City Club Calendar CORPUS CHRISTi TIMES, Mon., Aug. 16, 1971 ,7-B Shower Honors Bride-To-Be ^ DEAR FOLKS: I was visiting my neighbor Dbris :Maynard this morning, · and would you believe that she was baking meringue pie "*,, --shells like I have never seen *,Before? And I mean never. " (I've wasted more eggs than ,,-you can shake a stick at, trying to make these shells.) '"-'1, she showed me her se; from start to finish and 'tis: ':%£ Take four egg whites and let , ,theni sit in your mixing bowl I. until they reach room temper,. v :;ature. Then beat them at.full *. speed until stiff and dry and they stand up in peaks. She says you cannot overbeat ·- them! ; '-'-SLOWLY- add- one cup of sugar--beating all the while-' and then add one teaspoon of ' : vanilla and one teaspoon of E L O I S E s Given for Meringues white vinegar and beat again until extremely dry and stiff. -Using" the BACK (that's upside down, so listen and heed her w o r d s) of her UN- GRSASED aluminum cooky sheet! (you can also use the bottom of a pizza, pan, etc.), she plopped this'angel stuff in six great globs. Don't put them too close together. They grow to over twice their size when cooked. . . ' She then took a spoon and made little "wells" (or holes) in the center of each to hold the upcoming goodies, and baked them oh the MIDDLE shelf of her oven at ONLY 250 degrees F. for about an hour or until a pinkish beige color. This will not look anything like meringue on a pie. The tips don't get darker. Now the top secret: Before removing them from *369* VALUE K1NGSIZE SET DIRECT FACTORY TO HOME PRICES LUXURY QUILTED 10 PC.

Be sure it's NOT sticky. If any wells are, they need more baking. Using a metal spatula, she carefully scoops them off the cooky sheet, the MINUTE they come out of the oven, onto either a piece of waxed paper or directly onto the dessert plates themselves. She very carefully explained that if you let these set even a few seconds while you answer that phone they will break. 'Tis true, I didn't believe it but made her waste one so I could try. Don't waste your egg whites and energy, gals, just lake my word for it. These shells are very fragile, folks, so handle them with tender loving care. They might have tiny cracks but the fruit hides that! I promise you, they won't ever weep; not even tomorrow will they cry! Doris fills the shells with strawberries and , tops each one with whipped cream, or, svhen strawberries are out of season, she fills them with canned or fresh peaches. You know, sometimes people give you these recipes, but you come home and do them in your own oven and they don't work. Take no offense, Doris, my love, but I tried it in our own oven right after I left your house. I thought perhaps I couldn't do it as easily as you. I envy people like you who do everything with ease I rilled my shells with a few spoonfuls of chocolate pudding, a dip of vanilla ice cream and another dab of BOXED (yeah, I use it) "choc pud." I think these goodies would also be wonderful filled with a mixture of sliced bananas and that boxed inexpensive dessert topping. Could even let a bit of vanilla ice cream partially melt, and stir in the bananas or peaches. Her husband Jack snitches a plain shell every once in a while and says they are great just plain. So on my second batch, I took Jack's word for it and made the "boats" smaller, just made ttny blops like drop cookies. Bakes in a shorter time, but he's got the right idea . . . 'swonderful!!! Thanks oodles for the recipe and the cup of coffee, ol' dear. I'm sure all our friends will love you, too, and wish they could have seen you whip up this truly elegant dish.

Man's Job Trips Up Wife By DONNA KANEY © Chicago Doily News CHICAGO -- The brides who depend on the "you-and-your- marriage" manuals are in for a surprise because of what those" books don't have to say about the out-of-town trip. The first one is likely to hit your happy home shortly after the onset of dishpan hands and scrubber's knees. Hubby will arrive from the office, open his now-scuffed attache case, point to an - itinerary and proudly proclaim, "I am going out of town." This, young brides, marks the beginning of some rather curious goings-on I like to call "business-trip syndrome." At first he will show all the proper guilt about leaving you alone and disrupting your plans. There will be hours spent listing whom to call and "vyhat to do ifs," a burglar- foiling and house-locking demonstration, and the packing of every conceivable shirt and tie. This culminates in a tearful good-by and "good luck" at the airport. Welcome Return Upon his return, assuming you have survived the too- quiet house and eating twinkles for a week,'hubby will smother you with kisses, tell you what a drag it all was, and shower you with restaurant 'menus, airline artifacts and, of course, a present (nine times out of ten costume jewelry). This type of behavior, however, deteriorates in direct proportion to the frequency of the business trip.

They are not. You tell him to find a laundry in New York. Note, by this time, hubby is trained to pack his own suitcase. Wife no longer must contemplate tearful good-by at the airport, since hubby mumbles something about grabbing a cab. Consoling Note The conversation winds up with some consoling remark like "Don't forget to sprinkle the lawn" or, "I know you have eight people coming for dinner Saturday night, but I'm sure you can handle it." Click. Gone again. . In this phase of the syndrome, if you want to find out when hubby is coming home, you must call Ms office. They ususally know. When hubby does appear, his only gifts are tales of his great trip and a suitcase full o f ' dirty underwear. But take heart young wives, for there are compensations for your suffering. Like getting the whole bed to yourself. Like getting the bathroom first and last in the morning. He will never have to know that, left to your own devices, you don't make the bed, pick up your clothes or do dishes. You get to be just you for a few days! I might add. though, that you must allow about six hour's leeway before hubby's return to do five days' worth of laundry and the dusting you've ignored. Sure, it gets lonely. But you'll adjust to the .business trip, if you regard it with a simple', philosophical attitude--like mine: how many of your friends can eat a pound of chocolate chip cookies for dinner and get away with it?
