I lovvvvve always having Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt. Tam triple cream cheese on hand. I always have a round of it in my fridge, and when I’m low, I order more online! I love keeping all sorts of cheeses and honey on hand – then if you find yourself with a bag of tortilla chips in the pantry (nachos!), some stale bread or even just an apple, you can make something great! Apples and cheese drizzled with honey, tortilla chips on a baking sheet layered with random cheese, crumbled ham or bacon. So much can be done with the corners of your fridge and pantry!
Meal wise, as long as you have frozen chicken breast on hand, you can conquer the world.
