In the fridge


  • Carrots, celery, finger cucumbers, green/red bell peppers, avocado (if ripe), jalapeno chiles, green onions
  • Red miso
  • Whole yoghurt
  • Half & half and whole milk
  • Sliced/slivered almonds, California walnuts, Louisiana pecans
  • Fresh pasta (purchased, not homemade; I have limits!)
  • Cheese – parmesan to grate, cheddar, gruyere, queso fresco and queso anejo
  • Homemade rhubarb jam and rhubarb, if it’s season
  • Organic Better Than Bouillon – both Vegetable and Chicken
  • Butter (I have a strange addiction to Land O’Lakes butter.  We make special runs to Safeway – where we don’t usually shop – just to stock up on it)
  • Eggs from free-range chickens (if the chickens from Sandy and Stacey, our neighbors, are laying – they’re the best.  Seek out a local chicken owner, and you’ll be happy 🙂
  • COOKED RICE (an absolute must)
  • Bacon
  • Almond and peanut butter (lordy – we just bought almond butter today.  If it was organic, it was about 3 times more expensive – like $23 a jar.  So much for going organic!)


  • Mexican crema
  • Red Boat fish sauce
  • Soy sauce
  • Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • Sambal Oelek Ground Fresh Chili Paste
  • 2 kinds of mustard (Dijon and Creole)
