Friends introduced me to this yummy, easy to make homemade soup…
Reading over Mike Johnston’s Hearty soup recipe that was published in our local newspaper, I realized I’d FINALLY come upon a recipe that was VERY similar to dad’s, though it did need tweaking.
Back when my father lost his job at Orenda Engines (The Avro Arrow: Canada’s broken dream) and became one of the over 50,000 men out of work in southern Ontario, many nights my parents had to send us off to bed with nothing to eat. Over time, my father learned to cook very creatively, as meat was not readily available for quite a few years.
I’m SURE you have heard this old adage before, but what you need to understand is that it’s true! How many of us take our automobiles into a garage for service? We pay someone else to do our dirty work. Why? Let’s be honest folks, it’s because most of us do NOT know how to fix our vehicles, else we’d be repairing them like our parent’s generation did… in our back yard.
In 1900, when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to Canada, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line ups, in Halifax to be documented.
Some immigrants would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times.
