The book contains excerpts from the Good Housekeeping Magazine which was allowed to continue publishing despite the rationing of paper during the war years. These were hard times. Times that I would not like to live in but also times where we can learn to appreciate the small things. It contained much useful information for women trying to manage the household giving ideas on meal planning with quantities to buy for two people. How to plan for and use leftovers. It gave recipes for dinner, soups, preserves and even some for managing without milk. Things I think many people could put to good use today without being wasteful. Ooops....there's the thrifty side of me showing. hehe!
Now I think I might have to try this! ; ) hehehe!
So, this is just one of the books I have been reading lately. What are you currently reading?
