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?

Week 34 - A Place For Convenience Foods

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert December 20, 2010

Traveling via air is wrought with convenience stops from check-in to landing, whether it’s coffee kiosks, coolers filled with pre-wrapped sandwiches, fast food joints, or the tiny (and I mean tiny) bags of pretzels you get on the airplane.

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert November 10, 2010

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert October 11, 2010
