I used to love that guy!
I still love GrapeNuts too!
They make the greatest *stretch* in meatloaf folks - try it sometime!
Just add an extra egg, some grape nuts and some beef broth - and make the meatloaf *stickier* than usual.
Anyway, Euell is my hero!
"His father left in a desperate search for work. The food supply diminished until all that was left were a few pinto beans and a single egg,
which no one would eat. E u e l l, then teen-aged and one of four children, took a knapsack one morning and left for the Horizon mountains. He came
back with puffball mushrooms, piñon nuts, and fruits of yellow prickly pear. For nearly a month, the family lived wholly on what he provided"
During his lifelong travels he was a cowboy, hobo, carpenter, surveyor, boat builder, beachcomber, newspaperman, school teacher, farmer, and an
educator. All along, building on the wild food foundation he got from his mother. My impression, from his writings, is that he learned a lot from his
hobo days. Those days where he foraged both from society and nature to acquire his sustenance.
Talk about making lemonade outta lemons!
Great Find IMD12c4FUNN!
