You know, as I was writing this post, I remembered that you have talked a lot about mise en place (probably not spelled right) and I've been doing that, especially when making breads and other things that have a number of ingredients so I don't forget anything. Hadn't thought of doing it to keep from having to touch stuff with bloody hands - I'll be doing this from now on. Thanks, Katie.

Yes, Fisher's Mom, you spelled it correctly and it's the best way to ensure ingredients are in the exact quantities and in place as they are to be added. You are sharp to have picked up on my reference to this technique.

I have been in the habit of practicing mise en place so long, I don't think I could cook any other way.

I like the idea of the disposables. They would be convenient for traveling, camping, anytime you need to pack up and take these things with you. It cuts down on weight and size. But I still prefer these grinders that I got at Crate and Barrel... they are glass and stainless.... sea salt in one, peppercorns in the other with a cap on each. They work awesomely for me (unlike others I have bought in the past) and have been refilled and used a long time. $14.95 each.

I put a grinder of the garlic pepper in my lunch box to liven up salads, cottage cheese, etc. Like other folks have mentioned they are great for picnics or potlucks.
