Do you ever stop and think how much we have as a country?
Sometimes we have so much that we are not always grateful for what we have.
I was thinking about the Great Depression the other day and found a heart warming video on what Christmas was like during that time.
How little they had but so grateful for that little.
Here is the video:
Here are some videos on how they ate. I know that some ate even less than this. Clara, below, was fortunate to have what she did. I enjoy the stories she shares of the Great Depression while she cooks.
Clara, who was in her 90's in these videos, wrote a sweet book before she passed away. It was called Clara's Kitchen: Wisdom, Memories, and Recipes from the Great Depression.
"Clara gives readers practical advice on cooking nourishing meals for less. Using lessons she learned during the Great Depression, she writes, for instance, about how to conserve electricity when cooking and how you can stretch a pot of pasta with a handful of lentils. She reminisces about her youth and writes with love about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Clara's Kitchen takes readers back to a simpler, if not more difficult time, and gives everyone what they need right now: hope for the future and a nice dish of warm pasta from everyone's favorite grandmother, Clara Cannuciari, a woman who knows what's really important in life."
You can find her book HERE.
I hope you enjoy these videos!
