Ok, I don't know how many of you out there run into this issue, but I thought I would ask. I live alone &amp; mainly just keep basic foods in the house for myself. Since I'm working and in school, I keep a supply of food at work. In the house I mostly just keep my low protein bread &amp; pastas, some fresh produce and some frozen vegetables around on a regular basis. Of course, I have baking supplies &amp; spices. I enjoy cooking for others, but usually just buy the higher protein ingredients for the specific meal before I prepare it. However, I frequently run into problems serving food to last minute and overnight guests. I am never sure what to keep in the house that might be used to serve non-PKUers. I have a friend visiting from out of state for the weekend, and just realized I don't have anything in the house for her to eat. I don't like going food shopping in advance because I never know what the guest will eat &amp; don't want to waste $$ on foods that won't be eaten. I've actually run into that problem a few times this month alone because I've had a few different people staying with me. I do have a few things that I keep on hand for my boyfriend -- a few chicken breasts, burgers, ribs, sausage, pancake mix, cereal, eggs, a frozen pizza, a couple boxes of mac &amp; cheese. However, most of my friends are pretty into health foods and aren't the big "meat and potato" eaters. Does anyone have suggestions for things that keep well &amp; won't go bad that can be whipped up last minute for unplanned guests? Looking for a few ideas here.
