i»Aff**l, (to.) Upper tot Melnet Tuesday, April 19, 1960 Geitzenauer 30 Years With L-R Elevator THE WAY TO A MAN'S HEART, they've always said, is through his stomach. This, it seems to me, is an awfully messy way to get to a 'man's affections, but I do know that men are more tractable 'after they've had a good meal. And it is also true that all during a man's life, some woman, his mother, his sister, his wife, his housekeeper or his nurse, is Irving to poke appetizing nourishment into him. * * * AS WITH SO MANY OTHER THINGS, man's nourishment goes through stages. At any one given time, you can almost tell how old ft guy is by the food for which he has a passion. These stages begin about two days after he is born when he demands milk in lusty swigs, and they end about four score and ten years later, or just about two days after he has given up all interest in food. * * * IF WE ARE GOING TO PICK typical foods for each of man's stages, — and t warn you for the purposes of this column, we are, — I would say that the stage right after the milk one is the pablum and strained prunes one. Nowadays they begin the solid food for babies — female as well ,as male — a lot earlier than they used to. But the end result is the same: three ounces of strained prunes and pablum on the floors, walls, ceiling, bibs and the hair of an interested spectator; one ounce of strained prunes and pablum in the baby. * * * RIGHT AFTER THE PRUNES AND PABLUM STAGE, comes the peanut butter "samwidge" stage. If you are giving a party for pre-schoolers, never bother to strain your ingenuity over refreshments. Even people who can afford Crepes Suzette and vintage champagne should spare them, for they might as well give up and serve peanut butter sandwiches. One swanky restaurant I heard about caters to the occasional juvenile luncheon trade. They have what they call the "Circus Special at $1.50 per plate. It comes on a silver platter, under glass. You lift up the lid and what do you find? Peanut butter "samwidges", pi' course! * - * * AFTER HE ENTERS THE HALLS OF LEARNING, a guy just can't help but pick up a little sophistication. Then the prime food passion of his life is "hamburger. You can call them Salisbury steaks, Maid-rites, beefburgers, chiliburgers or ground round steak — if'it's beef on a bun, the kids go for it. At our church we have a club where we serve supper to kids 8 years old through 8th grade. Mothers take their turns at cooking, and many is the committee that has beat itself out serving twice-baked potatoes, chicken loaf with mushroom sauce or creamed chicken on something or other. It is always with the aim in mind of delighting the youngsters, but do you know what is the very most popular menu? Beefburgers! Second to that comes hot dogs. s * * * WHEN THE KIDS GET INTO high school, they get into 1 what I call the Pizza and Pepsi stage. Or at least that's what our high school boy prefers. Fellows that age, I've found, like to try their hand in the kitchen, and on one memorable night not so long ago 24 of them gathered at our house, they baked five giant pizzas. Plus 36 bottles of Pepsi. (We weren't home, but they had permission for the party, and I found the house in better shape than' I'd left it.) You can add almost anything, I'm told to a pizza — just so there's lots of stinky cheese. * * * WHEN A GUY GROWS UP. TAKES A WIFE, and suffers through a few months of bride's cooking, he gets into the broiled steak and tossed salad stage. The tossed salad is reasonably easy to cope with, even if he does demand a few spices not found on the ordinary kitchen self. What gives tfte trouble is the prime steak. They like it, but they don't like what it" does to the grocery bill. Even if you buy the tough variety and use tenderizer on it like I do, it is blamed expensive. Husbands like a steak, but on a casserole budget. They never seem to like to eat the leftover casseroles so that .next week they can possibly have steak and tossed salad. * • * SPRINKLED THROUGH THESE YEARS when the guys like •steak best of all comes the urge for some men to try their own hand in the kitchen. Most male cooks fancy they can brew up a meal much better than people of the female persuasion, and some of them do turn out quite passable dishes. But they sure use an awful lot of pots and pans and dishes. Who has to wash these dishes? Some woman, of course! Male cooks lean toward such dishes as spaghetti sauce which takes all day to cook and to which is added everything but the kitchen sink. And scrambled eggs.'The crimes done to that perfectly wonderful natural achievment, the egg, in the name of male chefhood, will probably never be vindicated. ' * * » NOW, ABOUT THE TIME A GUY can afford steak on the menu three or "four times a week, comes another stage. The Ulcer. Or, he finds he has fat in the blood and must avoid all sorts of animal fats, or maybe he is put on a salt-free diet. Some woman has to learn to cook all over again. She tries, hard to accommodate him but it's a little hard to make milk toast or poached eggs tempting and he ends up by blaming the poor diet on her. Then, unless a man is very lucky, for several years before he, dies he re-enters the milk-swigging, prunes and pablum stage. The cycle is complete. * * * • I LIKE TO COOK FOR MEN. The nicest compliment I've ever had paid to me were the time men have eaten my cooking and asked for more. Most of these times, nobody ever said a word about how good it was, but I always figure if they eat it, don't have any immediate stomach pains and come back for seconds, its a compliment. Men haven't yet been taught to remember birthdays but forget ages, so why should we expect compliments on such ordinary occurrences as a well-cooked meal. But it sure would be wonderful, if once in a while, before they give a well-filled belch, they would say, "Say, that was really good!" Guys don't know it, but the man who remembers to compliment a cook is the guy that is always remembered. By the cook. * * * I DON'T KNOW HOW THE MEN will feel about this recipe, but if you have a spring luncheon coming up, you might try this macaroni loaf. It was submitted by Felice Norman to the Third Grade at Bryant's cook book. 1 ciip aspic gelatin 1 cup boiling water % cup cold water 2/3 cup Russian dressing 1 cup cooked macaroni 2/3 cup chopped cabbage 1/3 cup chopped celery 1/3 cup shredded carrots 2 T chopped green pepper or pimiento Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cold water until mixture begins to thicken. Beat in dressing. Add remaining ingredients. Mold into loaf pan. Chill until firm. Serve on lettuce leaf, —GRACE.
