Dinners Include Choice of Soup of Salad Texas caviar Dear Heloise: We use a lot of peanut butter. When the jar contents get low, I substitute a fresh jar.

This saves waste and messy efforts on the part of the users in a hurry. Margaret Leininger, Ashland, Ohio Dear Heloise: My kitchen counter space is limited. Therefore, I use the same surface area to prepare most of the meals I cook. After handling raw chicken and other meats, which can carry harmful bacteria, I use an old cleaned-out spray bottle filled with bleach and water. I keep it handy under the kitchen sink. I spray the surface with solution and wipe with a paper towel. Then I proceed to clean with soap Blackboard Specials Fri & Sat.
