Our economic times call for recipes and hints that help families get through and still put a healthy and delicious dinner onto the table, especially larger families.
Some of the following recipes come from my grandmothers handwritten notes from during the war. My grandmother would regularly have not only her family of seven to feed but her three sisters families, who each had five members as well. With only three occupants in the house earning an income, she became very adept at cooking filling, good, delicious healthy meals for very low cost and using many basic ingredients and being able to use the leftovers from the night before (if any) so that there were no wastage, or fresh vegetables from the garden.
Some of the other recipes are specifically for using up the leftovers and still getting a full meal for seven that I have developed over the years.
