how to list from a distro?

I have my sources.list setup like in the apt pinning howto. I set it up to
install some specific packages that I needed. I want to mainly be running
stable. I discovered that I installed another package without realizing that
only exists in unstable.

Is there a way to list all the packages that are installed from a particular
distro? I read up on the apt-cache manual but I don't see a straitforward way
to pull it off.

There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so
simple that there are obviously no deficiencies and the other way is to make it
so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
