Stories And Recipes Of The Great Depression Vol.II
« on: April 28, 2017, 10:43:25 PM »
Just found this in a box in the basement. It was a gift from one of my sisters and her husband the Christmas of 1995. Still in the box, had forgot about it. Very, very good read. I remember in the early 60s my mom and dad still had the habit of washing tin foil and plastic bags to be reused, where hotdishes and casseroles came from, so a pound of meat could feed 6, 7 or more mouths........so cool to read about how people made it on so little. AND all the old, simple recipes. Good reading if you come across it!!! About 330 pages.

jon,

Looking at all of the red numbers at http://www.usdebtclock.org/, you may want to hold onto that book.

Haven't come across that, but did see mention of lard and bacon grease sandwiches! I still like bacon grease instead of butter on toast sometimes or dipping toast in the hot drippings left in the pan :drool: :P
