depression potatoes, grades, bb

there is this 90+ year old lady named clara who has a cookbook
and video online
she talks about the depression and how they use to cook

my wife she and i watched her on cbs news one night as she
cooked her depression potatoes for the interviewer and talked
about her life during the depression

she has several videos on you tube
and has a cookbook

the recipe for depression potatoes is one we use frequently
back in the day she used everything organic as that was the
only choice available

we either have to grow our stuff organically or go out of
our way to find organic potatoes and onions

our usual recipe is
chopped up organic potatoes from our garden
chopped up organic onions from our garden
extra virgin olive oil in a skillet
instead of wieners she used we used turkey without
seasoned to taste with sea salt and black pepper
we cook this on the top of the stove in a skillet
stirring frequently until taters are well done

for some reason the flavors are so good
maybe because they are depression potatoes
this was our meal last night
thanks clara
one of our favorite meals

now obama released his birth certificate as did i release mine
his was ok but mine had surprises

now they whoever they are want his grades released
lets see should i release mine also
first round of college was all fs
did not attend classes and dropped out

first trimester in 4 year college my junior year
i made a d, c, b
thought i was done for after that

did graduate with an a average, went to medical school,
and did a family medicine residency, and practiced
medicine for 30 years

guess none of that grade stuff really matters does it
they still called me doctor every day for 30 years and
they call obama president obama every day

heat are on a roll
they look like they are the champs
celtics looking old
thunder came back
now they are even
can roses ankle hold up if not they are done for
mavs may have the lakers number now

  1. My Gran used to make potatoes with onion, a little sausage cooked in olive oil and then right before she served it, she would but shredded cheddar cheese over it. I didn't realize it came from the depression but it is one of our favorite cold weather meals along with Shepherds Pie.
    Thanks for the video link!!!!

  2. I make something similar, brown 96/4 ground beef, add flour then water to make gravy, cubed potatoes, onions and bell pepper. Keep covered with water and simmer until potatoes are cooked. Serve on slice of bread. Call it hash. We will try with hot dogs. Good video.

  3. Throw in some of your tomats and I am there for supper!

  4. My Mom fixed this but added okra too..yummy.

  5. When you stand back and look at the video- and all the comments u realize how depression is an understatement - too many depressing aspects. Good luck with the menu.

  6. thanks to all above for their comments
    will try adding okra next time and maybe
    tomatoes and sprinkle with cheese
    yum yum
