Stocking The Pantry

  Stocking The Pantry Knowing that cold weather is on its way always puts me in a nesting mode of preparation.  Just like the squirrels and other woodland creatures, I want to stock up on food and prepare my home as much as I can.  Each Autumn, my grocery store has a case lot sale where cases of canned goods can be purchased at a discount.  It’s a great time for stocking the pantry, and I fully line my shelves with as much food as I can store.  It gives…
