That "what to stock your pantry with" topic

Kate, you probably know this already so apologies if I'm saying something redundant, but try to get at least one kind of EVOO. For me, the default type is Italian, but sometimes I'll go out on a limb and get Greek (which to me, has a more full-bodied and deeper flavor profile than Italian).

My preferences (in order of rank); yours and others may vary:

1. Italian

2. Greek

3. Spanish

4. Domestic American

Soba

I'm in New Bedford Massachusetts.  This is near the cape and Rhode Island.  There is a wonderful produce and specialty food store called Sid Wainer and Son around here somewhere, but I don't know how to get there yet ;)  I've been at Johnson and Wales in RI since September and moved in with my boyfriend last month.  So I'm pretty new around here.

Kate:

You live in New Behfah, not New Bedford. Since it's a tad difficult to give you directions when I don't know where you live I suggest you try this to get to Sid Wainer. Take I-195 (that's the road you took when you came from Providence) to either the Ashley Blvd or Acushnet Ave (Route 18) North exit. Proceed North on one of these streets to Bullard St. Hang a left on Bullard and follow it to Purchase St. The store is at 2301 Purchase St. which should be near the intersection. I know nothing about the store except where it is and I haven't been near Buzzards Bay since Christ was a child, so good luck.

As for what you should put in your pantry, what do you like to make?

Ah yes good old New Behfah. Your directions sound excellent. Thanks! I am near 140--perhaps you can refresh my memory on how to get to 195 from there?

As for what I like to cook--I never get tired of pasta, boneless chicken breasts, steak if it's good, chili, and soups... That's just the tip of the iceberg. Maybe it's better to ask what I *don't* like--hmm, that's a pretty short list, so maybe not. I'm willing to try anything, but I guess I'm looking for more exotic dishes--Indian, Chinese, stuff like that. Stuff I can do, but lack the authentic ingredients.

Hmmm...I believe that Route 140 and I-195 intersect. But I can't tell you which direction to go in on 140 to get to 195.
