       Combine several foods. As in casseroles, most stove-top recipes call
    for meat, fis h, or cheese-plus pasta, rice, or potatoes-plus sauce.
       When the sauce is a condensed soup, the eating is superlative. Con-
    densed soups impart ext ra navor while uniting the remaining ingredients.
       Serve your speedy supper dish piping hot with crisp salad and warm
    rolls. Now--{;ollect the compli ments.

occasions for everyone-when good friends get together.

      TODAY'S            SERV I CE          BUFFET           STYLE
An easy style of service is a major requirement for today's parties
because of smaller homes without dining rooms and little outside help.
Buffet service is the answer for many a hostess. Nothing is more
dazzling than a buffet table covered with colorful tempting foods.
Each guest picks up a plate and helps himself while the hostess guides
the proceedings.
   Successful buffets are those where guests are at case to enjoy the
company and the food. Some pointers to follow arc these:

  I. Plan the menu with an eye for color. If the main dish is a casserole,
     top it with golden cheese or some slices of tomato or stuffed olives
     for that hit of color.
  2. Serve at least onc hot dish (perhaps a vegetahle) . Or if you're serving
     mainly hot foods, include relishes or a chilled fruit dessert for contrast.
  3. Plan the food so the main course and accompaniments can all go on
     one's dinner plate. To achieve this, it's often helpful to serve vege-
     table relishes and spiced fruits instead of a salad.
  4. Fork foods arc best because guests won't have w worry about several
     pieces of silverware to juggle. Plan a meat that can be cut with
     a fork (for example-sliced ham or boned chicken); or usc a main
     dish such as chicken a la king which requires no cutting.
  5. Trays arc helpfUl if guests do not sit at a table to cat.



                                                                                   89

                 Your freezer can be a real friend when unexpected company pops in
                 or when your schedule's extra tight. It's so nice to know that your tasty
                 homemade specialties are just waiting on the freezer shelf, ready to help
                 you maintain your culin ary reputation at a moment's notice. You can
                 cut down on last-minute dinner party preparation time, too, if you
                 make the main dish ahead of time and freeze it. It's fun to be the
                 unruilled hostess and still come through with a delightful meal.

                   If frozen properly, your food will retain every bit of the fre sh taste
                 and bright color you enjoy so much. Just remember to package your
                 food in air and moisture-proof wrappers and containers, and to keep
                 your freezer set at D°F. or lower.

                    It's also a good idea to organize the packages in your freezer so
                 you can find each item of food when you want it. One way is 10 post
                 a list ncar the freezer and write down each item as you store it, check-
                 ing it oIT when you remove it for use. This way you'll know exactly
                 what food s you have for planning nutritious, interesting meals.



                                                                                                                                                                 123
     Soups contribute a great deal to households with freezers by helping
  with the preparation of special cooked dishes. If you're the Iud. ' owner
                                                                        )
  of a freezer, you know it's as easy to prepare a double amount of foods
  that freeze wel1...:....-part to be eaten at once and part to be frozen. Many
  casseroles lend themselves especially well to this-and by using a caD
  of soup for sauce, you can halve your cooking time. This is true also
  for creamed chicken and similar dishes to be frozen.
     Research has shown that meats particularly freeze better when pre~
  pared with a sauce; this protects the meat from contact with air-and,
  therefore, aids in preventing off-flavors. Soup sauces arc especially
  good for freezing because they retain their smooth consistency at low
  temperatures.
     Other pointers to insure good results in freezing prepared foods arc
  these :

      I. Freeze only as much of a prepared food as you can usc ill onc month        ~
         or soon after. Generally. a fairly fast turnover is recommended by
         freezer spec ia lists-rather than long storage of any food items.

      2. Cool a cooked food as fas t as possible and wrap it carefu lly so it is
         moistll feproo f.




      3. For packagi ng. you may place mixlure in plastic freezer container or
          glass ja r; leave I-inch of head space at top because food will expand
         when frozen. Another method is to freeze and store the casscrole
         mixturc or sim ilar food rig ht in thc casserole if you have one (0
         spare . Or line a clean casserole with heavy duty aluminum fo il.
         enough (0 wrap completely around the food and seal over the lop.
         Pour in the food and seal foi l with a double fold (press down tight
         against food). Pl ace casserole in frcezer unti l food is frozen so lid.
         Th en simply remove the foil-wrapped fro zen food fro m thc cas-
         se role . . . it will keep ils shJpe and be protccted in the freezer.
         When rcady to scrve the dish. re move it fro m foi l (still frozen); put
         in pan to heal.

     4. Freezing at O"' F. or lower is impon:mt to .success with any kind of
        food . Put unfrozen foods in the (<lstest freezing ;lre:t or in direct con-
        tact with freezer walls or shelves <lnd ilway from alre<tdy frozen foods.

 Lunch Box Meals
The American way of lunch-soup and sandwiches. What a great way
to include vegetables, meat , or milk in noon meals.
   Here arc some tips to help you pack the best lunches ever:
  I. Plan a well·balanced meal with a few extras to sat isfy your "1uncher. "
     Select favorite food s and food combinations-one of the best is
     soup and sandwiches. An occasional "surprise" would be a welcome
     treat. Plenty of paper napkins and colorful straws for sipping milk
     arc other "i nviting" touches for the IUllch box.
  2. For sandwiches, usc a variety of fillings ;uld breads. If yo u ma ke up
     sa ndwiches the night before they're to be eaten, keep them rcfriger-
     :Hed unti l you pack the lunch. Wrap sandwiches in moistureproof,
      clcar lunch box wrap material or foil as soon as they :ITe made.
  3. Wrap lettuce or other moist lillings, sll ch as sli ccd tomatoes, sep-
     arately. Do not include salad-t ype meat lillings for sandwiches unless
     the lunch can be stored in a cool place-a nd will o nl y be held for a
     short time.
  4. Always have one hot dish. You're sure of pleasing if you incl ude a
     vac uum bottle of hot soup . Any of the condensed and read y to serve
     soups arc good to carry. And many kinds may be prepared with milk
     - nut ritional plus. A wide-mollth vacuu m bottle i ~ idca l for soup-
     casy to pour into and 10 cat from. r.'lakc sure the soup's hot before
     packing (rinse the vacu um bOllle wilh hot water hefore pouring in
     soup). Be sure to se nd along a SO lip spoon or a long-handled spoon
     for ealing right from the bonle.

  Great SoujJS

  A salute to {he class ics-those distinctive soups that have long been an
  important part of the world's o utsta nding c ui sines. What makes them
  unique? Eac h unites the best of its country's lands. seas, and tradition s.
  Each spe aks th e universa l language of excel lence.
      In French pOri towns, it's boui llabaisse . In French farm country.
  it's green pca and onion. In Scotland , barley goes into the broth . In
  Ind ia, curry reigns supreme.
      In Marylund, U.S.A. , the c rab makes a great bisque. In New
  England, clam is lh e chowde r choice. Everywhere, U.S.A., the r uddy
  farm tomato becomes America's favo rite soup.
      The art of soup-mak ing contributes a fa scinating chapter to world
  history. Back in the twelfth century, so up-mak ing was such a refined
  skill that sometimes fiv e or six kinds were served at a single me al.
      In 1765 an elllerprizing Paris tradesman , Momieur Boulanger,
  began se lling bowls of soup which could be bought aI any hour. H e
  caHed them " rcstaurantes" or pickups. So popular were they that the           ...,
  c ustom spread, and eventll:llly additiona l dishes were offe red as well .
      With canned soups handy, you can offer " res taurant cs" at any hour,
  too. Here is a selection of all-time gre ats.
