My cardiologist kicked me off of peanut oil and walnut oil. Told me to put them on the 'bad for my heart' list. And i was just figuring out how to use walnut oil for cooking.

Gotta be careful with olive oil when pan-frying or sauteeing. I'll use regular olive oil (not EVOO) for some sauteeing, but frying or stir frying I'll use peanut oil. It takes the high heat without smoking.

EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

I use it all the time, mostly in the place of butter.

Just what is an EVOO? I never heard of it before last Saturday, and now have seen it mentioned twice in just a few days. Can someone enlighten me?

I pretty much have what's already been mentioned. But I do have about six 200ml bottles of various infused EVOO's and six infused aged vinegars. I haven't used the regular EVOO since I started buying the different infused oils.

FYI---for those of us with heart conditions, my cardiologist told me that until further notice, NO more Vegetable or Peanut cooking oils/shortenings; including foods containing them. Evidently there's some research coming out that states these two oils/fats, are long term trouble! I know they are the cheapies, but adding to your heart trouble ain't worth the savings.

This is a good idea. My husband is going on a hunting trip for about four days. Will be a good time to go through the cupboard and make my list for shopping.

For grains, I always have lots of quinoa, cous cous, whole grain flour, oats, pasta and rice. And canned goods: beans, tomatoes, salmon, tuna, and some low sodium, low calorie soups!

I do the list thing with my dried spices. I was having a hard time keeping everything organized (ie the packages were flying all over the cupboard!) and knowing how long it had been open for and so on, so I gathered them all up, got rid of the old ones, and then put the ones I was keeping in a large tupperware container. I wrote on the lid in erasable marker just what was in the container, and when it was opened. I've found that's helped a lot, especially by not having half-full packages of spices floating around everywhere - they just do not stack nicely on their own!

If I choose to not do anything differently today, tomorrow is going to be exactly the same as yesterday.

Well, I guess the list will only work with people who live alone or are the only ones who cook! LoL

I can't even get my husband to tell me when he opens the last of anything, let alone cross off a list. I go to the closet to get another jar of peanut butter and it's....GONE! What is it with men?

My pantry is pretty well stocked with the basics and I regularly check the dates on them and if I find any outdated, I toss them. That rarely happens tho. I think if a person should make a list of the pantry items and posts it inside a cupboard door and cross it off as you use it. Maybe buy a replacement if you use it often. Now that winter is approaching I buy things I think I might need when the cold winds blow with snow and ice and I can't get out. I like to be prepared.

I keep several kinds of pasta and grains (kasha, different kinds of rice, barley, quinoa), karo syrup, molasses, honey, fish sauce (many different sauces actually), 10 or more kinds of dried beans and peas, evap milk, canned tomatoes, boxed stocks, I could go on. My problem with some of it is that I use it (like molasses) so seldom that I forget I have it and end up buying another.

This might have been discussed before I joined but I didn't see it in the immediate archives so thought I wld give it a try.

What are a few of the pantry/always have to have on hand ingredients that you have in your cupboards or frig?

I always have diced tomatoes (can), rice, soy sauce, oils, panko bread crumbs.

Right now my pantry is full of things that I bought to make recipes with and never used. I need to get rid of all that stuff!
