Just Heat It 'n' Eat It!: Convenience Foods of the '40s - '60sby Adeena Sussman
Quick and easy � if not exactly haute cuisine � convenience foods in those brightly colored packages started dazzling housewives during the 1940s. From TV dinners and Jiffy-Pop to Jell-O and Velveeta, these precursors to fast food were welcomed by �too-busy-to-cook� women as another indispensable �mother�s little helper� that freed them from kitchen drudgery. Just Heat It �n� Eat It surveys these fascinating concoctions that became staples of millions of American homes � and remain so today � along with the post-war, space-age culture that created them.
