The Staple – Olive Oil

If there’s one thing you should always have on hand in mass quantities, it’s olive oil. Of course, I’m bias because many of Mom’s recipes start with this fruit of the gods, but, trust me, it’s essential.

I know one TV personality who has popularized the acronym EVOO. As much as I like her, the word is like poison to my ears. It’s four freakin’ syllables and sounds like a DNA sequence. Can’t we just call it oil?

Anyway, when I’m out of olive oil, I don’t mess around. I go to Costco, get a gallon (like I did today) and use it to refill a smaller dispenser. Believe me, you don’t ever want to run out of olive oil. That’s just a bad scene.

Oh, and if your excuse for not having olive oil is that the pan is non-stick and doesn’t need it, then you’re technically right; but you’re no fun.
