Unexpectedly, we will not be able to go grocery shopping this week so we have to use what is on hand. I couldn't go months without buying food but I could easily come up with a menu for a week without buying anything new. We are low or out of fresh eggs, cheese, meat and fresh fruit or vegetables.
I am glad to have things like yeast, vanilla extract, butter, honey, plain yogurt, flour, salt, pepper, sugar, milk (fresh, canned and powdered), shortening and oil. I have some powdered eggs that I could use in an emergency.
We always have popcorn, rice, pasta, lentils, and beans.
We generally have pancake mix, maple syrup, apples, carrots, potatoes, onion, garlic, canned tomato, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, cereal, and oatmeal.
I think cumin, oregano, cinnamon and basil are pretty useful spices to keep on hand. I am glad to have more spices than that though. I keep them stocked up so I wouldn't have to buy much for awhile.
Tea and hot chocolate
We have some frozen vegetables and fruit that I am happy about.
