What to buy on the Ultimate Grocery Trip?

The end of my husband's deployment is fast approaching, hooray! As part of my prepping for his return, I want to fill the fridge/pantry with some of the staples that he would want to cook with that I haven't had on hand while he was away.
Our cooking styles are very different. I'm a very basic comfort foods/meat-and-potatoes cook, and he opts for much more complicated fare requiring longer lists of ingredients and whatnots. While I like to cook, he LOVES to cook and is truly looking forward to being able to cook for himself again. AND SO, if he's so inclined, I want him to be able to come home and make almost anything his little heart desires for the first week or so without having to run out to the grocery store every time we need an ingredient.
So AskMe, what are your favorite ingredients? What foodstuffs do you always have on hand for a variety of different meals? Anything you can recommend is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, friends!
