5 Things

Here’s an interesting game I just made up: Name 5 things you should always have in your refrigerator, your freezer and your pantry.

Just to make it a little easier, I’m not counting the “staples.” So, assuming you already have garlic, onions, butter, olive oil, salt, pepper, flour and sugar, what 5 things you should stock in each area to ensure that you can always make a tasty meal?


  • Cheese (preferably more than one variety, but if I have to have one, I’ll go with Parmesan)
  • Eggs
  • Salad greens
  • Lemons
  • Dijon mustard


  • Italian sausage
  • Boneless chicken breasts
  • Bacon
  • Pizza dough
  • Sandwich or hoagie rolls


  • Diced tomatoes
  • Canned white beans (cannellini)
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Pasta
  • Chicken stock

If you decide to play, leave a link to your post in the comments!
