I remember when my mom was single with three of us under 12
And was scratching her head for tips on bugeting.
I remember she found a book at the library called 'Make you own Groceries'
We even went as far as to make our own ketchup.
I know she doesn't have tme to do any of that now, but when we did, it sure got us through a tight time.

I love your writing and I love hot dogs. What a combination. The best dogs may be in Philly and not New York city!
