When I first moved to the house of the enormous pantry, I didn’t do much grocery shopping. It just seemed wasteful – we already had so much food. This led to some forays into uncharted food territory, but mostly I ended up making a lot of substitutions in recipes that I already used. No sweet potatoes – I have carrots. No cinnamon – I have cardamom. No rice – I have tiny pasta. No spinach – I have kale.
