Meditations on a Pantry

February 27th, 2011

Calder is very disciplined in his thrice nightly contemplation of the contents of the pantry.

Not to be confused with his hourly oversight of the contents of the fridge.


  • Kathy from NJ:

    And I am sure there is “never anything to eat in this house.”

    My mother used to cook large quantities of pasta – turned it into macaroni salad in the summer, mac & cheese or spaghetti in the winter. It kept my 6’2″ 150 lb brother happy between after-school & supper AND after-supper & bedtime hours. He now has his own 6’4″ 150 lb (19) and 6’2″ 145 lbs (16) sons to keep fed.

    The photo needs no words…just like opening the fridge and staring for an eternity. Its what we do. I still do it and I am 60.

  • GA in GA:

    Looks familiar, except my teen is female and not nearly as tall. And, even though I shop at the grocer and cook each and every day, we never have anything to eat in the house according to the teen. Especially during cross country and swim seasons.

    Thank you Universe for Peanut Butter.

  • Samantha:

    teens and hunger, it is the nature of the beast.
