Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - November 9, 1971, Winnipeg, Manitoba14 Winnipeg free press tuesday november 9, 1971 shopping s a pleasure for French housewife Beverley Bramsc is a former member of the Montreal Bureau staff of the Canadian press who married a French Man and went to Marseille to live. In this Story she tells of the trials the a housewife grocery shopping in Southern France. By Beverley a raffle Marseille up a proper French housewife goes shopping once and often twice a Day. Horrors you say once a week is bad enough. Remembering the Friday night crush around the ground round at Montreal supermarkets i d agree. But in France if you Aren t in a hurry shopping is a pleasure. It was also a daily Neces sity until relatively recently with the appearance of ready sliced cellophane packaged bread Frozen dinners and of which Are still regarded with a slightly jaundiced Eye if i can judge by the people i know. Where else does the Butcher poised Over a series of Lamb half an hour in ardent discussion with each customer and then Point out that if that s All the. Money you have this morn ing you d better hang onto it and pay for the meat another i once made the mistake of trying to buy a roast of beef on sunday morning. In my neighbourhood it s mainly the husbands who do the shop Ping on sunday and by the time i reached the head of the line at the Butcher shop it was too late to Cook the roast. The morning of de Gaulle s funeral the local women a students catch up their lost grades Toronto up one year i tired Grade 9 and is keeping up ago a 13-year-old boy from with the regular High school program. His Progress suburban Etobicoke enrolled in Grade 7, counted on his fingers. He could not multiply did not understand the difference Between a cent and a Dollar. This fall the same boy few men attracted by the noise and the Ticu lating with a knife in one hand and leg of Lamb in the t i e Resis Tance deliberated Paris and repatriated the French algerians. But the favorite subject of my Butcher not surprisingly is the High Quality of is meat and the Low Quality meat of most other Butcher shops. The first time i ordered a leg of Lamb he noticed my accent and inquired some what fearfully if i intended to Cook the Lamb in the in g 1 i s h meant boiled. He looked relieved when i said no then proceeded As he will often do with his custom ers to advise me on the Best method to Cook the herbs to use the temperature and timing. Buying fruit and vegetables is just As agreeable. The Man behind says no no take this head of lettuce it is prettier the woman in front has a rec ipe for Tomato sauce and the Salesgirl has recipes for everything and never tries to slip a Mouldy Orange or a bruised peach into my Bas Ket. At the where you buy milk butter cheese and the various canned goods which find their Way onto French merchant is a Stout and Doughty Matron who has lived in the neigh boyhood for 63 years and knows the skeletons in her customers cupboards better than they do themselves. Discretion is not one of her Virtues and with each familiar to her store she likes to discuss the amount of Money Madame. So and so spent on. Cheese this morning. The Only subject she never discusses is herself. Like Many shopkeepers she has a chair in a Corner for old folks and pregnant women but this chair is Hast ily removed to the Back room at the sight of her most Faith Ful old woman who makes the rounds of the shops twice a Day to catch up on the gossip but who smells so bad she scares All the other customers away. With supermarket shopping centres springing up on the outskirts of the cities of Southern France it is a sur prise and perhaps a vanishing pleasure to penetrate the crooked old streets of the same cities and discover the chaos of an open air Market. In the morning the Marseille fish Market spreads along the old Harbor in front of the fishing boats and the fish Are scooped alive out of the boats and onto the tables. Don t question the freshness of the fish for the Fishe woman May launch into a colourful tirade of occasion to draw a crowd if her display has t done so. Aries on saturday morning is one of the last markets in Southern France where one can still see the huge Blue Canvas umbrellas of Camar gue s shepherds and sheep s Collar Bells and in Carpen tras East of Avignon on Market Day in addition to Glossy red displays of farm machines there is a Hawker of glassware who never fails to gather a crowd of suspicious peasants. It s shouted one from the outskirts of the crowd when the Vendor seemed to be exaggerating the wonders of his wares. Cried the Vendor offended. And picking up a tray of his glasses he shattered them on the pavement at his feet. Alors c est do he called triumphant. Integration yes assimilation no Over weight Given advice at Hospital resulted from i what he was taught at the Norse Man Middle school learning Centre. This is a Pilot project en-11 a u n c h e d by the Etobicoke school Board a year ago for a dozen youngsters who had never earned a legitimate pass from one Grade into the next.

Dear folks i had to make 320 fingertip sandwiches today seven loaves of with All crusts trimmed. The crusts must be removed. I have been making these for years and discarding the crusts or feeding them to the Birds. Can you imagine How Many crusts there were my husband walked in and said let s Don t feed the crusts to the Birds this time Why Don t we put them on a cookie Sheet and bake them in the oven. Well Call them Cru sties the sandwiches contained d i f f e r e it fillers such As Chicken salad tuna fish salad homemade Pimento cheese and Salami. I did t believe you could put this mixture of crusts All to Gether and Toast them the crusts do have parts of the filling on but so help me Hannah you sure can. We toasted them on cookie sheets until Golden Brown. On some of them we sprinkled onion Salt others garlic Salt still others Sesa me seed. And on those crusts which held bits of the cheeses i sprinkled paprika which was mixed with Salt Pepper both a dash of Cayenne and Plain old Pep per lots of and celery Salt. We put the Sheet on the Middle shelf of a 400 degree oven and tossed from time to time so that All of the tid bits browned easily and evenly. The most important part of the whole procedure is to keep turning these crusts every few minutes until Golden Brown and entirely Crisp. You Don t Wany any soggy ones. Don t pile the Cru sties too High on the cookie Sheet As this will prevent the crisping. For those of you who want something Way mix All of these condiments to Gether with some Margarine and dribble drip or Sprinkle it Over these wonderful tid bits. It was suggested by my Lovely neighbor that these Finger titbits be put right Back in the same plastic bag that the bread came in and that the same twisted that came on the bread wrapped be used. You talk about dolls she was one to think of it. My husband also discovered these could be either broken up or Cut with the electric knife and used As Croutons for soups or salads. And they can be Frozen and used any time. Of dear Mother of Bessie that s a cow Don t we hate to give husbands credit. But i be just got to Bow to a Man this time Don t you agree i did. Kissed him too and even fed him some of them these goodies can be used for dips instead of the Plain of potato chips Nib lies i Call pm just some thing to nibble or served along with soup in Stead of crackers.
