Save Money With Old Fashioned Cooking!

Save Money With Old Fashioned Cooking!
If you need help saving money on your food budget, I saw the most wonderful book while watching "The Doctors" on TV!  The book is called "Clara's Kitchen: Wisdom, Memories, and Recipes from the Great Depression" The doctors on the show recommended the book as a common sense way to eat healthy food inexpensively.  I just thought Clara was adorable!  She also had a video filled with more recipes and her stories from the depression.

Questions may be as specific as "is geometry higher than algebra 2?" , "what comes after algebra 2?" , or "what grade do you take geometry?"
