What ingredients do you always reach for?

What spices and sauces do you use over and over again?

Swampy's basic spice list:

olive oil
fish sauce
black bean sauce
sesame oil
dried hot peppers
lime juice
rice vinegar
cumin seed


This isn't the exhaustive list, but most of the food Swampy makes has two or three of these ingredients, he is constantly reaching for them.

What about you? What do you find goes with everything?

olive oil
balsamic vinegar
crushed red pepper flakes
montreal steak seasoning
garlic salt
fresh garlic
fresh basil
fresh rosemary (I have this in my yard)

My list is probably longer also, but these are my staples for sure.  I use a lot of the ones on your list too, Swampy.
