Last week I wrote that we were in transition. After being sick, Peanut immediately went into a sleep regression. For almost a month we existed on a mere couple hours of sleep each night. We are through it and now I officially have a walker. He has transcended to a whole new level of menace. Can I also just mention that when I read all the baby stuff before Peanut was born, no one ever mentioned sleep regressions! They wear me down every time but Peanut always comes out of it with some kick-ass new skill.
Onwards friends! So I have been reading Lauren’s organization posts and it has inspired me to get organized as well. So I cleaned out my fridge and pantry! Just kidding, I have a toddler. I just stared and tried to use the force to make it happen. When that didn’t work I just grabbed the girl scout cookies and closed the door. Her posts make me want to be more organized though. So that’s a start.
I when I was making my grocery list this week, I realized it was mostly staple items I was repurchasing. With the weather being crappy we haven’t been going out to the store every day but making meals from the basics we always have on hand. So I wanted to make this post about some of the staples I always keep in the house.
I love having these basics always on hand. Sometimes I see a recipe online or just decide I want to make something on whim. Having these ingredients in the house makes it easier. There are some other items that we usually have on hand that I didn’t include but they are pretty specific to the type of foods we usually cook. Below is a handy list with the basics.
