"The cat's meat man pushed his barrow around East End streets selling cheap meat to families as pet food… The decoration on the house marks the coronation of Edward VII." This photo was taken circa 1902 by John Galt, a missionary from the London City Mission, and was used to illustrate lantern slide lectures which were given to raise funds for the work of the mission. Another missionary is standing in the centre with the family. THERE'S NOTHING by bertie

I am not a holiday food purist. When my family switched our eating habits, we carried our love of vegetables and whole grains into the holidays as well. At first, the other members of my extended family were hesitant, but after a few years, they realized that while the food was heavily loaded with vegetables, it was still delicious. These simple sweet potatoes would easily grace our table during the holidays. by lucile
