Frame: SB’s Kitchen

August 25, 2010

This morning my favorite person saved me the food section in the Boston Globe, which I read while waiting for a performance review. My nerves were soothed by a cute little article entitled “What’s in your fridge?”- a piece about (what else?) the contents of your fridge and what they can say about you. With that as inspiration, here are the 13 things that are always, always in my kitchen (cupboard and fridge). These are the things that I get a little twitchy about when I’m running low on, my absolute must always haves. What do these say about me? You be the judge.

1. Lemons.

2. Good butter.

3. Wine. Red and White.

4. Pasta noodles, both long and short.

5. Parmesan cheese. Plus at least one other type of cheese.

6. Garlic.

7. San Marzano crushed and diced tomatoes.

8. Rao’s Marinara Sauce, for when I’m feeling too lazy to make use of #7.

9. Cream. I am unapologetic about this.

10. Some form of ice cream or frozen dessert.

11. College Inn Chicken Broth. No other brand.

12. Parsley.

13. Either Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, or some variant on the spaghettios paradigm.

    I would like to know how you settled on College Inn as your chicken broth of choice. I’ve been aimlessly wandering around the cartons and cans, unable to make a commitment. Help me, SB, help me.

    Seriously – I’m at the point where I’ve start to freeze chicken bones as part of a master plan to make/freeze my own broth. YOU KNOW HOW THIS WILL END.

      truthfully, college inn just reminds me of my childhood- to me it tastes the way broth is “supposed” to taste. i don’t think it is the most refined broth, or “the best,” but its the only one that works for me. and really, you should be buying stock.

      ps throw out the chicken bones.
