It seems like I always happen to live in a place that requires a well stocked pantry in case of some natural disaster; typhoons, earthquakes and hurricanes. Rarely do we ever experience such natural disasters but it pays to be prepared. Especially when I am working hard, forget to go grocery shopping and find that I need to make dinner. At times like this, it really pays to be able to go to the pantry and whip up a delicious meal in minutes.
