More than living simply, more than living 'green', thrifty grandmas knew the importance of the 'economics' in Home Economics. The history of home ec, lessons in thrift, practical tips and ideas from the past focused on sustainability for families and out planet. Companion to http://www.thingsyourgrandmotherknew.com/

Consider it training, hunting for vegetarians (depending upon the donut recipe), or just a silly party game, this vintage shooting gallery game idea came from that vintage donut party book.
