This year for my Birthday - My sister-in-law took my rationing to heart. I got a lovely roast for my Birthday! A true - 100% Beef (in the 40's often horse, goat, and other meats were sold on the black market) rump roast!
Tomorrow I am going to be making a wonderful Guinness Pot Roast! Um-mm - I have been so tired of chicken and I can not wait to eat lovely pot roast.
Ohh and having it swimming in Guinness doesn't hurt :)
Stay tuned for pictures and how it went.
(and for those wondering - it was a gift and I am NOT counting ration coupons for it!!!!)
The Social Experiment
This blog is about understanding and exploring what my Grandmothers experienced by living on the home front during World War II. I am going to be living, as best as I can, to the US rationing standards of 1945. This is a social experiment, not only to connect to my families past, but to explore new way to live environmentally and socially responsible. I hope to show, that by living as our grandparents did, we can reduce the amount of waste that our society throws out and live healthier and more simple lives.
