If you were to open my pantry cupboards you’d find, like most people, different bags and boxes of pasta, various types of canned beans, and canisters full of bags with small amounts of assorted grains, dried legumes, and nuts bought from the bulk section at the grocery store.  I just can’t resist the fact that I can buy as much or as little as I want.  I’m like a kid in a candy store, filling bags with a little of this and a little of that, some old favorites, and some that I’m not sure I like yet, but I want to try out.  The favorites usually get eaten first and the others left to languish, waiting for a spark of inspiration.
