Food essentials!

So everyone needs food and there are some things you need to buy and keep in your cupboard for many reasons. You may need things that are essential for certain recipes and you may need stuff for when money is tight and you just need to eat. These are things that I think everyone needs in their kitchen cupboards but I must stress not everyone will agree with everything I put but this is just my opinion on what's essential.

1. Instant noodles - the ones from oriental shops taste the best and are only about 30p 
2. Baked beans - because there will be a week at some point in the year when you can't afford fresh food :P
3. Eggs - good for making simple dinners like omelettes or good hangover food like scrambled eggs
4. Soy sauce - adds flavour to a lot of recipes
5. Stock cubes
6. Pasta- quick to cook and there are loads of different things to put with it
7. Chopped tomatoes
8. Garlic
9. Ketchup
10. Salt and pepper
11. Spices and herbs - e.g. Chilli powder, paprika, basil, oregano etc
12. Tea/coffee/hot chocolate 
13. Cereal
14. Things for toast- like jam or Nutella
15. Bread - freeze half the loaf so it doesn't go mouldy 
16. Tuna
17. Ready made sauces- for example curry pastes, pasta bake sauces or sweet and sour sauce
18. Cereal
19. Oil
20. tomato puree
21. Worcester sauce
22. This last one is something I use a lot in my cooking but its not necessarily essential - Sweet chilli sauce
