This week we ask:
What are the top 3 food items in your pantry or refrigerator?
Frances of Discovering the World Through My Son’s Eyes: Rice, potatoes & a green veggie (green beans or collard greens).
Jennifer of The Good Long Road: milk, eggs, apples. Our boys go through milk like I cannot believe. We had one month where we spent more on milk than diapers/wipes, though doing a hybrid of cloth diapering does keep our diaper costs down. Still…
Skyla of At Home with Momma Skyla: black beans, rice, and cucumbers
Alyson of World Travel Family: eggs, garlic, olive oil
Cordelia of Multilingual Mama: Milk eggs yogurt though since I make the latter with the first I’ll add rice to my list. Bananas were once a must. So glad we are past that phase.
MaryAnne of Mama Smiles: beans, rice, and cheese (preferably extra sharp cheddar). I should specify black beans. Those are my favorite.
Valerie of Glittering Muffins: Nico would say pasta/rice, ground beef, chocolate. We say chicken, tortillas, eggs.
Azarnoush of A toddler, his mum and their recipes: milk, eggs and pasta
Annabelle of the piri-piri lexicon: Cheese, pasta, tomatoes
Amanda of Miss Panda Chinese: We must have rice, thin spaghetti, and eggs! If I can add one more it will be ice cream.
Ute of expatsincebirth: Vegetables (depending on the season), pasta, olive oil.
Olga of European Mama: Pasta, rice, milk
Becky of Kid World Citizen: According to my husband: fresh corn tortillas, limes, and Rocky Road ice cream (the last is his new discovery;).
Jody of Mud Hut Mama: Our closest grocery store is an hour and a half away and I probably go a little overboard with making sure our pantry is stocked up but if I had to choose just three must haves they would be milk (cases of long life milk), meat (a deep freeze full – I love vegetarian meals but for my family to eat them I have to serve them with a side of bacon) and chocolate (my husband can be a real grump if we run out).
Varya of Little Artists: rice, macaroni. Fridge – vegetables, fruit, milk.
Mary of Sprout’s Bookshelf: Pasta, cheese and apples – and woe to me if I run out of any of them!
Heidi of 2KuriousKids: greek yogurt, dino buddies (freezer) and peanut butter!
Lynn of Nomad Parents: Pasta, crushed tomatos and whipped cream
Carrie of Crafty Moms Share: Apples, milk, pasta
Jill of Moms Gone Global: Yogurt, hummus and broccoli & cheese ravioli
Suja of Blog Me Mom: Fridge – Yogurt, red bell peppers and milk. Pantry – Macaroni, crackers and wheat bread
And ours? Similar to others, rice, cheese, and potatoes.
