I was "waxing nostalgic" on facebook the other day (waxing nostalic? is that right?) and I got to thinking.

I was hungry and didn't know what I wanted to eat. There was a very small piece of chicken (boneless/skinless) in the fridge and a small container of gravy. I had the chicken and poured the gravy over bread......gravy bread....something I grew up with.

But that brought back other memories.

I remember my dad having bread and milk for a meal. Sometimes, it included side meat (bacon). I also ate this and didn't think anything of it.

We are chidlren of chidlren of the depression, did your parents have something like this? I asked this questions to my cousins and I got a lot or responses, not all from family, just ask one our boomers. :)

What was a "depression era" meal that your parents might have had?
