Needs More Salt

I just found this amazing video collection on YouTube. It's called Depression Cooking with Clara. Clara is a 93 year old great grandmother and in each video she prepares food the way she and her family would have during the depression. Not only is everything simple and mostly vegetarian, but she also tells stories about what life was like back then.

I love that. I don't know how many members of my family would eat that but I would. It reminds me of simpler living which I really like. I always wanted to live like Little House on the Prairie or The Waltons... minus all the religion stuff of course.

Me too! And then I remember that there was no such thing as novocaine when you went to the dentist and I'm not so sure.

Does give one reason for pause...
