Feeling the pinch? Ninety-something Clara Cannucciari
can teach you how to survive the lean times. In a series of YouTube videos directed by her great grandson, Clara reminisces about the Great Depression ("I had to quit high school because I couldn't afford socks!"), and provides cooking tips on such Depression-era fare as Pasta with Peas
(6:32), Egg Drop Soup
(6:52), Poorman's Meal
(Part 1, 5:41; Part 2, 5:47), Bread
(4:08), and Depression Breakfast
The first three videos were filmed when Clara was 91. The latter three, at 93.
