My Staples, Part 1

>> Wednesday, February 17, 2010

I've been asked what things I always have on hand, so I decided to do a 3 part series of those items. Today, I'll cover the refrigerator, Friday I'll cover the pantry, then next week I'll cover my spice cupboard.

I usually have a lot more than this at any given time. These are just the things I always make sure I have.

What I always have in my fridge:
sharp cheddar cheese
real butter
sour cream
tortillas (corn and flour)
Dijon mustard
tons of veggies (tomatoes, lettuce, green onions, celery, carrots, broccoli, cucumber...)
lunch meat (always turkey, sometimes ham as well)
Asian items (soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, etc)
hot sauce (Sriracha, Tabasco, etc)
salad dressing (usually homemade, very rarely store-bought)
milk (2% for drinking, whole for bread-making)

What things do you keep in your fridge that I didn't have on my list?

Edited: because I can't believe I forgot the Worchestershire!

I just recently started keeping lemons in the fridge and lemon juice because alot of the recipes I try call for it and Worchester sauce (sp?) is another new thing I keep in the fridge as well!

I think I have an excessive list of staples! Maybe I should rethink my list! Lol...

These are a few additional things I always have: bleu cheese, mozarella, cream cheese, nuts (usually almonds and pecans, and yes, I keep 'em in the fridge), sour cream, pickles, BBQ sauce, yellow mustard, Worcestershire, relish (for tuna sandwiches, of course), canadian bacon for those last minute pizza nights...

Other than that our lists look almost identical.

Oh, ginger, lemons & limes are another few that I always have.
