Desert island foods

  • 2

OK the other post about choosing only 2 regional cuisines for the rest of your eating days reminded me of a game hubby and I once played...

You are stranded on a desert island, but you can have an unlimited supply of 10 foods for the rest of your days.

It was eventually agreed upon that there would be other foods available if you had the skills to obtain them, such as tropical fruits and fish a la the "Lost" desert island, but you could not stumble upon all the requisite ingredients for a banana cream pie like on the "Gilligan's Island" desert island...

So I think these were my 10. Some were more specific than others but hey, it was just a game...
nuts
cheese
garlic
butter
tomatoes
flour
mushrooms
olives
chocolate
beer - ha!

  1. this has been done before, but i'd say...

    eggplant
    tomatoes
    bragg's amino acids
    cauliflower
    onions
    carrots
    broccoli
    eggs
    lettuce
    ... can't wait to see and eat all the tropical fruit... hoping some lobsters live off of this island!
    (mushrooms if i could still eat them, along with balsamic vinegar... my list would be very different if i didn't have so many dang allergies...)

    1. Diet Coke
      Lindt 85% chocolate
      Ice, lots of ice
      Rum or cachaca
      Beef (this assumes there are ducks on the island)
      Whole goat milk
      Serrano peppers
      Jasmine rice
      Potatoes
      Cheese
