FOOD TO HAVE ON HAND …at all times for yourself and for Guests

People always come over to eat.  It doesn’t matter if it’s 9am or midnight, there’s people dropping by.  For a meal. For a drink.

Here are some staples that I think every kitchen needs for the owner and for guests.  Most of the stuff can be stored.  No reason not to have it.

DRINKS: I don’t have anything but water and wine, but hey, nice sodas in glass jars, San Pellegrino Limonatas, San Pellegrino.  Or just lemons and sugar and tell them to make lemonade. lol

EGGS: speed to taste to health ratio…scrambled eggs wins.  nice runny fried egg on ANYTHING. yeah.

CHEESE: Lots of it. Different kinds.  Burrata.

COFFEE: good stuff.

GOOD BREAD: Good crackers. Grissini. Not the nasty stuff.

PICKLES: Pickles last indefinitely.  Mustard. Sun-dried tomatoes.

DUMPLINGS: another thing that can be prepared on a lazy sunday in front of the TV, frozen, and tastes good reheated.  Raviolis, too. […]
