Kitchen Resolutions

If you haven't already, you should read Mark Bittman's article in the New York Times today regarding keeping old stuff, bad habits, unncessary purchases and how to just generally have a happier kitchen and pantry. I have been guilty of many of the offenses Mr. Bittman detailed, and in fact, the Chef just made soup with some old ass dried beans that apparently do NOT last forever and became mealy little buggers swimming in our bowls.

You can read the article here.

I too, could stand for a good pantry cleaning. I did redo all twelve kitchen drawers on Jan. 2, but I haven't tackled cupboards yet.

I have much to say on the subject of Mark Bittman. I am currently reading his newest book, Food Matters. Our household has an—at-best—ambivalent relationship with his work.

I hesitate to think how old some of my spices are....I guess it's time to purge.
