I have a relative that’s become obsessed with buying Tide when it’s on sale. If everyone on earth ever falls into a ginormous mud puddle, I have a direct line to where we can find enough detergent to get everyone clean and still have enough Tide left over to get Nick Nolte clean.
I do the same thing with certain things but not because they’re on sale but because I always think I’m out of it. Tin foil. I always think I need tin foil. It doesn’t matter if it’s on sale or not, when I see it, I buy it. I currently have 5 boxes of tin foil. It won’t even matter that I’ve written this entire post about how much tin foil I have. The next time I go to the grocery store my mind will suddenly start running and jumping around compelling me to buy tin foil, because I’m not reallyyyyyyy sure that I have some. I think I don’t. I definitely need tin foil.
Then there’s the “Always keep in stocks”. The things we always want, always need, always put in our carts. Mine are going to be completely different than yours because we all have different “keep in stocks”. For my mother it seems to be those crispy onions in a can that they used to elevate almost any dish from a casserole to a jello mould.
My always keep in stocks are:
Greek Yogurt or Milk to make Greek Yogurt.
If you come over here on any given day of the week in any given month and you want me to prepare you an Avocado lime cream casserole with a Diet Coke Yogurt sauce … I will be able to do that for you.
And I will be able to wrap up the leftovers in a tin foil packet the approximate size and weight of a hotel safe.
I look through people’s grocery carts or what they have on the conveyor belt and wonder about their food all the time. Often I’m jealous of it and wonder why in the world I didn’t buy a 14 lb watermelon or 16 cans of vanilla Ensure.
I wonder if this is the first time they bought that thing or do they always cook with that weird ingredient I’ve never seen before. I wonder what they’re going to make with it, will their kids eat it and why I’m kind of jealous of their Chef Boyardee Raviolis.
Because I’m wildly curious about food and people’s food habits. You know how people say no one cares about your food photos on Instagram? I DO! I CARE ABOUT YOUR FOOD PHOTOS!!!
So because I’m wildly curious about food I genuinely want to know what your food “Always haves” are. What are the 5 things that you always make sure you have in stock at home? Not including things like butter. Everyone has butter. Or scratch and win tickets. Mainly because you shouldn’t really eat those, they’re very difficult to digest.
Lay it on me! What are 5 things you always have in stock because if you didn’t you’d start to get the shakes?
Lemme know and have a good weekend!
