Re: What are your staples?

I do a lot from scratch food so that list is pretty long
pantry we always have:
multiple flours
yeast
corn meal
sugar
honey- like 10 lbs worth- we like honey
good choice of spices
Chicken and beef boulion
canned green beans, carrots, corn, tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce
canned peaches, pears and fruit cocktail
canned pumpkin
rice
pasta- lots and lots of pasta
dry beans- black, kidney and navy
oatmeal- lots and lots of oatmeal
grits
dried cranberries
wow butter
tea bags
graham crackers
apple sauce
potatoes
onions
garlic
olive oil
veggie oil

Fridge:
in addition to the normal butter and condiments we always have: These are things we replace when getting low even if we have no designated use for them.
Shredded cheese- mozz, cheddar and parm
pickles
carrots
strawberries and blueberries

Freezer- we stock meat once a month from Sams so we always buy the same meat and make the menu based on that.
5 lbs hamburger
2 whole chickens
2 pot roasts
1 full pork loin- gets us about 10 meals of pork chops
2 flank steaks
chicken breasts
chicken nuggets
fish fillets
I also keep in the freezer
pancakes
whole and cut green beans
Broccoli
single serve guac
rice pilaf
spanish rice
chicken broth
strawberries
veggie burgers
black bean and rice burritos
25 lbs of flour
homemade pizza pockets

This is the stuff that we always have. Didn't list any stuff that we get that is recipe specific or occasional buys. This all stuff (except the meat, by the end of the month its getting slim, but the exact same will be bought to replenish) that you will find in my house at all times.

Re: What are your staples?

I forgot
Coffee and tea
garlic bulbs and olive oil
Cream cheese
There is likely more as I like a well stocked kitchen. It makes eating out less likely.

Pantry:
-flour, oats, sugar, honey, pasta, beans, tomatoes, bbq sauce and gojuchang (korean spicy condiment)
Coffee (bc nobody wants to live with me if we run out lol)
Applesauce (originally for DD, but apparently DH eats most of it)

Pantry/fridge: fruit (depending on season, but we always seem to have a stockpile)

Fridge:
Cheese, milk, eggs, potatoes, onions, lemons, limes.

Freezer: well, before the massive outage that caused me to chuck everything:
Ground beef, lamb chops, b/s s/s chicken thighs in dinner sized packs
Bacon, individually frozen strips
Usually one or two large roasts like a pork shoulder or chuck roast
Freezer bags of veg and chicken carcasses for stock
Frozen veg - usually peas, edamame, cauliflower, green beans
Frozen leftover soup/stew in single serving amounts
Hm marinara and bolognese sauce
Ice cream! Dh and i have a weakness . Breyers, ben and jerry, or a local dairy

I can ALWAYS come up with a decent meal! I really miss my freezer stock
