Welcome to my cooking while quarantined blog
How to properly wash your hands:
Preparing my pantry and freezer
It’s February 27th and I’m making a shopping list for shelf-stable foods that I can pick up in NYC for the coming months. News of the corona virus has just started to come out, and I always wanted a food blog, so here we go.
Thoughts so far:
- Pumpkin/Butternut squash – basically immortal as long as you don’t make a jack o’ lantern
- Ginger root – definitely
- Dried limes – so good as a tea or in stews (also known as limu omani)
- Dried mushrooms – also basically immortal
- Dried chiles – act as the base for a lot of chilis, sauces, etc. I try to keep a few ancho, morillo, and pasilla chiles in my pantry.
- a variety of dried fruits for stews (apricots, cranberries, apple, etc – not just for trail mix!)
- kidney beans
- fava beans if I can find them – these can basically be a meal.
- weird nut flour? rice flour is nice, but I only ever use a tiny bit
- silken tofu – basically immortal and can be used like eggs
- soy milk
- bouillon cubes
- bones – perfect for broth
- frozen fish – most fish we buy in the store was frozen anyway. I’ve recently gotten into fish and have a lot of easy recipes
- ground beef/chicken/turkey – very versatile, lasts a month when frozen
- Jarred/Bottled foods
- Peanut butter
- Sauerkraut to prevent scurvy
- Lemon juice
- Chinese preserved vegetables – really change the game with stir-fries, fried rice, stews, etc
- Crushed tomatoes
- It’s been a week
- Hump-day Updates
- Buying beans at Weekend Farmer’s Markets
- Stocking up at HMart
