What do you have in your Pantry?

What do you have in your Pantry?

cupboard
Keeping a pantry well stocked has more than once saved me, especially when I have run late getting myself into the kitchen to prepare a meal. I should point out that I prefer fresh veggies over canned ones, but sometimes a can has to do a sit-in. Also since I live in California, also known as Earthquake country, I have a good excuse for my can collection.

The other day I was organizing the pantry and was wondering exactly what makes a good pantry. I will share my pantry goodies and hope you will add what's in yours.
