"The Depression was bad."
yourdeadgirlfriend
I totally laughed at that too more than I should have.

Helena Handbasket
Her can of peas is very clearly and simply labeled. I like this woman's style.
Johnny Madhouse
She probably laid those peas away herself.

Also, she's 91? She doesn't look that old.

rapsnacks
I hope I can wield knives at 91.

Spike Jonez
She probably used the coupons and wanted to know what she had in the can.

Also, I hope I can still wield knives at 91, but for rather different reasons.

Cena_mark
See this isn't nearly as bad as the Great Depression, so can the media stop making that comparison.

(Todays market = Great Depression) =( __________ = Hitler)

Reading analysis lesson for Cena #1,021: The "media" are not calling it the Great Depression. "They" are, quite correctly, saying that there has not been a crisis as bad as this since the Great Depression, and in general and quite appropriately contrast the current political climate with that of the Great Depression era; George Bush after all has a great deal in common with the malfeasant crony Republican presidents that led up to the last economy that was this contracted, and Obama routinely equates himself with FDR.

TeenerTot
Aw, Cena, don't politicize this video. Take it for what it is--a lesson in living simply. If you must rail on about something, rant about how our unbridled consumerism has left us sad and flabby.
I love you, Clara!

Rodents of Unusual Size
Reading the remarks by Cena_mark and baleen reminds me of those Goofus and Gallant cartoons. Oh, Cena why must you hate Clara? She just made dinner. Why do you hate dinner?

baleen

I'm talking to the man in the mirror.

HURF BLURF DUH
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.
Comatose2
I'm Guessing that future episodes will be:
Episode 2: "Pasta with Garlic"
Episode 3: "Pasta with Beans"
Episode 4: "Moonshine Whiskey"
heyitslozeau
is it me or does this not seem that frugal to me?

maybe im just broke...or frugal.




Syd Midnight
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.

RockBolt
This is sadly more elaborate than most of what I subsisted on in college, but I think that was more laziness than budget

KnowFuture
Yeah the recipe, like a lot of broke food, is basically a few core ingredients (in this case peas n' pasta) plus whatever else you happen to have in your kitchen at the time that might be good in there.

Syd Midnight
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.
Nikon
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.
Wytze!
Superb. I want to see more.
pastorofmuppets
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.
