What I Made for Dinner: May 6, 2009

Clara's Peppers and Eggs.

A while ago, my friend Ally tipped me off to Depression Cooking with Clara, a series of YouTube videos. Clara is 94 years old and she's been cooking for most of those years, and she remembers vividly the meals her mother made their family when Clara was a girl and everyone was poor. To hear her describe it, her mom could make a feast out of next to nothing.

I tried Clara's lentils back in February, I think? And now the peppers and eggs. It was great. Very simple, easy, and fast, served on plain baguette. I served bacon on the side because, you know, this is not the Great Depression. And we really like bacon.
