|Sitting in Tupperware, strawberries are to the left and potatoes for a potato salad are to the right. Juniper Valley milk is delicious!|
So the blog question of the day is: What food(s) trigger a run to the supermarket in your home? They must always be in your cupboard or refrigorator to eat or drink?
Here are some of mine:
1) a gallon of milk
2) dozen eggs
3) bag of carrots
4) ground coffee
5) cheddar cheese, extra sharp
6) saltine crackers
7) cans of tuna
8) cans of whole tomatoes
9) cans of cooked beans - red kidney, pink, or pinto
10) fresh fruit -- however, I mix it up, so not aways the same ones: strawberries, blueberries, oranges, bananas, avocados, pears, apples (and sometimes all of them).
11) Fresh and frozen vegetables - I mix these up too: green beans, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprout. These will change, whereas a bag of fresh carrots is a constant. There is always a bag of whole carrots in my refrigerator.
12) onions, 2 lb bag
13) Idaho or Eastern potatoes, 5 lb bag
14) whole wheat flour, 5 lb bag
15) all-purpose flour, 5 lb bag
16) sugar, 4 lb bag and a jar of honey
17) Nuts - most often walnuts and dry roasted peanuts (technically, not a nut)
18) black and green tea bags (to make hot, or homemade kombucha)
19) oatmeal, a big round 42 ounce box - I use it for breadcrumbs or quick meals.
20) peanut butter (from the health food store, 100% peanuts)! - for snacks, cooking and sandwiches.
I left off condiments or my list would be ridiculously long. Neither bread nor meat are on my list. I can make biscuits or bread with flour as needed.
As long as I have protein at home running out of meat won't trigger a supermarket run. Yet running out of milk or eggs always will!
How about you? What makes you skedaddle to the supermarket prompt-o?
