Nana grew up during The Great Depression. Her sisters could not all go to school because they had only a few pair of shoes. When it came to saving money, my grandparents were frugal and the kitchen was not off limits. Recycled ingredients like pasta, vegetables, ham and beef provided breakfast, soup and dinner. “Frittata of pasta” is made from leftover pasta. Just add red bells, some Romano Cheese to an egg mixture for a quick meal. We live in a society of plenty, but many before us were less fortunate. This taught me to appreciate the blessings I have.
