I started this blog simply to enjoy myself writing bits and pieces of life, especially the cheap bits. And no, not in that way! At one time in my life, I was raising kids on about $100 a week and spent every Christmas browsing through the Sally Ann for gifts. It was a dream to figure out how to feed us all well and nutritiously on practically nothing. One way is to do volunteer work at your local organic grocery store–something I didn’t really enjoy, but I got a 10% discount of food for doing it. Anyway, I had to find food they’d eat and that was also cheap. One day, I thought, I’ll write a book about how to do this. And here I am. This is a modern book.
Here’s a picture of one of my “kids” that survived that era. He’s the big male. The smaller one is my very great friend, Damian, a gold nugget in my arsenal of precious gems. The lovely lady is Philip’s wife and inspiration: Trudy. Oh yes, the big male’s name is Philip. Looks like he got enough to eat back in the day!
Here are pictures of the other two who “suffered” through a vegetarian youth. Stephanie and Robin (pictured here with me).
