Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 4, 1974 THE LETHMIDOI HIHALD 17 The ho me maker By BARBARA L. MYTROEN DUtrict Home Ecooomiit ID training To put new sparkle in your meals, try using salads If the word salad automatically gives you toe impression of a tossed green vegetable salad read on. There are five types of salads: vegetable combinations; fruit combinations; meat, poultry, fish, and egg salads; gelatin salads; and frozen salads. Try some of the following suggestions and turn out the best salad in the county. TIPS FOR SUCCESS Ahead of time clean and chill all ingredients don't forget to chill the salad bowl and plates too. If you leave the salad ingredients in fairly large chunks, they will give the salad a luscious look and a good texture. Before using fruits and vegetables, thoroughly drain them and dry the washed greens. Never stir your salad. A tossed salad means just that, so toss the salad ingredients together lightly. One of the most important parts of a tossed salad is the dressing choose a dressing that complements but does not overpower the other ingredients. Use simple garnishes on your salads like; tomato wedges, onion or green pepper rings, egg slices or wedges of olives, cherry tomatoes, or pickles. VEGETABLE SALADS Always tear salad greens leaving them in bite sized pieces. Browning will occur rapidly if they're cut with a knife. To give cooked vegetables a difference, marinate them for about an hour in French dressing, drain before using. The nack of peeling tomatoes quickly is disclosed below. Run the back of a knife over the skin to loosen it, then pull off the skin. Another method is to loosen the skin by heat, either by plunging the tomato into boiling water for a few seconds or by quickly twirling it on a fork over a flame, then peel. FRUIT SALADS Ever wonder how to get those orange and grapefruit sections to turn out intact? First, peel the fruit closely, then cut down the side of one section membrane and slide off the fruit. To seed grapes quickly cut them in half with kitchen scissors and remove the seeds with another snip or two. GELATIN SALADS To unmold a gelatin salad be sure to first rinse the platter in cold water. Loosen the salad with the tip of a knife and dip the mold just to the rim in warm water for a few seconds. Put the wet platter upside down on top of the mold, hold tightly together, and invert quickly. Carefully lift off the mold, then center the salad by pushing it gently with the back of a spatula. To add a finishing touch, tuck lettuce leaves around and under the salad. HAM AND EGG SALAD This is a meaty main course salad which is delicious served with rolls, a cooked green vegetable, and pickles for a light lunch. This may help you stretch your food dollar and include good nutrition too. Combine V'z cups of fully cooked ham cut into cubes; six coarsely diced hard-cooked eggs; cup chopped celery; and cup chopped sweet pickle. Blend together cup mayonnaise or salad dressing and two tablespoons prepared mustard. Toss with ham mixture. Chill. Serves four. Ann Landers On collision course Arnold Gregory, 11, at the helm, with Hans Brandt, 9, riding piggyback, appear heading on collision course as they coast on a hill at Easton, Pa. Actually they missed the tree with plenty of room to spare. Camera angle and long lens combined to make it look as though they are bound to crash. Dear Ann Landers: Regarding that young man who wanted to break his engagement by mail after taking up three years of a girl's time. You called him "gutless" and said the least he could do was to have the decency to break it off in person. What about a girl who takes up three years of a man's time, is treated to expensive dinners, plays, concerts, is driven everywhere she wants to go, accepts gifts and finally helps him select a beautiful diamond ring? Two and a half months before the wedding, SHE calls if off by phone and keeps the ring. The guy probably got off lucky at that. Think of what life would be like married to such a gold-digger. The point of this letter is to remind people that sometimes it's the girl who's the rat Bay City Reader Dear Bay: In most states, the male is entitled to the ring when the girl breaks the engagement. If you're the guy who got dumped you ought to check with a lawyer. Dear Ann Landers: Here's a solution for professional peo- ple who are pestered at social affairs for free advice: After the fourth person at a party pumped my physician husband for advice on a medical problem, he turned to an attorney friend and asked, "What in the world can I do about this sort of The attorney said, "Send 'em a bill tomorrow. The word will get around and people will leave you alone. My husband replied, "Thanks, I will." Two days later my husband received a bill from the at- torney. He paid it and took his advice. Indoctrinated Dear In: Thanks for the word. Nothing succeeds like success. Dear Ann Landers: Please tell those middle-aged ladies with beautiful bodies to quit referring to "stretch marks" from childbirth as ugly. Usually they ask you how to get rid of them. I am 25 years old and have three lovely children. I have stretch marks on my breasts as well as my abdomen and hips. I do not consider them ugly, and neither does my husband. They are the scars I bear as a result of having children. If you print my letter, it might help other women with stretch marks feel less ashamed. Salt Lake Mama Dear Mama: Here it is and now take that and that, you gals out there who are ashamed of your stretch marks. They're your medals for motherhood! Cheer up. Headphones hazardous Bath sharing LONDON (AP) A couple named Whieldon filled up their tub at a hotel in Somerset and jumped in to experiment with Britain's latest idea to save fuel- sharing the bath. But they forgot to turn off the taps. Water started seeping into the bar below. Then a small piece of the ceiling fell. The manager, Alan Davey, rushed upstairs and knocked on the bathroom door. "It was opened by this young he reported. "She was in the nude and rather confused, and they said they had been trying to economize with the two-in- the-bath routine. "I don't think patriotism was one of the things they had in Davey said. The couple checked out hurriedly in the morning after the other guests cheered them and broke into a chorus of the Eton Boating Song at breakfast. Davey was-left with a repair bill. The idea of the joint bath won a prize last week for a middle-aged London housewife in a competition on ways to save electricity. THE BETTER HALF OTTAWA (CP) Motorists should never wear headphones when listening to music in cars, warns.the Consumers' Association of Canada. Headphones impair driving senses and are best saved for a relaxed home environment, not for hazardous traffic conditions.
