Living Today The Salina Journal Dinner is served TABLE TALK — Above, a round double pedestal table and china cabinet turn one end of a living room into a dining area. On the right, a breakfast nook is an all-meal dining area. Below, in a roomy entry foyer, oak-finished Colonial chairs and a space-saving drop-leaf table can be used for dining. You don't need a separate dining room. Almost any modest-sized corner of your home or apartment will do for dining. The first trick, of course, ia to select furniture that's light in scale and will serve your needs. Because it originally was designed to fit into the cottage-size rooms of the settlers, early American furniture is a good choice. Saving space When you're choosing table styles, consider a drop-leaf because the leaves can be droped flat when the table isn't in use, thus saving valuable space. This kind of table is ideal for a foyer that's used for dining. A round table has virtues too. It will take up less space than a rectangular one. Choose one with a leaf or two so it can be expanded into an oval for special occasions. If your dining table will be placed against a wall, however, a rectangular table is your best choice. If spaced is limited, use bridge tables for dinner parties, stashing them under the bed or in a closet when not in use. Straight-back chairs take up a minimum of space, but if dining chairs also will be used for living area seating, open arm chairs provide more comfort. If space permits, a narrow hutch is a perfect addition for storing china and linens. Where do you place your dining table? If there's room, it can go in a corner of the living room, in the breakfast nook, or in a foyer.

Church Calendar Organizing your kitchen tools If you spend half your cooking time looking for ingredients, cooking utensils and small appliances, you might consider changing your kitchen organization. A few simple tips can help you arrange kitchen tools to cut down on cooking time and frustration. First, place items near where you use them. For Instance, ideally you'd store dishes and flatware on shelves and in drawers near both your eating area and your sink or dishwasher. You could place spices and condiments, flour, sugar and other cooking ingredients above or below the counter where you mix cakes and prepare meatloaf. Cleaning aids would also appear near areas where they are used. For instance, you might want soap on a shelf near the sink and oven cleaner in a safe cupboard out of the reach of children, near the oven. Next, arrange items on shelves and in cupboads in the order of most frequent use. Placing the most frequently used items in the front part of the most accessible cabinets, shelves and drawers prevents such frustrations as having to move the broken waffle iron to find your favorite frypan. An easy way to arrange kitchen tools is to begin in each work area (sink, stove, food preparation area, etc.), then arrange from the center of the area outward, placing items you use most frequently nearest the center of the area in which you use them. For instance, you would place items used daily at the stove near the stove. Hot pads, spatulas and other cooking tools might hang on hooks on an accessible wall over the stove, while salt, pepper and other condiments used daily might rest on a spice rack or in a cupbord beside the stove. In the next most accessible places, items used weekly might appear. For instance, special vegetable steamer pans might be stored on shelves higher or lower and further away than items used daily. You'd place less frequently used items, such as a seldom-used gourmet pan, or a special grill, on the highest and lowest shelves and in corners hardest to reach. Make your own granola cereal For a new twist, concoct granola with your favorite whole-grain flake cereal. Add raisins or another finely chopped dried fruit, chopped walnuts, shredded coconut and sunflower-seed kernels, proportioning as you wish.
