WWGD...What Would Grandma Do?


My Grandma could stretch a meal! It was seldom fancy, but it was simple, hearty, filling...

These are skills I need to remember and to learn.

For a rambly post as I remember some kitchen lessons learned from my Grandma's Great Depression, WW2, and other years of simple living, you can find that and my attempts to duplicate one of our favorite meals of hers at Women Not Dabbling in Normal today.

Hope you can make it there...have a great day, and let me know how you stretch your favorite meals!

So interesting!

I add more lentils and another carrot to soups, stews etc. With salad's I'll add more tomatoes or cucumbers etc. It's amazing what a little extra does!
