What are your staples?

Apropos of the "What do you cook your new love interest" post, I gots me to thinking..

When Mr Goddess and I began dating, I went the meat and potato route... Him being a meat and potato kinda guy.. but I have gradually turned him on to all sorts of other foods...

And while we are FAR from eating dodgy TV dinners every night, my repertoire gets a bit thin after a while.

Staple meals in our house are:
Beef Strog
Bolognese/Ragu pasta sauces
Seared tuna on wilted greens
Moroccan-style shanks.
butterfly lamb roasts
curry... any sort of curry
stuff on mash (I make a mean mash)

Occasionally I';ll roast a duck, or braise a pork belly, or do something spectacular with fresh caught fish or game... but after a daily commute and a full time job, there are PLENTY of days, where it's risotto on monday. left over risotto on Tuesday and arancini made from left over risotto on Wednesday... you know what I mean??

So, Share you staples with me here, and maybe we can improve our basic "day-to-day"

Inspire me, hounders.....
