Also I send small cans of fruit and fruit juices, pretzels, gum and hard candies, of course sending home-baked cookies is taken for granied. In between all of these I pack our home town bound.

Cooking Is Fun By CECILY BROWNSTONE AP Food Editor COMPANY DINNER This way of giving roast lamb a flavorful touch may be new to you. Parsley Lamb Baked Barley Snap Beans Salad Bowl Pineapple Upsidedown Cake PARSLEY LAMB 4% pounds—about—shank half of leg of lamb, boned and tied, about 3 pounds after boning Mi cup finely chopped parsley 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 large clove garlic, crushed Salt, pepper and paprika Have a good portion of the fat cut away from surface of roast. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the parsley, oil and garlic; stuff mixture into space left when shank bone was removed. Use a small spoon and your fingers to do this, from both ends of roast without disturbing string that binds meat. Sprinkle surface of lamb with salt, papper and paprika. Place meat on a straight rack in a shallow roast pan; roast in a 35-degree oven until lamb is as done as you like —165 to 170 degrees on a meat thermometer for meat with a pink tinge, 180 degrees for well done meat. Count on 35 to 40 minutes per pound. Fat may be skimmed from drippings in pan and dripping used for natural or slightly thickened gravy. When lamb is carved, spoon a bit of the parsley mixture over slices. DEAR ABBY: My problem is my youngest son. He has had two bad marriages and now he is separated from his third wife.
