|Sweets from Costco: Biscotti and Madeleines, two favorites. Indulgent!|
|Blueberries, also from Costco. Produce of Chile.|
|Costco milk: price for 1 gallon around the same or less than|
half-a-gallon elsewhere. I buy it when convenient.
|Locally-roasted coffee from Roos Roast. We are looking|
for a good dark roast, and like "Bad Ass Woman Blend."
|Kirkland tomato sauce: another Costco product. Also Trader Joe's juice,|
Hellman's mayo, and Whole Foods Ketchup. I shop in lots of places.
|In the basement is my pantry overflow. We love Diet Coke, another Costco habit, along with multi-packs of black beans,|
Kleenex, Ziploc bags, dishwasher detergent, and paper products.
Having been away from home, and doing no home cooking for a few weeks, I'm just getting back into the habit of keeping my kitchen stocked up with food and other necessities. My iPhone reminder app has been a help keeping up with lists of what I need at Kroger's, Costco, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and several small local food shops. Recently, I've mainly made plain meat, salads, and vegetables, but hope soon to be more ambitious -- and soon to have some more interesting food items on hand. What are your staples?
I'm sharing this with the bloggers who participate in Bizzy Lizzie's "In My Kitchen This Month." To see the list and Lizzie's delightful photo essay on her Australian getaway: go to her kitchen post for the month HERE.
