Happy Blogiversary to Me (belated)
Almost slipped my mind that two years ago yesterday I started this blog. Why? I don't know. I had been posting comments on a couple of blogs and the guys there (Blah3 in particular) encouraged me to start my own. But I must say I much prefer to comb other blogs and leave a little snark here or there like a hit and run driver. I also like to research current topics to find those overlooked tidbits that MSM never seems to bring out in the open. So sorry if you missed the party. It wasn't much but the cat had fun.
Depression era cooking
I remember surviving the recession of the early eighties and was just thinking how we made it through. About all we had at that time was a large bag of flour and those big blocks of government cheese. So what do you make that's balanced. Pizza of course! With a large jar of tomato sauce and whatever left over veggies or meat it makes a very balanced diet and by making it yourself it has less in the way of fat (except the cheese) and salt. So that's one of the things we live off of for several months. Needless to say I couldn't eat pizza for a long time after that. But that got me to thinking about other meals for surviving the depression. Any favorite poor boy receipes you'd care to add just leave them in the comments. Remember we're all in this together.
