nah my discussion is not about gay food LOL... did i got you there? kidding aside, i was asking my hubby what word i can use but he forgot it so i just made this thing up and not intended to upset someone. so let's talk about food here... after cleaning our cabinets today i realized that there are some few can goods that we often used. we have the following "often" used can goods and other goods at home: green beans corn chilli beans (medium and hot) mushroom soup diced tomatoes tomato paste canned fruits instant noodle soup vegetable juice now if you ransack our fridge/freezer you will always see the following: *cooked Chilli beef wonton (i made them coz i like to add them to instant noodle soup) pasta sauce chicken noodle soup (i made them too from scratch then freeze it haha!) *other cheese milk juices (lemonade and fruit punch) coke (my hubby's silent crave LOL) ketchup (lots of 'em) mustard A1 pickles butter cookie dough hotdog vegetables fruits chocolates potato chips french onion dip *frozen (no pork coz i dont eat 'em) beef chicken fish frozen buns cheese pizza meat balls burger patty ice cream (very very important LOL) this are the common often used at home, we have others but i feel they dont really belong to the word "often use". we always have chilli at home coz he can eat it as a soup or just have a plain chilli hotdog, i can also make nachos from it so it is very useful to us, very easy to prepare and last a long time specially if you freeze it. same goes with pasta sauce. i love to cook and i like the fact that i dont have to worry that i am missing an ingredient when i want to make something up. i guess i have that belief like my hubby who would rather have extra than miss one or more. we dont have much going on at home coz we are just two and a dog, i cant imagine a big family having lots of list whenever they go to grocery. anyway, what is your common food at home? do you like to cook extra and freeze them? takecare

Hello jair, We almost have the same stock except for the few things which you will not find in our fridge..I don't like chocolate and ice cream so, we don't have it..LOL! The rest are similar..Just have plenty of fresh vegetables from our garden this time which we can't handle to eat...SO, I was giving it to the neighbor often and friends.. Anyway, We cooked once in awhile and freeze it..Common food for us in the morning is cereal or oatmeal! Rice also is present 2-3 times a week! The BBQ chicken or pork like 2 times a month and pasta not often too! Salad very often for my man, I eat little only, I love best when it is cooked..LOL!

oh, now i am jealous you have a garden full of vegetables. i cant have it here coz our porch is not that big though i have jalapeno (i love mexican food) and a tomato plant (no fruit yet) and then flowers so that is all i have for now but i am hoping to have a better one once we move to a real home - still saving for it! i wish you are my neighbor so i can get some of your veggies haha! no chocolates and ice cream? you alien? LOL oh i love cereals too i sometimes have it as a dinner - weird me haha! my husband dont like salad unless it is in tostada pizza and that is all he can eat with fresh salad on it. i love caesar salad and i wish i can have it all the time but only have it outside. i can only baked our steak coz we are not allowed to have our grill here, we used to have it in the park but since it is way too hot, if i am craving for one we just eat out - easier that way LOL wish you all the best. stay happy and in love!

wah, that is a long list i don't need so many kinds of food items. i just cook whatever available in the refrigerator. my sister is taking care of it. in my house, my sister cook for my mother and herself. i cook my own meal since i am veg. so usually i just cook the available vegetables with the basic "spice" (which is salt, sugar/sweet sauce and chilli) in the simplest way . anyway, the vegetables is usually carrots, potatoes, spinach, beans, lettuces, tomatoes, tofu, and some others.

hello, hahaha, sorry to disappoint you there buddy LOL i dont usually meet a vegetarian male so i am amazed. what makes you one? are you like this since a kid or just decide to be one later? are you a vegetarian or a vegan? the only male vegetarian male person i met was my boss back in singapore and he is a strict vegan, you cant even trick him about the food coz his strictness will tell him what are the ingredients just by smelling it and that always amazes me. we always have a good laugh coz i just asked him what is inside of what i am eating hahaha! makes me miss that place. i love the restaurants in singapore and so far i feel they have the best variety of food in the world (just my opinion and taste) good night!

We do have some uniform canned goods in our food cabinet hehe. Some of them are my favorites. We have the following: Campbells Soups - different flavors Mushrooms Sardines Corned Beef Lychees Fruit cocktail Condensed Milk Evaporated Milk Luncheon Meat Spam Liver Spread Hmmm. I cannot think of the others at the moment hehe. I like having canned goods at home, when I am hungry and feel lazy to cook I just get some from there hehe.
