"The Depression was bad."
|Helena Handbasket |
Her can of peas is very clearly and simply labeled. I like this woman's style.
See this isn't nearly as bad as the Great Depression, so can the media stop making that comparison.
(Todays market = Great Depression) =( __________ = Hitler)
I'm talking to the man in the mirror.

That pan looks like she's had it since the Depression. Good on Clara, though. I hope at least these times will teach people a little self-denial and cause them to be less spoiled.
I'm Guessing that future episodes will be:
Episode 2: "Pasta with Garlic"
Episode 3: "Pasta with Beans"
Episode 4: "Moonshine Whiskey"
is it me or does this not seem that frugal to me?
maybe im just broke...or frugal.
To be fair, the tomato sauce and grated cheese are optional luxuries. Everything else is pretty frugal (you can pocket the salt and pepper at a fast food joint). A sack of onions, sack of potatoes, and a big bag of pasta would make a dozen meals for a few bucks. Cheap pasta is the key.

If you have relatives old enough to remember the Depression and WW2, go visit them right now and have them tell you stories, or you'll regret it when they keel over.
I found this interesting for many reasons. Here are two of them:
(1) I'm interested in American history.
(2) I'm cooking on a budget. Her recipes are cheap to make.
Superb. I want to see more.
My grandma makes a mean pasta e fagioli. They immigrated after the depression but they were still poor as dirt.

The music at the end, which pop song uses its opening bars as the hook?
Oh god, this is going to drive me mad.
