PAGE FOURTEEN BLTTHEVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8/1941 School Bells Ring For the Lunchbox Sandwich Spreads Art Fresh If Packed in Enameled Sforage School day* frequently mean lunchbox -packing days for busy mothers. It is comforting to know, however, that a little beforehand planning and preparation can remove much of the confusion from the dally exit of the lunchbox. One biff help 1* to arrange a lunchbox corner in the kitchen. Everything needed can be stored within arm's reach. Reserve a cupboard shelf for limchboxes, thermos bottles, paper napkins and cups, wax paper and such things. Have the bread board, slicing knife and cookie Jnr nearby, And save one aelf in the refrigerator for the various cold foods used in packing lunches. Since sandwiches are the main- aiay of the packed lunch, it is a help to make up an assortment of .spreads In advance. Those small porcelain enameled storage pans now available in hardware and department stores are just the right size to hold a generous amount of spread. Whenever possible, mix the spreads right in the enameled storage pans to save time and dish* washing. These enameled containers are designed with flat covers to save refrigerator space. 1C de^lrfd, they may be kept on a tray In the refrigerator so they can be easily removed when it's time (o make sandwiches. Here are a few spread combinations which will rate high with the school crowd: ground ham mixed mayonnaise to moisten; mashed liv- with chopped pickle and enough er sausage with catsup and a dash of Worcestershire sauce; mashed baked beans with catsup; ground nut butter mixed with pickle relish raisins, dates and nuts; and pea- or chili sauce. A nutritious lunch pattern might include hearty sandwiches (two or three kinds), crisp raw vegetables or fruit, a satisfying dessert and R beverage. Wrap the sandwiches individually in wax paper. Stack edgewise in th* lunchbox so the filling will not be forced into the bread by the •weight t>f another sandwich. Crisp carrot sticks, lettuce wedges. celery, whole tomaoes or fresh fruit add texture contrast to the box meal. They'll stay crisp and fresh Jf wrapped separate! yin wax paper. Milk, milk drinks, fruit or vegetable julc*s or hot soupe are good •elections for ihe thermos bottle. The dessert might be eaj>y-to-pack fnjrt with cookies or cup cakej.
