Depression Era Cooking

Where my mother was raised, they ate potatoes, had re-constituted dehydrated milk, and relied on the government and charities to get by.  She would get 1 pair of shoes for the entire year, her clothes became the hand - me - downs for her younger sisters.

My dad was in overalls through most of his childhood, and since he was raised on a farm, they grew what they ate.
