I'm making her Poorman's Meal right now. Instead of regular hot dogs, I used smoked sausage links. I may add some garlic powder or Adobo seasoning just to spruce it up a little.

That's a great video. I remember my dad making something similar only he used ketchup and bologna instead of tomato and hot dogs. It is really good. Watching her with that knife makes me cringe though.

You just gotta to love this old lady, Great Videos and I like to stories she tells why making the food. I have made the Poormans Meal before, but I use less salt and oil then she uses in here recipes.

Both my grandma's came from Yugoslavia. Both of them made something called muchnick (sp?), it's some kind of a porridge, one made it sweet and the other savory.
My grandma that ended up in the US made a depression dish (that's what she called it). Fry up some bread cubes in butter until toasty and put in a bowl. Cook up some noodles, drain, put in the same bowl. Scramble some eggs (which were plentiful when nothing else was plentiful) and put in the bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and serve (sometimes with ketchup). I grew up eating that when times were tough. I liked it. ~Bliss

My father was born at the height of the Depression and my grandmother use to tell us some stories that would make your head spin. And to think families were much larger at that time. My grandmother came from a family of 5 and my grandfather came from a family of 12. And back then you didn't complain about what mom served for dinner. You were lucky to have food on the table and if you did brave to say anything you would be wearing your eyes in the back of your head for at least a week.

I love simple cooking. Sometimes the plainer(is that even a word?) the better.
