MA MJS1 Member Park, Kid* Imagination Is Secret To Good Meals--Caterer By ROSAJLIE ROBLES "A menu doesn't have in be expensive to he good," says Tucson's most popular caterer, Mrs. J. M. McNellis. Her belief i« that imagination is 50 per cent of the battle won when it comes to cooking . , . ju«t be sure to allow enough time for preparation and any meal can be good.

"Sometimes it's more if I R« over- ambitious, but then my husband 'hollers'." As to the number of guest* at each party, it varies from eight to 250. Last week's schedule included dinner parties for 40, 60 and IR. it cocktail party for 75 and a luncheon for 1R. Tne McNellises have three sons--Wes. 17: Terry. '·"; and Randy, 14.

The first time she handled a party by herself was when the woman who owned the business fell arid broke her shoulder. "You know how they say that the mail must go through? Veil, when you've agreed to cater a party the party must go on, too, no matter what." Mrs. McNellis takes care of all the details for her parties. She does the shopping and the cooking, furnishes the table service if necessary, provides waitresses and a bartender, and handles the serving. The whole idea, she explains, Js to provide the kind of help and service that many people are accustomed to in their homes back East: Since many are visitors in the Old Pueblo, the silver and the service- they would generally use is unavailable. That's where Mrs. McNellis comes in. She has two silver chafing dishes, a large silver punch bowl and silverware for 100. Her menus are planned so that there will he something that will appeal to all the guests. For example, if the meal is built around Lobrtef Newburg she.in- cludes another main dish because "often men don't like creamed foods and there are always people who won't eat fish." Of all the meats she prepares for parties "I probably serve more filet than - anything. else since it can be cut with a fork and won't take up Aoo much room on the plate.
