May 11: The Home Front. Did your family experience rationing during the war? Discuss what items were rationed and how the family was affected. #militarymemories
Items like sugar, butter, gasoline, silk for pantyhose, rubber, metal, coffee, and other items were rationed during the war. How did your family survive on less than what they might have typically consumed or used? Do you have any recipes that were modified during the war years to adjust for lack of sugar or other items?
