Depression Cooking with Clara....How Sweet!

I am a bit of a You Tube fan. Whatever you want to know how to do, you can find someone on youtube demonstrating it. I found a bunch of videos of people demonstrating how to use the netti pot. Sam and I spent some time on failblog a while back laughing until we cried. Check out, we must have watched in three or four times. I'm not sure how I happened upon Clara, but she is so cute and no nonsense. I wanted to share because I think you will all enjoy her and it would really add to a homeschool study of the depression.
"91 year old cook and great grandmother, Clara, recounts her childhood during the Great Depression as she prepares meals from the era. Learn how to make simple yet delicious dishes while listening to stories from the Depression."
I introduced her to the kids by getting the ingredents for "Poor Man's Meal". We watched the video, which got raving reviews of how good they thought the meal would be. Then I whip out the ingredents so we could make it together. I am such a cool mom! It was extra awesome, because it had hotdogs, which we never have. No they weren't tufu dogs, they were turkey dogs. We had so much fun.

Haden didn't feel well and needed some extra cuddles. This is one of the last times he will go in the wrap. :(

    You'll have to show me how to use your wrap before y'all head off. Ya know, a Mama can never have too many.........


Thank you for taking a moment to share your thoughts with me.
