Try Alt+F1. That may still pop up the Ubuntu system menu although the panel is gone.

Right click the desktop -> new panel you can add the panel again and add the items you wish. You can reset all panels to default with:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel

This will kill all customization on all panels and set them to how they looked when you very first logged in.
