Default Must have on hand ingredients

This is intended to be a living thread. Please add as you think of new stuff.

I always have the following on hand. (Skipping obvious like milk eggs salt black pepper...)

Chicken Stock/Broth
Canned tomato
Fresh Garlic
Olive oil
saltines
Beer
Bourbon
Genoa Salami
Italian Sausage (Hot)

I will add as I think of new stuff or find new stuff I should have on hand all the time. OK, I know Beer and booze are optional but I have to have standards.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Bacon - I keep it in the freezer and use it mainly for seasoning peas and such or for BLT's.

All kinds of dry pasta, canned tomato products, rice, Knorr's sauce mixes

I just recently started keeping powdered milk on hand, for cooking only.

Onions, I can't cook without them .

Ramen noodles, I can't live without them .
