I tend to eat low-carb and avoid wheat, so I have stopped having pasta, cous cous etc in the cupboard. I have tinned beans of various sorts, great for bulking out any stew, also for making veggie burgers. I use tinned tomatoes for loads of dishes, also oats which I often grind to use instead of wheat flour or for thickening soups and casseroles. Stock cubes are also essential since I don't make my own stock, I use them to add flavour to lots of meals.

Frog Ranch Medium spiced salsa! I put a couple of tablespoons of that in with my eggs in the morning, and my mouth is happy all day.
I actually just looked at my pantry this morning, seeing what I am short on, what I have an abundance of... I tend to stock up on canned broth, cream of stuff soup, canned fruits, cannded veggies, canned tomatoes, beans of all sorts, barley, rice, other grains, condiments. I think I'd be OK if we had a power outage for a couple weeks. Granted, we'd have to eat out of the freezer for a while but it is stocked with homemade stocks, chicken, home-frozen tomato sauce, soups and cassaroles.

I cook pretty extensively so it's hard for me to narrow it down. I have a whole cabinet full of spices/seasonings, a whole drawer in the fridge with lots of different cheeses, and a walk-in pantry that has lots of different oils, vinegars, sauces, etc. But, the things I seem to use on a weekly basis are extra-virgin olive oil, low-sodium chicken broth, canned diced tomatoes, and pre-shredded mozzarella cheese (not low fat, blech). For snacks/breakfast I have Kellogg's Fiber Plus bars in peanut butter chocolate flavor, apples, Precious stringsters string cheese, Yoplait yogurt in either key lime or lemon cream pie flavor, and triple berry newton cookies.
eggs, cottage cheese, hummus, beans of all sorts, oatmeal, salad, wraps, yogurt, and a protein powder!!!!
