Meal planning variety is the keynote to successful meal planning. First choose foods from the Basic four food groups. These Are i. Bread and whole Grain cereals 2. Milk and milk products 3. Vegetables and fruits 4. Meats. If All of these food groups Are represented in your daily meal plans you will be assured of an adequate Supply and essential nutrients. But food not Only nourishes the body it has an Appeal to the senses and so we plan for meals that look Good have variety in flavor and texture and include both hot and cold foods. The most attractive foods include foods with Eye Appeal. Color is the first noticeable one. Reds yellows and greens bring out a More favourable reaction to food than a monotonous grouping of meats potatoes and bread with no color values. It is also important to Cook foods so that color is retained when it is put on the serving Platter. Shape and size also relate to food appearance. An assortment of round Square or miscellaneous shapes tends to quicken appetite Appeal. A meal should not have More than one indefinite some items could remain whole others Cut up in pieces. But flavor is our most attractive food characteristic. Flavor includes taste and Aroma and usually we try to incorporate several complementary flavors in a meal without allowing Strong flavors to overpower the less noticeable ones. When you Are thinking about next weeks meals try to incorporate some of these ideas and see what a difference it can make.

Bennington Banner saturday april 24, 1985-3 woman s world Twenty acres More or less 27 four Gallons of syrup by Carlo Wolter after our first annual town meeting we experienced another significant March event in Vermont. This is the time of year when Maple Trees Wear sap buckets and the Woods resound with a musical tap tap tap As the sap drips into pails sugar houses erupt with White plumes of billowing steam and the Flavoured smell of boiling sap mixes with that of burning Wood. Even the modern equipment Hasni to changed some of this although some of the gathering methods have changed since we first watched neighbors gather sap. They poured it into a huge wooden vat that stood on horse drawn sled. When it was full the men boarded the Back of the sled and horses pulled the Load to the sugar House tucked away in a snowy Clearing. There we saw for the first time How sap is boiled in shallow evaporators until it reaches the Sweet Golden syrup stage. We watched it being piped into Large barrels to be filled into ornamental Metal containers later. And we tasted fresh hot syrup. It All looked so simple that on the Way Home i said to Charles school Loohs red Brick monday a Tomato soup Bologna sandwiches cube cheese Carrot and celery Sticks peaches and cookies milk. Tuesday a Spaghetti peas hot muffins pears milk. Wednesday a Tomato juice Turkey and Gravy Rice Green Beans bread and butter plums milk.

Wednesday a hot dog on Roll Corn Cherry tapioca milk. Thursday a hot Turkey Sandwich Cranberry buttered beets fruit jello milk. Friday a Macaroni and tomatoes tuna and celery sandwiches peas cake milk. Quot gee that s easy. We could make syrup Quot guess we could Quot said Charles looking at the souvenir spigot Given to him by our neighbor. Quot i can make these from when we arrived Home he strapped on his snowshoes and went in search of Ash saplings which he hollowed out with a hot wire. It was a slow process but he came up with enough spigots to tap 22 of our Maples. We used fruit juice cans buckets shortening cans and water pails. Our boiling equipment was As primitive As that of the pioneers. A Large galvanized Wash tub was our evaporator which we placed on two Iron bars bridging the Gap Between two Flat topped boulders with the space underneath As a fireplace. Several times a Day Charles and i Snowshoe through the Woods with water buckets to gather the sap. And while it boiled under a billow of White smoke we dug Wood from the Snow and Cut it to keep the fire burning. Cutting Wood on top of three feet of Snow or More Wasny to exactly easy especially while wearing snowshoes. Oto Day one of them got in the Way of Charles saw and that s How a new Model of Square toed webs was invented. We boiled sap from Early morn in to late at night. Long after the Moon cast shadows across the Forest floor we were still boiling sap. The syrup did no to look much like that of our neighbors. It was much Darker almost like tobacco juice because of the twigs and leaves and pieces of bark that fell into the open tub. But in the end we had almost four Gallons of tasty Maple syrup from our own Woods made by our own efforts. We never tasted anything so Good. Even though a lot of Snow still fell during March that year and the beginning of april the Sun Rose higher the weather warmed and then one Day it was Spring. And like everything else that awakens in Spring new problems were born.
