Three days later, pop each balloon with a pin, taking care not to disturb the delicate "dried shapes" :reated. Spray with glitter; hang them high! FOR BURNING Happy the holiday homemaker who has a gas incinerator! Baking and meal preparation go so much faster. Everything from wrappings to parings goes' into the indoor incinerator. (Less tracking- in, too, when big or little feet needn't trek outdoors with trash and garbage!) If you're not among fortunate owners already, wouldn't a gas incinerator make a nice "gift for the home?" See your local gas company or gas appliance dealer. - HOLIDAY RICE Here's how I dressed up Christmas dinner plates last Yule:. Saute */ 4 cup chopped green pepper and £/ cup chopped onion in 2 Tbsp. butter. Combine with 3 cups cooked rice, 1 cup seedless raisins, ft cup chopped pimiento and ].', cup chopped nuts. Pack mixture tightly into six buttered, individual salad-molds. Let stand five minutes; unmold on plate/ and serve hot. Isn't it pretty? Tasty, too. TAKES THE CAKE Glorify a Christmas angel cake! Frost it airily in white. Tie a big glitter-bow high up on three candy canes. Set canes right in the open center of the angel food cake. Crush two more candy canes; sprinkle their "jewels" over the frosting. "STAINED" GLASS Give your living room a cathedral-look for Christmas. Let young ones design huge, geometric shapes and trace them lightly on the window with chalk. Cut colored cellophane to fit shapes; outline each one with gift tape. What glory indoors, when the sun shines through, daytimes ...outdoors, when your lights shine through at night! GIFTED WRITER Notes like this are a special holiday gift to me!
