Working from home: Ham or cheese?

August 5, 2009


I used to work at home all the time. I had an office in our basement and a second kitchen down there where Amy, Sabrina and I used to develop recipes and do our consulting work. Working at home had advantages in that it saved commuting time but, as you can see from the photo above, working at home also means contending with your family 24/7.

That’s my husband Martin tormenting me while I try to take a picture of a yellow bean salad that I thought was particularly pretty. Is he more of a ham or just delivering as much cheese as he can? Maybe both?

I can enjoy little interruptions like this one now that most of my professional food activities happen off-site (in fact, I laughed like crazy after he pulled this stunt) but when I worked at home this kind of thing would have driven me crazy!

What about you? Do you work at home or leave the house every day for another destination?


How to get a man’s attention

According to this British gravy mix commercial, the stomach route works pretty well then, too!
