This 91 year old grandmother shows us how she made simple and delicious food during the Great Depression. Watch her make a “Poorman’s Meal.”
Potatoes and hot dogs are the main ingredients of a Poorman’s Meal. Compared to other food items, potatoes were relatively cheap during the Depression years. Therefore, potatoes were a part of any meal on a daily basis. Hot dogs added cheap protein. Add a little tomato sauce and you have an easy and hearty meal.
