Queen of the Pantry!

Jude over at the long-toothed hinterland dweller has named me the Queen of the Pantry based on the responses to my photos in the Bloggy Tour of Homes. I like it! Through touring other people's homes in bloggerland I got some good ideas, including one day having a laptop in the pantry, with a folding chair . Then I can keep an eye on dinner (rather than forgetting about it altogether) while still blogging. Although someone wrote back and said that that wouldn't necessarily help: she has been known to keep blogging while dinner burned only a few feet away.

I have tried to make a 180ยบ view of my pantry heaven, but this is the best I can do. Also tried to make a "movie" as some others have done, but much of each photo gets left out. I also tried powerpoint for a slideshow, but figured some people might not have the necessary software. This will have to suffice, starting from the righthand side:
This is the middle.
Lefthand side

Also thanks to Jude I have corrected a HUGE mistake in the Greek yoghurt, honey and orange syrup cake recipe I posted recently. I had left off a vital 2 in the amount of self raising flour. It should be 2 ½ instead of ½ cups - BIG difference! But because of that I looked up how to type fractions nicely ½ as opposed to 1\2. Hold down the alt key and press 0189 on your number keypad. For ¼ it's 0188 and for ¾ it's 0190.

I truly believe you are the all time Queen of the Pantry. Who wouldn't love all that space!
My husband thinks we must be the Shrine to Scooby Doo based on the bloggy tour! :-)
It was fun though...

Val...I have NEVER seen a pantry the size of yours. You deserve the title.

Queen Of The Pantry, I should say so! I have never seen one like it. This must make cooking so much easier.
Thanks for sharing.

Val, I think you're the queen of organization! How neat and tidy your pantry (Panty:)is! And what a lovely lot of space you have! I'm chuckling at your comment about almost leaving out the 'r' :)
I'd probably burn dinner anyway too...wouldn't matter how close I was sitting.
You've done well with the pictures.
