I was very lucky to have been around two ladies that was around that hard time the great depression they were both Born in 1914 I have so many recipes that they wrote down there kids did not want it so I have all of the recipe and so many real story's God bless you
Awesome video. I am building an off grid log cabin and interested in this sort of stuff so ran into this video. I will be posting my build on my channel and be cooking some poor man's meal. Incredible lady... thanks for sharing.
When I was a kid I would have given anything to have that ‘poor mans meal’. One of the worst experiences I had for food was a school lunch that consisted of flattest tasting pancakes ever spread with shortening, salt, and pepper. That should give you a hint of what other food was like at home. I ate with my mouth over the lunch bag because I didn’t want anyone to see what I was eating. It was bad enough that they could see the clothes I had to wear.
Should I tell my husband I've been making him "Poorman's Meal"? What I do is a little different -- Keilbasa instead of hot dogs and they are cooked separately and served to the side of the potatoes (red potatoes). I don't put water in, either. It's a nice, cheap meal, if not terribly healthy.
Did she say she had to quit high school because she didn't have socks to wear? I'm not trying to be mean when I say that seems like doable fix. For instance, she could make a few pairs out of an old T-shirt or sweater even. If she could only make three pair she could wash them by hand and reuse them each week. My grandmother is the same age and shares similar stories and I know she wouldn't have let not being able to afford socks keep her from going to school. Maybe I am missing understanding something because she doesn't seem like the type to give up easily.
That's a poor mans meal? looks tasty! today a middle class meal is 35 cent Ramen Noodles lol. Potatoes are very good for you. In Ireland its a main stable. Many Irish died during the Potato Famine that wiped out most potato crops to a fungus.
My dad, who was born in 1909, used to cook this for us. He only cooked occasionally, but it seems like everything he cooked was either white potatoes, yams or BBQ ribs. I loved his candied yams so much.
The story of the neighbor taking Clara's vegetables reminded me of when one of our elderly neighbors opened our gate to take leaves from a medicinal plant we had growing in a flower pot. My dad was so angry because just like Clara said, he wouldn't mind giving her the leaves if she had asked for them, but she didn't. She waited until everyone had gone to work or school and just waltzed in. She did it twice, second time he caught her. To add insult to injury, she unwittingly killed the plant because she removed every last leaf from it in the middle of summer. It couldn't transpire or do photosynthesis, so it died.
Now my dad has only decorative plants near the gate, any food and medicinal plant he now keeps in the backyard away from any neighbors including her. He said that he understands necessity, he grew up in the 50s with 10 siblings and a working single mother, he knows how it is to go without food, but all that hospitality goes out the window when people enter our property without permission. Not even because she was elderly she got a pass, he said "She's old enough to know right from wrong, and taking things that don't belong to you without asking is wrong".
What a beautiful soul she was ! It broke my heart when I found out that had passed . Dear Lord bless her family and loved ones. She was a special soul that touched the hearts of many. Why on earth can’t we have love for each other like this ? It’s a shame .
My grandmother passed in 1971. Those old folks sure new there stuff. They new how to survive the hard times not like kids these days who can't live with out a 800.00 cell phone or a 500.00 play station. Shame on us for not learning from our grand parents. God bless them all.
omg, I watched this video several times and now she's gone? she left such a lasting impression on me she reminded me of all the hard times my mom went through and we ate like that too some of those same recipes but it was the best tasting every time ... i often watch this video i hope its never taken down ..R. I. P. Clara and thank you for such a wonderful video
You definitely are a sweetie pie an Melanie Jo said. I have to say that about 15 years ago, and I'm 67 now, I was on my own and working at a hospital here in San Antonio, TX and paying rent. I was barely getting by and I lived on potatoes with eggs, onions, and bell pepper fried in oil just like yours. I would buy eggs in a 24 pack along with the makings. Sometimes I would buy a big bag of frozen talapia and fry them whole in oil with bacon grease. My Mom lived through the depression era and she would tell me stories about what they went through. I hope to see more of you and I'm praying you make it to over 100.
yall can't confess yall there to get delivered, ok I can see the dead can't be delivered look at yall action talking about this lady having depression. ??? yall got to be crazy and not caring about yourself and others .
President Hoover was president during that time never did anything for people like her than President Roosevelt came in and so much changed like soup kitchens ect. Thank god we live in these days 🤗 Cool Lady 😍
This warmed my soul. My great-grandmother lived through the depression and I remember stories from her and my grandmother, her daughter. They were both the best cooks and could make a delicious dishes with very little and the simplest ingredients. You’re a treasure Ms. Clara ❤️
My mother told us that during the depression how they went out to do chores and all the chickens were gone. All the neighbors' chickens were gone too. The culprits were caught and they were wearing suits and the women wore high heels and a fur coat. They were from Chicago which was a 4 hour drive away at the time.
That's not being touchy... she was a moron to accuse you of that.
You were right to teach her you weren't your neighbors maid service. Some people manipulate others constantly to get what they want in the world. Users, they are.
my father was born 1930 on a farm, in south GA. He said if they did not grow it they did not have it. He said he took a biscuit cut it open put a fryed egg in it for lunch at school, for chrismas one year he got a orange another time a little car . His mother died when he was 10.It was not a easy life.
OH what a sweet lady. I wish I would have had a grandma like her. Anyway, I have old recipes passed down to me by my mother, and found some really old cookbooks. You can't beat those tried and true recipes!! I really don't care for the updated recipes. I will try to find her cookbooks. I think they would be real treasures. I'm so sorry I didn't find these videos sooner. God rest her soul.
They had no choice.... right now, in America, we do. Too bad they didn't know to just well scrub the potatoes and leave the nutritious skins on. I wonder if the hot dogs, back then, were as horribly full of chemicals as they are now. I wasn't in the Depression era, but we weren't well off, had to know how to eat frugal. Having a garden is just smart. We always had one. Even if you don't have land, you can grow edibles in flower beds and containers. There are books and youtube videos, and internet to show you how. But people are spoiled, lazy, and clueless now. I always had a garden and I baked my own bread....and I taught my kids.

Консультация юриста по уголовным делам помогает разрешать очень серьезные, можно сказать судьбоносные вопросы, поэтому должна оказываться только высококвалифицированными профессионалами в уголовно-правовой сфере.
Уголовный процесс отличается от гражданского тем, что защитником по такому делу может выступать только юрист обладающий статусом адвоката, т.е. сдавший квалификационный экзамен и являющийся членом адвокатской палаты. Юрист не имеющий соответствующего статуса лишен возможности набрать должный для таких дел уровень опыта, а значит сотрудничество с ним вряд ли принесет положительный результат.
Поэтому наиболее рациональным решением в таких вопросах будет консультация адвоката по уголовным делам. В каталоге юристов нашего сайта Вы сможете найти таких специалистов, обращайте внимание на отзывы и рейтинг.
