“Ghetto Mac” it’s where you make some pasta and add in whatever you can find in the fridge or cabinets. Cheese, lunch meat, spices, etc. No two meals were ever the same.”

“We made bread: water, salt, sugar, a bit of oil, and flour. We mixed it all and baked it on a dry frying pan under the lid. My kids love this bread even now.”

“Before going camping, my grandma would always take a baguette, cut it into 3 pieces horizontally, put some butter and jam inside, and put the pieces back together. When we sat down for a snack, she would cut the baguette into regular pieces, and it would taste like a cake.”

“I was reminiscing about meals from my childhood when I remembered the super-carrot-balls that my mom used to make. I called my mom, asked for the recipe, and she started crying. She asked me why I had no money and I told her that I just wanted this meal. And she started crying even more. She explained that when I was a kid, we had no money at all, and when I would ask for meatballs, she would make “meatballs” from carrots.”

“My grandma (who grew up during WWII) taught me that you can make soup from almost anything. At least once a week I just throw a bunch of scrap veggies, leftover meat, rice, and whatever other random bits are left over from the week’s meals into a pot with some stock, boil it all together, and bam!”

“Sometimes we would have a special treat and have pancakes for dinner. These would have been topped off with some golden syrup or lemon and sugar. For the lemons, we would have to go around to our aunty and get them off her tree. It was only sometime later, after we were all adults, that we found out that the reason for the pancakes was that some of our milk had soured and the recipe mom used for the pancakes used sour milk as one of the ingredients.”

“My mother used to make fried mush. This was graham flour stirred into boiling water, salt and pepper added, then poured into a greased pan or bowl to set until firm. As children, we loved this and thought it a special treat not knowing it was because the food budget for the month had run well down.”
