We Love You Grandma Clara!

Lately, I have been feeling so appreciative that I have lived long enough to finally appreciate the wisdom of my Italian Grandmother and her excessively frugal ways. I found this sweet series of YouTube videos today and had to share. This are the type of meals my Grandma would cook us. She would call them "Poverty Meals."

In Grandma Clara's videos, she says that they ate tons of potatoes or pasta with veggies. It was cheap, filled the hungry tummies and was healthy. They ate meat very sparingly only on special occasions. No wonder she's lived to be a very spunky 93, and my Italian Grandmother is now 94! It's the rich, processed American diet that puts us in our graves early. Amen to grandmothers everywhere who are sharing their wisdom with us so we can pass it on to our children and grandchildren.
