Cook Spuds with Jackets On
This is the time of year when
the homemaker needs to save all
the time and labor that she can.
Here are some ideas to help you
If you make a gelatin salad,
double the recipe if your familv
is large enough Serve it the first
day for two meals, then serve
something else the next day for a
salad, but on the third day. go
back and serve portions of the
first salad. Thus you will have
saved time and work
Cook a whole kettle of potatoes
with the jackets on. Rice enough
for the first meal (the jackets
will stay in the ricer). After
lunch, peel the skins from the
potatoes and use enough of them
to make a potato salad for sup
|x?r. Or use part of them for hash
browns. Next day, try dicing
some of them and covering with
a cheese sauce and brown in the
oven until thoroughly heated
through. Hash browns can be
served again, or they can be used
as part of the ingredients of a
casserole dish with other veg
etables added. You will thus have
saved extra time, extra dish
washing and a lot more extra la
bor than if you had stopped to
fix potatoes fresh for each meal.
I Suitable refrigeration is neces
j sary, of course.
Most gardens aren’t furnishing
new potatoes yet so serve maca
roni, spaghetti, or rice in place
of potatoes. Cook more than
enough macaroni. Serve half of
it for lunch and save the other
half for salad the next day. You
can add slivers of cooked meat.
celery, perhaps canned salmon
flakes Blend the salad together
hard boiled eggs, onion, pickle,
with salad dressing and be sure
to make it far enough ahead to
give the flavors a chance to de
velop and mingle.
Consult your freezer book.
There are meats that can be
cooked and half of them frozen
for later use. This is also true of
any soup that doesn’t contain
potatoes. 1 always cook enough
bean soup for two or three meals,
then freeze part of it.
Half a cake can be frozen if
your family is too small to use it
all. A good deal of baking can be
done in one day and the most of
it frozen. Use your head and
your freezer to save you a lot of
work. Make several eggs into
noodles instead of just one and
dry the remainder of the noodles.
Be sure they are perfectly dry
before storing them in glass fruit

Dear Mrs. Pease:
Recently, several ladits had a
pink-and-blue shower for me.
They had some very clever games
and ideas that I thought I’d pass
on to your readers. It seems every
paper you read there is a stork
shower and no doubt the host
esses would like some new
On the invitations, they asked
the guests to wrap their gifts in
a yard of white outing Banner
and to pin the flannel with safety
pins. So this will mean more
diapers for the bundle of joy.
After the guests have arrived,
give each one a spring clip
clothespin. This they clip onto
their clothing and they are to
watch the other guests to see that
they don't cross their legs. If
they do. they can collect their
clothespin The one who has col
lected most clothespins by the
end of an allotted time is the
v inner and is given a small prize.
For games, list all the song ti
tles with "baby” in them. For ex
ample, "Baby Face" and "Baby,
It's Cold Outside" Another game
is to take the given name of the
prospective father and mother
and see how many given names
can be made by using the letters
in their names.
It seems as though all showers
have scrambled wi>rds and this
one was no exception. The scram
bled words and the answers
were: Alosphit, hospital; tleytae,
layette; rodwep, powder; amroluf,
formula; hemrot, mother; codort.
doctor; pradie, diaper; mmokn,
kimono; toieob, bootie; tsenabsi.
This was all the games, but one
guest had a cute little rattle pin
ned on her package to add a little
I heard over the radio yester
day that the given names, John
and Mary, have stepped down
from the top 10 names and the
most popular names of today are
Robert and Linda.
Good luck to all the future par
ents and babies.
