We all have those thing in our kitchen that are our must haves. They always have to be in the cupboard, and they are your go to in the "what to make for dinner" "last minute...can you make this" type of stuff. For me it is a list of all the things to make my families favorite dishes.
I just got to thinking maybe you don't have a stock pile of things in your cupboards, perhaps you live in town and your can run to the store for last minute times when needed. Well living in the middle of nowhere that isn't an option for me. I make a weekly run to the store for all my basics but more than likely I am back at least once to pick up something I forgot or if I decide to make something new and don't have it on hand. No I am not patient enough to wait till next week. It has to be now.
Flour: white, wheat, cake
Sugar: white, brown, dark brown, sanding, powdered
Butter unsalted only please, when I get down to two pounds I start to worry
Vanilla: Only the good stuff, and vanilla beans
Eggs: lots of them
Yogurt: plain is better to work with
Cream cheese-I am out right now, used it up on the dessert.....not good.
Heavy cream & fat free half and half, always in my fridge
Re fried beans
Cake mix & frosting-emergency purposes
Brownies-still working on homemade ones
Cheese- at least 5 different ones, minimum
Carrots, peppers, onions, broccoli, strawberries, mushrooms, apples, lemon
Cool whip-yes it's okay
??? I am sure I left something off that I will regret later.
What's on your must have list? Honestly mine got longer than I expected it to.
