Out with the old, in with the...better

The Minimalist, Mark Bittman, has a good article in today's New York Times Dining Section about stocking your pantry with ingredients to help you cook quickly (and also tossing ingredients that may be not quite good enough). I especially like his recommendation to buy tomato paste in a tube, not a can. I've switched over a few years ago and love that it keeps so well and that I can roll up the tube like toothpaste to get every last bit. However, I don't think I'll be trashing my beloved, non-caloric PAM anytime soon, additives or no.

Take away what you can use and ignore anything you deem too onerous.
