Farm Woman's Column Mississippi county home-makers, turning their thoughts to keeping cool while cooking and serving food not too hot and heavy during the August weather, should keep In mind Ihe need for simple yet well balanced meals, economics In food and fuel, and comfort at mealtime, says Miss Cora Lee Coleman, county 1 home demonstration agent. Meals should include during ihc day a green and a yellow vegetable; tomaloes, citrus fruits, raw cabbage, melons, or strawberries; other vegetables and fruit; milk; meal, fish, poultry, dried peas, beans, or nuts; whole ssrain cereal; and butter. Fresh vegetables nnd fruits arc natural summer foods neither rich nor caloric-loaded, Miss Coleinnn explained, in recommending them for summer meals. She suggested raw juicy fruits made Into quick, appetizing desserts and raw crisp vegetables, such H.S cin-rot, turnip or cucumber strips, wedges of cab j bilge, pieces of cauliflower, shredded beets, or quartered tomatoes be served often. If iced beverages nrc the family choice, they should not be allowed In prevent Die family from getting Ihe regular quota of milk In some form, whether 'in cheese or ice crc-am or cooked In foods. Milk itself is refreshing when served cold, she suggests, and should be cold lo keep safely. Care should be tnketi to ensure perishable foods against souring or otherwise spoiling in order to prevent waste and, even more Important, to guard against food polston ing, the home demonslrntlon agent said. Dishes that take short, cooklni and little preparation, for inslanc many egg dishes, often have th greatest appetic appeal on a ho clay, she reminds. Cooking on to of the stove, rather than baklncr leaves the kitchen and the coo' cooler than when the oven Is used However when oven cooking i necessary, the kitchen will not hav. :i chance to become so heated I the baking schedule Is planned sc Ihe kilchen does not heat up mor< oflcn than necessary and if tin oveti Is started just in lime to b< at the correct temperature whei Ihe food is ready lo bake. Oas, • electricity, or wood will bi saved if the heat Is not used untl U is needed. Miss Colemnn recommends thai food be brought lo a boll iu high heat, th cn the heal reduced just enough to keep the food boiling. If there is a porch or similar place that is cooler than where meals arc regularly served, a :hangc of setting may add to comfort at mealtime. Serving cafeteria style, letting the members of thc amily fin their plates at the stove saves one person from making Mirny trips back and forth on a lot day, she adds. F. S.A.
