Default Books on War

I have been reading about 10 books at the same time. Some are cooking history - thank you Muslims! Some are military history. Some are the ecology of food. They all seem connected. It is sort of weird and wonderful. It is like there is an ecology to war.

To have war, you must have trade. To trade, you must have war. This was written a hundred years ago or so, and I think about the Chicom Islands!

More later

I was just reading a cookbook from 1918 called "Foods that will win the war and how to cook them."
How to save wheat, meat,fats,sugar and how to use leftovers. Apparently eating leftovers wasn't a big thing back then(?)

It was an interesting read with the information given and the recipes are some I want to try. Just have to write down what oven temps are : hot,moderate,etc


Just a sample:

Waste in your kitchen means starvation in some other kitchen across the sea. Our Allies are asking for 450,000,000 bushels of wheat, and we are told that even then theirs will be a privation loaf.

Goudiss, Alberta M. (Alberta Moorhouse); Goudiss, C. Houston (Charles Houston). Foods That Will Win The War And How To Cook Them (1918) (p. 8). . Kindle Edition.


One ounce of sugar less per person, per day, is all our Government asks of us to meet the world sugar shortage. One ounce of sugar equals two scant level tablespoonfuls and represents a saving that every man, woman and child should be able to make.

Goudiss, Alberta M. (Alberta Moorhouse); Goudiss, C. Houston (Charles Houston). Foods That Will Win The War And How To Cook Them (1918) (p. 59). . Kindle Edition.



Other sections write about how sauces can make leftovers attractive, wheatless days and meatless days, soups utilizing leftovers, one dish meals (aka casseroles)


I enjoyed greatly. I found it for free for my kindle app on amazon. I wish I had it in a hard copy.
Its interesting to read how people coped during war I think. But not in the strategies and military ways but in the home front and everyday issues

Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

First of all, all human activity is based on solar radiation hitting the Earth and it all starts from there.

Corn! It is all now based on CORN!!! Humans now live on corn!

Hmmm..,

Well, war has been called a "meat grinder."
