Those of you who have chosen homemaking as a career can set aside a hall day for baking your own goodies right in your own oven. There are few things nicer man coming into a kitchen full of busy bustling, testing the cake, plump ing fat loaves of bread on racks to cool, or packing cookies in fresh wax paper for pantry shelves—for those fine boys in the service! When sugar rationing first came into the picture, most of us feared that it would not allow enough for home baking needs, but we have found ways to make sugar stretch. Or, perhaps we should say. corn syrups and honey to make baking possible. With eggs up in price and fats becoming scarce, we have changed our recipes to fill these needs, too!

Use green vegetables as soon as possible after buying. They lose quantities of their vitamin C just sitting and being exposed to air. Add dressing immediately to vegetables and fruits after cut ting them. The coating prevents some vitamin loss. Put away the soda box when cooking green vegetables. It's alkaline and destroys vitamins. Shell peas or lima beans only just before using. Wash leafy greens just before cooking The percentage of vitamin loss will be lessened. Start cooking frozen foods be fore thawing. It is believed that less vitamin C is destroyed by that method. _i_ This Week’s Menu Breaded Pork Tenderloin Seven Minute Cabbage Riced Potatoes Grapefruit-Carrot Salad Whole Wheat Bread Butter •Hot Water Sponge Cake Peaches Beverage •Recipe Given. creamy.
