• A Man's Kitchen - Essential Ingredients

    Attachment 105If you don't have this stuff, you're screwed Just like the Equipment List, this is a compilation of must-have and nice-to-have stuff. Print this out, take it with you, and track this stuff down like the hunter-gatherer that you are. Yes, I know, some of these items will sound stupidly obvious, but we've got to start somewhere, aside from the normal assortment of fruits, veggies, meats, and such. Once you have these essential items at your disposal, you'll find whipping up meals a cinch. Oh crap, I think I just sounded like Martha Stewart.
    Uh, better yet, just think of it as a complete auto parts store on hand for an engine rebuild or any major work on your truck. Nice recovery, eh?
