On Christmas Eve, I've started serving fondue as my mom used to do.
Having a substantial appetizer that needs less preparation on your part is a good perk to give.
This dish was especially useful during World War II, when Americans were limited in their access to meat and had to use tokens to buy what they needed.
Even now, anytime I'm in the mood for a change from the standard hamburger, I know just where to go.
Kids love them, and I remember enjoying them myself when I was little.
Navy bean soup is a family favorite at my house. In the 1930s, beans were an essential food item.
