Our Food is Fighting, vintage poster image
First of all, this poster image comes courtesy of a very kind reader who sent us an email with a bunch of poster images attachments.  I'll scatter them around in posts in the coming weeks.  So we want to say a big thank you to her for thinking of us when she saw them!

This one is really neat..."Where our Men are Fighting, our Food is Fighting".  That totally makes sense as the Government was very forward in connecting conservation at home to the war effort.  But we think the words at the bottom are so appropriate today...

Buy Wisely...Cook Carefully...Store Carefully...Use Leftovers

True words then, and truer words today.  There is just so much waste in our society, especially when it comes to food, it would be nice to see these kinds of messages around today.

More later this afternoon!  
It's been a cold and wet weekend...ugh.


  1. Those “old-fashioned” values sure do need a resurgence in importance! “Waste not, want not” as the old saying goes. My grandma said that during WW II, they used to have “canning parties” where the ladies got together to share the work and made it into a fun social event.

    Yes, this weekend has had miserable weather. The only good thing about it is that it’s soup weather - I’m fixing to make a big pot of 15 Bean Soup to warm me up!

  2. Good solid principles to live by.
