There was one place that I really wanted to put this Pam to use: on my roasted potatoes. No matter how much olive oil I coat those suckers in, they invariably seem to end up stuck to my pan. And there is nothing more frustrating than that. So, this was the best place to put my Pam to the test. My skepticism, as you know, runs high with products, so my hopes for success were not high.
Well, the funny thing was....it worked. Not one of those potatoes got stuck to the pan. Can you even believe that?! I didn't even have to use a spatula! I used a dang wooden spoon. I was floored. I was excited. I was....a Pam convert?!
This is a little hard for me to swallow. Sure, I'll admit, there have been times when I wanted to cave and buy Pam and say, "Darn it all!" But I hadn't. And now, well, I sort of felt like that woman in the Prego commercial who has been buying Ragu for years and then wonders what other questionable decisions she might have made. I briefly wondered if, for instance, I should start buying marshmallow fluff again. (For the record, I did not.)
What I did decide, though, was that a little Pam every now and again won't hurt anyone. Even though I am still a bit skeptical, I believe I can trade a little nonstick action for my pride of only using olive oil.
So what about you guys out there is cyberspace? Do you use Pam or products like it? What products have you not bought in the past that you might have recently realized you like?! Tell me in the comments section below.
