Foodie Faves: What's Always in Our Kitchen

Whoa, sorry for the radio silence over here. I never could fully catch up last week after Stephen's surgery. Then my family came into town and we spent some much needed time at the beach!!

 Completely random, but I think it's a little interesting to see what people always have in their pantries and fridges. If you are like us, you always have certain staples around. For instance, when I go home to my parents house, I can always count on them having a fresh cookie from Whole Foods sitting on the counter, fresh parmesan cheese,  a variety of crackers- usually mini saltines and Wheat Thins, a drawer full of vegetables and lettuce, Lorna Doone cookies, chocolate chips, yogurt, and barbecue potato chips.
Here is what we keep on regular rotation at our house!

Greek Yogurt....
Usually for me or Weeks, I am recently trying the Siggi yogurt. More protein than sugar and still low in calories. Basically, its really, really good for you!


Mini Powdered Sugar Donuts....
We all eat these and I always have one before coffee or tea. I like something as soon as I get up and this holds me over til breakfast.



Tomatoes....
Especially in the summer time, we always have some sort of tomato variety on the counter!


Wheat Thins....
I especially love the air popped version, they are usually my cracker of choice.

Propel...
Stephen and I love to add this to our water. And I drink a ton of water so it's nice to have some flavor occasionally.


Shredded Cheese....
We always have a ton of shredded cheese, usually from the buy 3, get 2 free special that runs at Harris Teeter.

Oatmeal Creme Pies...
Weeks loves these!

Sprite...
We don't drink a lot of soft drinks but I always have Sprite on hand. I swear it helps with indigestion! Anyone that knows me well cracks up over my Sprite beliefs!  

Eggs and Milk...
You know, the real staples!


Sour Cream...
I love some sour cream. Don't even think about giving me mexican food or a baked potato with out it!

Bananas...
We all eat these too, I bring one with me to work for a mid-morning snack.



Wine...
Because...wine.

Wine is definitely a must in the kitchen! & the buy 3 get to 2 free shredded cheese always gets me at HT... there's usually plenty of that in my fridge!

My husband eats a banana, granola bar, and Greek yogurt every morning before work, so I constantly have to have those in stock. I always stock up on the shredded cheese at HT, too, because you can throw one or two in the fridge and the rest in the freezer until you need them!

Love this post! I'll be doing my own too. It's funny that you mention what your parents always have on hand, I can almost always guess what's in their fridge.
