The staples of your kitchen

Postby Kelsey_13 on Tue Jan 19, 2010 8:46 am

What food do you currently have in your kitchen that is always there? For instance i've been on a grilled cheese and roman noodles kick lately so i have that. also frozen individual yogurts and tortilla chips and cheese. I've been eating the same things for months and i was wondering what you guys have as "go to meals" when you are to lazy or drunk to think of anything else.

Fresh fruits (especially bananas or kiwi)
rice
black beans
ramen
stuff to make hummus (chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, etc.)
eggs (I get them free)
tofu
frozen veggies (usually peas)
sweet potatoes
pasta
wheat thins or triscuits (for the hummus)
nature valley granola bars - usually the peanut butter kind, for breakfasts on the go
kim chee dumplings - I get these at the nearby asian market for $3.69 and there are probably 40-50 dumplings per bag (and they're vegetarian)

And speaking of ramen, I'm a pretty big fan of taking it and making an actual meal out of it, which usually requires cooking on the stove, but it's still really quick. I'll only use about 2/3 of the flavor packet and add a little low-sodium soy sauce, crushed red pepper flakes, garlic powder, lime juice, and often a few frozen peas, a few dumplings, and SOMETIMES a beaten egg (think egg drop soup). This actually stetches everything into TWO meals, so I'll take the rest with me to work the next day. Obviously, you can use whatever additions you want, but this is kind of my official go-to meal.

Chicken Adobo
1 pack of drumstickes- about 10
1 cup soy sauce (I prefer the kind made in the Philippines, I think it's Silver Swan)
1 cup plain vinegar
1 cup water
1 onion- cut into stripes
Bring to a boil, lower to medium. Cook until chicken is starting to fall off the bone.
Serve with white rice and snow peas, or veggie you like. (use the sauce on the rice mmmm)

Yakisoba noodles, apples, ground beef and hamburger helper or spaghetti sauce and noodles, frozen fruit bars, packs of rice/ noodles with sauce, egg beaters. my husband likes to eat cans of spaghetti o's so we usually have some of those around. I also keep some of those bags of salad mix in the fridge for quick salads, and some pears too b/c I love them.

my families version is similar. every phillappino has a different method. think garlic, peppercorns and bay leaves. mmmmmmm....
for extra texture; after the chicken is done in the pot put it in the broiler for three minutes on each side. it's AMAZING!!!!!!!
i am not ashamed of what i am but it often makes me sad.

Pork Chops, steak, potatoes, and ramen noodles. I'm not even kidding, it's pretty much all my boyfriend and I eat. I like to make a stir fry of sorts with the noodles.
Boil the noddles then throw them in a frying pan with some oil and a dollop of peanut butter. Fry them up for a few minutes, add some vegetables and soy sauce, a little garlic and some other seasons if you'd like. We have a stir fry sauce I like to add. Yum!
Okay, ramblers, let's get rambling.
