Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, May 16, 1973 the grab bag MAUREEN JAMIESON D I AD'S BIG DAY is sneak- ing up on us, and if all your creative thinking still produces the same old tie and socks, why not give the cat the canary, and toss in a shirt for good measure? Snirt designer Al Ivler of New York, who says the man most interested in his appearance is always in show business, went to four per- forming pops to ask what kind of shirt they would like to receive as a Father's Day gift. TV comic Alan King re- plied: "I would prefer a striped shirt. I have no gen- uine love of striped shirts, but I won 500 solid-color ties in a contest. Unfortunately, striped shirts are the only tiling I can wear with a solid tie." Paul Anka, singer-compos- er, said: "I'd like to have a lot of ruffles. Call it the Douglas Fairbanks syndrome if you like, but I feel like a swashbuckler in a ruffled Pianist composer Sergio ilendes said: "I like pale blue shirts. I can't explain why. but I feel creative when I'm wearing a blue shirt. I'm aware that whites are coming back, but I'll hold off as long as I can." Jack Cassidy gave this view: ''Hake it a solid color a button-down collar. I have a wild hunch button- downs are on the way back, and big. If I'm wrong, what the heck I got the shirt as a gift, The message we are sup- posed to receive is that what- ever Dad likes, he should get. vrhether or not he really wears the pants in the family, he can at least wear the shirt he wants V The craze hasn't hit Leth- bridge yet or if it has, I haven't heard about it but the newest way to keep slim, trim and what-have-you in New York is belly dancing. The best known school is run by Serena the Belly Dan- cer who took up the profes- sion because her mother was an opera singer from Buda- pest and her father a jazz musician from Manhattan. Her students come from the dear old 'all walks of ranging from a hospital phy- siotherapist who lies about her age to a 74-year-old pen- sioner as limber as a lass of 18 summers. Serena says she empha- sizes grace and not crudeness and blatant sensuality. Dancing is a fine way to keep supple, she claims. And at her studio, gals from 11 to the abovementioned septua- genarian, finger c y m bals tinkling, are learning to enjoy what is usually considered a pretty tedious task keeping trim. Our ever alert fashion hound tells us the styles of the forties are once again being relegated to the attic along with those well-known high button boots. Hot pants, I have been old, have been overtaken by something called rehearsal shorts, a la Ruby Keeler. (No, I never met her either. She was a big singing name of the era. Ask your Grannie about her.) To get back on the track, rehearsal shorts are a bitty bit longer than hot pants, have cuffs on the bottom, and can be bought with matching jackets. Students, young couples who like to entertain buffet style, and any cook with two left hands will love this reci- pe. Prime requirements are good can opener and the pa- tience to wait for the vege- tables and meat to simmer for proper blending. Try serving it with a hearty salad and crisp bread. Easy French Stew with Noodles 1 can (16 oz.) whole tiny carrots, undrained i can (16 oz.) white onions. undrained 1 cup beef bouillon OR burgundy wine lean oz.) cream of mushroom soup, undiluted l cup water 1 pkg (1% oz.) dried onion soup mix 2 Ibs. chuck steak, cut into cubes (trim fat) cup whole pimento-stuffed olives (optional) I 6 oz. uncooked wide egg noodles (about 3 cups) In large heavy pot or dutch oven, blend together liquid drained from carrots and on- ions, plus v.ine or bouillon, mushroom soup, water and soup mix. Stir >n meat. Bring mixture to a boil: cover and simmer two hours or until meat is tender, stirring occas- ionally. Stir in carrots, onions, olives and uncooked noodles. Bring to boil, cover and simmer stew until noodles are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. If necessary, add additional water to stew during cooking period to achieve proper con- sistency.

Only one bank talks women's rights By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO As yet, only one Canadian bank has been willing to talk with a women's rights group about its women employees. The Bank of Nova Scotia's chairman of the board. T. A. Boyles, and chief general manager, J. A. G.

"They've invited us back a year from now to review the situation." The meeting, which the committee still hopas may be duplicated with other chart- ered banks, was the result of a campaign to improve the lot of women who work in banks. SEEK EQUAL CHANCE Generally, the committee wants women given equal op- I portunity for promotion, for in-service training courses for advancement, and given a better image in the banks publications. The 1970 report of the royal commission on the status of women said about i women worked in the eight banks surveyed, two-thirds of their total -employees. About 90 per cent of them earned less than yearly. Only 29 were bank managers and only 709 were accountants in the branches involved.

Tasty barbecuing simple to achieve By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer The magic word for the sum- mer season is barbecue, and it doesn't mean a hamburger pat- ty any more. Mealtime on the patio is not only coaler than a spread in the house, but can be as crea- tive, if not more so, than a sup- per off the stove. Sheila Nemens, home econo- mist with the Canadian Natur- al Gas Company, said barbecu- ing is gaining in popularity and is not at all limiting. "Any type of meat may be done very nicely on the barbe- she said, "including chops, steaks, roasts, bams, all kinds cf fish and poultry. "People tend to be braver outdoors and experiment more over the barbecue with unusu- al recipes, and yet they're all so simple to do. It's a matter of using whatever you happen to have around." Proper temperature is the most important thing to re- member when using a regular coal-type barbecue, she said, and experimenting to get to that point is the only way to find out. "You should expect a few mistakes, but eventually you catch on and remember how hot the coals should be for each meat" she added. "If the coals are too hot, the meat cooks too fast and be- comes tough; or if the meat is done too slowly over cool coal', it tastes undercooked whether it's done or not." A common mistake many weekend barbecuers make is piling the coals on top of one another and expecting good re- sults. Arranging the coals in a flat spaced, polka dot pattern in the barbecue produces the most even heat for most grill cook- ing, while an oval effect (slight- ly larger than the bird) is best ior poultry. "If the bird is being done too quickly and the skin seems burnt, the coals should be moved out to form a larger oval to slow the fire she said. To prevent flare-ups and fires which are so common when barbecuing, Miss Nemens suggested that all possible fat be cut from the meat prior to cooking. "When doing hamburgers, a tin foil tray placed directly over the coals will catch the dripping fat and elminate flare-ups. "Keeping a clothes sprinkler of water handy for occasional fires is much better than just throwing water on the coals, as it leaves cool spots and the meat heats she commented. Preparation of the meat is as important as the correct tem- perature, with marinading the most popular and simple meth- od. "Although many sauces may be used on meats, most people prefer to marinade and store the meat in the fridge over- she said. "Using wine and onions is the simpliest, and gives any meat a pleasant flavor. Season- ing with salt and pepper is ef- fective too, or for a really nice roast, try soya sauce, a little sugar and a clove of garlic." Miss Nemens suggested that bam steaks could be cooked quickly on the grill, and glazed with a mixture of honey, brown sugar and cloves for just the right touch. "An extra with ham would be pineapple rings, either fresh or canned, which are just -warmed through on the skewers." Casseroles to complement ev- ery dish are quick and easy to prepare, as well as varied po- tato recipes which stray from the usual potato salad. "A special treat is to take a french loaf, slice in thick pieces but not to cut through to the bottom, and fill it with pro- cessed cheeses and meats. It's wrapped in foil and placed on the barbecue for a few minutes until the filling melts and she added. She concluded saying that steaks and chops take the least amount of time, with four min- utes cooking time on either side; and roasts placed on a spit could take approximately two and one half hours. For a departure from the usu- al patio fare, Miss Nemens suggests: Peppered Steak 4 tblsp peppercorns 4 boneless shell or sirloin steaks SA inch thick salt 1 tbsp minced green onions '2 cup dry white wine OR substitute 1 cup heavy cream 1 tbsp melted butter cup brandy OR lemon juice cup butter or margarine 1 tbsp chopped parsley Crush peppercorns coarsely under rolling pin. Trim excess fat, pat dry and sprinkle with salt. Press pepper firmly into each side of steaks and allow to stand for two hours. Broil three inches from firebed four min- utes on each side. Prepare sauce and combine green onion and wine in sauce- pan. Bring to boil and cook one minute. Add cream, bring to boil, adding melted butter and flour. Stir into sauce until smooth. Add brandy. Remove from heat, add but- ter a tbsp. at a time, rotating pan until butter melts and com- bines. Pour around steak be- fore serving or serve sauce in boat. Sprinkle steaks with pars- ley. Serves four. Potatoes in Foil 3 large potatoes 2 tbsp dry onion soup mix 4 slices bacon, fried crisp and crumbled cup grated parmesan cheese cup butter 1 tbsp water Peel and slice potatoes on large sheet of heavy-duty alum- inum foil. Sprinkle with soup mix, bacon and cheese. Dot with butter. Sprinkle water ov- er and mix lightly together. Seal foil tightly, leaving a little room for food to expand. Set on edge of grill and cook about 1 hour or until potatoes are done, turning the package of- ten. Serves 4-6.
