"Poor Man's Meal" - a Depression-era recipe

[YouTube - Link]
91-year old Claire shows how she cooked meals during the Great Depression.  Nothing special - potatoes and hot dogs - but her commentary does make today's problems seem less intense. 

"I had to quit high school because we couldn't afford socks...we couldn't afford anything to wear."

She used a couple tablespoons of tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce I believe. She's so cute. Looks like I'm having me some poor mans dinner for lunch and dinner today!! Yum! I'm going to add some green pepper and lots of garlic and serve it with toasted bread.
