What mustn't you run out of?

Cinnamon May 12, 2009 02:23 PM

For me, it's limes. I love Southeast Asian cuisine and caipirinhas.

    chilies. I grow them year round, and I'd go crazy if I ran out. I use them in pretty much every dish I make

    1. jo_jo_ba RE: Cinnamon May 12, 2009 02:51 PM

      Mustard, lettuce and canned tuna. Wasabi's always a plus.

        Good crusty bread, a hunk of some flavorful cheese, Spanish or Portuguese dry sausage, cornichons, olives. As long as I have these, I am always good to go.

          Olive oil. We're leaving for our primary home in about ten days and I'm trying to make the last bit last so I won't have to buy more. But I doubt I'll make it. And, yes, cheeses.

              What's so special about TJ's mayo? I am asking honestly (not being snarky). Just curious because I can't live w/o my Hellmann's.

                TJ's mayo tastes exactly like Hellman's, which we were slaves to, but it's less expensive. Plus... it's organic!

                  I'm not being snarky either, but I find that TJ's mayo is absolutely nothing compared to Best Foods (Hellmans') . Just another opinion.

                  I tried it once, because I am a TJ shopper and usually like their products. The mayo was not as terrible as Kraft's, but it did not in any way compare to Best Foods (IMO)

                  OK, since almost everyone went to town with a list instead of one ingredient, I have to add some from your list to mine:

                  toasted sesame oil
                  rice vinegar

                  ... but practically speaking, Diet Coke, Lavazza gold espresso and whole goat milk are my real mustn't run out ofs.

                      I absolutely hate to run out of anything. I start to panic when I only have 1 jar of mayo in the pantry. Fortunately, I have a large pantry. I cleaned out my cupboard with baking supplies and found 17 bags of nuts. It really is a sickness.

                          I'd say coffee, absolutely, also milk, butter, good bread, red wine and oranges. I could last quite awhile with those.

                              truthfully, and i never thought i'd say this, but i'm pretty all set with lobster in the amounts i had them in previous years.
                              i'm going to be doing a lot more U/W photography this year. but there will still be room for a few (dozen) mega lobster rolls.

                            Coffee and fresh milk. I can cope with no food in the house, but no coffee's a disaster! Ideally, also cheese, yeast, bread flour, and butter or oil.

                              Garlic. There is always something around to cook which will taste good with garlic. A lot of things need garlic to be at their best.

                                Diet Coke and/or Crystal Lite drink mix

                                Like others, I can live w/out food in the house but MUST have either Diet Coke or Crystal Lite 24/7. Only exception is that one vital cuppa in the a.m. (and Diet Coke icy cold and slammed hard can substitute)

                                  Yeah, sadly, diet coke for me too. Been an addict for 26 years and counting.

                                  I should add it doesn't have to be diet coke. Diet soda of any kind. I'm actually partial to wild cherry diet pepsi.

                                    That's where we differ. I don't touch Pepsi products.
                                    I will drink a diet RC or Shasta cola, but NOT Pepsi.
                                    Has a very unpleasant aftertaste for me.

                                      Actually, it's the wild cherry alone that I *adore.* I don't like regular diet pepsi at all—but believe me, I'll drink it if it's the only diet soda available!

                                          Coffee, half & half to put in it, and at least the bare minimum ingredients to make some kind of cookie.

                                                    I prefer not to run out of chevre or dark chocolate. Our priorities are a bit different.

I don't eat them- they are all his but he will text me when I'm at work and he runs home for lunch: "More Bananas please, baby. Please. Seriously. We are almost out." HA!!

                                                      I feel lost if I ever run out of: garlic, olive oil, coffee, bacon, butter and cookies. It rarely happens, actually.

                                                          That's my list, too!

                                                                I'd say coffee, except that we have a Sheetz down the block and their coffee is good and replenished frequently so I never have a coffee "situation" at my house.

                                                                So my answer is hot sauce, which I will never run out of since I have around 20 different bottles. (Thanks Peppers, of Rehoboth Beach, DE!)

There was even a local comedy troupe called the "Dead Alewives." In high school we would use there dried carcasses along w/ driftwood for mini bonfires.

                                                                                  Could live along time on just that.

But when I traveled a few years back and was on a boat for 6 weeks, Me and my crew lost wallets, credit cards and cash during a bad storm, and I did report everything missing, and I could of gone to port and waited for a wire transfer. Well call me crazy, but me and my crew decided to live off the land. We traveled way south through Central and South America and stopped at some local ports. Some local produce we picked, some staples on the boat we had, fresh fish almost daily, some canned food and tomatoes and pastas and it was interesting to see how easy it is and how unique it is to live simple. No truffle oil, sesame oil, fancy ingredients, vinegars, special spices, this and that. But just necessity. We caught fish and sold them in exchange for fresh vegetables at some ports. Vinegar, plain cider if any. When it comes down do it, you can really cook great food without all these special fancy ingredients.

                                                                                  A favorite still is grouper in a banana leaf with a mango, avacado and papaya salsa with just a little oil, lime juice and mint. A local pepper and some plantains and dinner. People forget what true cooking and cooking from the land is all about. I learned a lot of 6 weeks and loved every minute. To make a mango sauce with chili shrimp with fresh spinach and plantains and coconut and many other fruits, some long grain rice. Salt and pepper maybe, spices, limited if none but not required. We get way too spoiled and depend on fancy over priced ingredients to make us sound great when the basics can be made with few ingredients.

                                                                                  I am a firm believer and I am sure I will have those that disagree but I believe it. I'm home and I do like my canned tomatoes, cream or milk, broth but it is amazing what you can make with very little. I love shortcuts because life now is not what is was on the water. Two different scenarios. We sold fish to buy chicken at one of the stops and who knows what shape the chicken was in. And others worry about only buying the perfect organic chicken vs a chicken from a regular grocery store. We would of been thrilled to see a grocery store that had chicken period or having the money to buy it. Yes we made this decision but it was like a test. It was fun, adventurous and educational and taught me a lot.

                                                                                  I dare anyone to do that just a week and see how different you may feel without all the comforts of cooking. And appliances. A fire pit and small 1 burner stove. 1 large pan 2 pots and a few tupperware.

                                                                                  It really teaches you the true art of cooking not what cooking has become. But as I said, I'm home and today it is much different, different style and different life. So I cook as life dictates but I still appreciate the experience I had as well as the education I had.

                                                                                  1. TLC1971 RE: Cinnamon May 14, 2009 11:21 AM

I used to babysit for my granddaughter and my daughter uses ice trays and isn't too good at keeping them filled. Drove me crazy to go over there and find that there was no ice, so I would take gallon bags of ice with me! I drink water all day and I HAVE to have ice!

When we upgrade, that is a *want* but I do have it at work, where I am more then home so it works out. My gfriend from Ukraine doesn't believe in ice, I guess. I was floored when we visited and she didn't have a single cube in the house! S'ok, I still love her but it just seemed...weird.

I always keep pastas (usually fettuccine), pasta sauce, shredded parmesan and some herbs in the fridge so no matter what I can feed an unexpected group a delicious meal with minimal cost. Other must haves are good artisan bread, butter.coffee. Ritz crackers, fruit and Jif honey roasted peanut butter (my big weakness)

Also cornichons (although I can breathe easy as long as there is some kind of pickle around), hummus (plain or roasted red pepper) and pita chips. I also keep a fully stocked candy cupboard, so I know I can breeze by any time and grab a handful of chocolates. And I try to keep bottles of wine stocked in the house, but they always seem to disapear rather quickly. And lately, I've been obsessed with those little oranges (Cuties), so they are always around. I like things that I can grab in small bites when needed. Oh, and also Cederlane frozen burritos (especially the cous cous and veggie).
