Kind of X-posted from LJ. 

So ... I have made this list for my sanity. We only have about a month of classes left, and I will be interning elsewhere (yay Cambridge area!) during the summer and am currently looking for a sublet.

This is the list of food, primarily pantry items, that I have collected over the course of ... about two years, although most of it comes from this past year, and it excludes the pantry/freezer/refrigerator items that we share (butter, garlic, onions, and frozen broccoli, for the most part). The full bag of lentils is about 2 years old because I said to myself, "I should cook with lentils because they are cheap and healthy!" And then I never touched them.

I had no idea I actually had this much food. It only takes up three cubes of mesh storage and a bit of the fridge/freezer. I kept buying more than I needed at the grocery store "just in case" because I wanted to make sure I could actually cook something if the roads became impassable (which didn't happen nearly as much as I thought it would on grocery shopping days, but almost every single time I commuted anywhere) ... and that's in addition to some of the weirder things I got over break because my vegan sister volunteers at a co-op and can thus buy crazy things at a 17.5% discount and give them to me out of the goodness of her heart.

Some have suggested cooking up the dark lentils for salad and making miso soup (my lazy food). I think I will make savory muffins for dinner tomorrow using some of the spelt and barley flour, raisins, almonds, and a few other things. 

Note: this list does not include spices, for the most part. I have lots of these, including lavender buds, thyme, and marjoram.
