    Just out of curiousity and due to my pure boredom..

    What is some food products you have to have in your house?

    For me just recently i am addicted to Nesquik! The powdered chocolate stuff you can put in milk! its great! That and um..well ok..maybe this is'nt really food..i am more of a beverage gal..i have to have diet Mountain dew or something like that. Caffiene! Not that i don't like food..just my family buys the same thing over and over..bread..lunch meat..soups..you get the idea..i get tired of it all easily!

    But what are your all's must have products?
    So come on baby, get in
    Get in, just get in
    Check out the trouble we're in

    right now my fridge looks like that of an alcoholic old lady (or gay man) - lots of wine, a cooling eye mask, olives, sherry, hot sauce. there's not much else in the rest of the kitchen.
    usually my staples are at least milk and coffee, some fruit... but really i don't cook much on a regular basis. i need to start doing that more instead of eating out all the time or buying ready-made salads at the deli.

    Sugar
    Tea
    Rotel tomatoes
    sandwich stuff
    velveeta cheese slices
    mac and cheese
    bread
    potatoes
    onions

    We are such easy people! Hubby doesn't like "heavy" meals during the summer so we eat lots of sandwiches and on Sunday I cook a meal. It's so easy to make some mac and cheese with rotel or fried potatoes with onions...um it is almost lunch and I am making myself so hungry!!

    Hmm, as far as "staples" go, I must have and keep on hand:

    Coffee
    tea
    sugar
    splenda
    basmati rice
    potatoes
    onions
    half and half
    eggs
    bread
    beans and lentils
    some quick, instant meals like mac and cheese, soups, tuna etc

    Then for the veggies, I shop once a week and hit the market and get fresh fruits and veggies.

    Is rotel a Texas thing? I noticed a lot of people like Rotel.

    I just tried it for the first time a couple months ago. It was really good in my chili.

    Rotel is good in everything. I think it's a southern thing - we grow up eating spicier foods in a lot of cases - I know I did.. My mom makes them homemade and it's delicious. I sometimes will sautee chicken breasts in a little butter and onions and add the rotels and then add all that to a box of Velveeta Shells and Cheese mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    That does sound good. I will have to try the Rotel with chicken and onions.
    You are making me hungry.
