Week 44 - T-minus 8 Weeks And Counting

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert February 22, 2011

And so it went. We didn’t starve nor did we eat particularly well. I’d say I actually had two high points in the week, which to me are kind of like the yin and yang of food cravings.

Week 39 - An Inconvenient Pantry (Part 2: Condiment Whore)

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert January 19, 2011

I had to ask some of the same questions of myself when I started this project, like is a condiment a “food” or is it a “seasoning?” Am I going to make my own mayonnaise and barbeque sauce and ketchup? Can you even make your own mustard?
