Who knew you could eat peanuts for Breakfast, Dinner (lunch) and Supper (dinner)!  Bessie Murphy wrote this fun little cookbook back in 1920 and it is actually filled with quite a few yummy frugal recipes – as long as you love peanuts that is!

How about some bread made from peanuts?
Southern Peanut Bread

2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
Pinch of salt
Mix ingredients in the order given, make into a loaf, and let it stand 30 minutes.
Bake loaf in a well-greased baking pan in a slow oven 30 minutes.

or maybe some peanut soup?

I quart milk
2 tablespoons butter
