Pantry No. 2}

And as most of y'all can attest, there's just never enough storage. To help with the overflow, I have a smaller pantry that holds all my canned goods and baking essentials, as well as my pots and pans. Our kitchen may be on the smaller size, but thank Heavens for its ample storage!





{My favorite snack}

I could honestly eat chips and salsa every day and never grow tired of this tasty snack. I'm no salsa snob, as I've yet to met a salsa I didn't like. And though I'll eat almost any kind, my favorite salsa and chip combo definitely comes from the local Mexican joint. So yummy!



{Pantry Raider}

Now that Sweet Bean is tall enough to reach the door knobs, nothing is safe. Just the other day I heard a little commotion in the kitchen and entered to find that GG had broken into the pantry, gotten comfy, and decided to reward her efforts with a tortilla chip snack! Guess the love of Mexican food runs deep in our family!



Olé!

Okay...I am so envious of your pantry. And labels, really?? I am lucky things are not falling off of the shelves they are stuffed so tight!! And the best part is that GG has a place to sit and snack in the pantry...love it :)

Coastalpines said...

Labels by ethnicity of food?! I want be you when I grow up! To be that organized in my life would be a dream, although it might scare my hubby...Have a great day!

Laura@Cowboy Boots said...

HAHAHA I LOVED THE PIC OF HER IN HER CHAIR...SHE'S A HOOT

as for ur pantry...i'm in heaven!

ours is the size of a broom closet....i have no idea why on earth they did that in a house this size but it has driven me crazy. we had to add another big plastic cheap cabinet in the utility room (THAT STILL ISN'T BIG ENOUGH OR STRONG ENOUGH) i'm ready to cut a hole in the wall somewhere and make our own walk in pantry! it drives me batty!

Kristy said...

Wow, labels! I have a feeling those would get ignored around here! :)

Aly @ Analyze This said...

That is WAY to organized!!! I like it though :)

ModernMom said...

Oh and now I have pantry envy!! Mine are teeny:)

meghan said...

Oh my goodness. Can you please come and organize my pantry to look like that? I have those horrible white wire shelves that make things fall sideways if they don't fit perfectly...

Suze said...

Your pantry is so organized i love it! I chuckled about GG being caught in the pantry! I've been known to do that when i was little except mine was having to crawl up on the counter and dig through , not as accessible like GG had ha ha.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Susan said...

Oh I love that lil' bit is learning to reward herself at an early age. Being as cute as she is is worth a reward. However, I'm cracking up at the fact that she pulls up a chair and has a seat to hunker down with those chips. Now all she needs is a recliner, a tv and a bag of pork rinds for the big game.

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

You are organized!!! Mine is similar to yours, without the labels. ;) Love the pantry raider!

Tara @ Tara Being Tara said...

Ahh - you have TWO pantries?? I would love to have even one!! I love the idea of organizing your canned goods by type of food (ie: Mexican, etc.) instead of just type of canned good. Makes a lot more sense!

Kristin said...

I will do you all a favor and not share my pantry, m'kay?

Though I am jealous of yours, labels and all!

Joni said...

my pantry is a sad sad place that i will spare you the visual details. i a so totally jealous of your large organized pantry.

and chips and salsa are my absolute favorite in the world. i could definitely eat them every day. i LOVE fresh homemade salsa and usually grow a garden of tomatoes and peppers every year for this very specific purpose. :)

The Regal Pup said...

Dang girl, you are super organized! I can't believe the labels you have! Thanks for the fun peek into your pantry.

P.S. I'm a fond lover of chips and salsa myself! ;0

SassySillySpunky said...

So organized! I love the labels. No pictures of my pantry today, we just painted our front room and kitchen and I'm still trying to get everything all put back together!

Mama K said...

I want your pantry!! So organized and BIG!

Mexican is one of my favorite foods too...I go for the unhealthy cheese dip over the salsa though :)

Jumping Jack said...

Dang, girl! You are SUPER organized! I love it! Those drawers are awesome.

I could eat chips and salsa everyday too! It is by far my favorite snack!

That GG - she's something else. Little stinker sneaking in to the pantry! Too cute!

Lindsay said...

You are SO organized!

flip flops and pearls said...

Dang S.....I need all that room sista!!!
I am such a freak with my label maker, lol. If my shelves were larger, they'd fo sho be labeled!

Aweeeeeeee sweet beanie!!

Meant to be a mom said...

Your pantry looks so nice and roomy. So much cabinet space. Love it!
And you keep it so organized. JEALOUS!

Cool Gal said...

I just posted on Daph's page and listed the same exact snack as my favorite. I like guacamole, too. So good!

I am laughing at all your labels. That is SO what a teacher would do. LOVE IT! Very organized!

Happy Tuesday!

Kitchen Belleicious said...

No way you have your pantry labeled like that! I am so jealous. I have a good size pantry and the problem is that since I love to cook I have a problem with always trying to make sure it is completely fulL! LOL! My husband is like we don't have to fill it to the brim just because its big! LOL! Anyway, I adore yours and thanks for sharing! Have a fabulous day!

Karen At Home said...

Hi Shannon, one of these days, J and I are going to have to take a road trip to see this amazing house of yours. I am telling you, it is beautiful!!!! What an organzied pantry! Your label maker is killing me!!!
Chips and salsa are my weakness too and taco night is a staple in our house. Glad to hear it's the same in your home!!

Liz said...

Oh you are soooo organized, how I wish I could be that good!!! Looks great! :)

I love that GG just plopped right into the seat and started snacking. That is exactly what Abby would do. In fact, the pantry is her favorite room in the house, LOL!

Same Sweet Girl: Memoir of a Southern Belle said...
