Where else could you find a book that includes a recipie for Creamed Chipped Beef on Toast for 100 (from the World War II chapter,) horrifying things to do with bananas (from the nursery foods chapter), and the hilarious high point--the Luau in Your Living Room circa 1957. I won't ruin this for you other than to inform you that it involves cabbage, vienna sausages, toothpicks and a can of sterno.
I've made a few recipies from the book and they've all turned out great. So, not only is it a hoot, you can find recipies for real down home American cooking.

This cookbook contains some practical ideas for dishes to cook on a budget. Just as the people in our great nation learned how to cook great meals without spending very much, our people today can meet the challenges that face us because of shrinking grocery budgets. Here is a book to help survive the economic slowdown.
SQUARE MEALS with the great tastes of yesterday has many retroactive dishes that we enjoyed in our childhood and in our early adult years, when we wanted to eat well while living within small budgets. I confess that we tend to eat spicier foods these days and that it may be necessary to give some of the old standards some pep.
The Chocolate Bread Pudding recipe is something I've been looking for, and I found it here. Also there are some good old-fashioned tuna casseroles. I remember enjoying Cherry Coke Salad as a teenager, and the recipe is here. I can't wait to try Lemonade Fried Chicken.
I highly recommend this book. It has good stuff in it. Also the text with the recipes fascinates us. This book is one of those interesting cookbook readers.
We have the 1985 edition, which is listed as unavailable; it is, however, available at Amazon Marketplace. There are newer editions.

The concept of this book (wonderful, real down-home food) is not supported by the author's choice of recipes, which lacks focus and discrimination. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Crystal Weinglass
