THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THIRTEEN This Boston. Cream. Pie Easily, Quickly Made By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor TRADITIONAL BOSTON- CREAM PIE can be made quickly these days with the help of bought cake, a package of one of the new instant puddings, and semi-sweet chocolate. While the dessert may not have all the nuances of flavor that come from doing all the work yourself, it is mighty good and will save you lots of time and energy when you are having company and timei s short. I find it handy to have a list of quick-to-make desserts for short-or:-er entertaining; if you try this recipe and enjoy it, you might like to set up such a file.

Both indicate a new trend: the authors tell how to prepare the menus step by step. Some cooks will want to follow these steps; some won't. The author of "Time to Entertain" (Little", Brown) is Charlotte Turgeon whose study of cookery in Paris enables her to make outstanding contributions to our own culinary scene. Fortunately Mrs. .Turgeon is well aware of the kind of entertaining that goes on in cities and small towns in this country; so her suggestions are practical. Her menus included inners for old friends and party dinners for four,' six, and eight; potluck suppers for four and six; luncheon and breakfast menus; weekend entertaining suggestions; menus for receptions and teas. Other good features are shopping lists and alternate recipe suggestions so that menus may be juggled to suit your own particular needs and preferences. "Dinners that Wait" by Betty Wason (Doubleday) features, main dishes that are delay-proof. Mrs. Wason, like Mrs. Turgeon, has eaten and cooked in Europe and her book pleasantly reflects her background. She knows good food and how to write about it, and you will be sure to enjoy her comments with her step-by-step directions. One of her recipes we should particularly like to recommend because it is similar to one of our own pet ideas. It is for Cocktail Pastries made from a rich cream cheese dough and filled with meat, fish, vegetables or cheese. Wonderful for parties! BLUEBERRY COCONUT SUNDAES and iced tea with mint mai lemon are ideal for summer night pleasure. Blueberry Sundae Is Rated 'Terrific' by the Younger Set COFFEE FROST QUICKIE Want to beat the heat with a cool easy-to-make summer drink? Combine instant coffee with milk instead of water, add sugar and vanilla ice cream. Top with mint leaves for tantalizing taste. By GAYNOR MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Editor We gave an end-of-the-term party for our youngest boy. He and his friends voted this blueberry sundae "terrific." But we must add that his parents and their friends enjoyed it, too. Coconut-Blueberry Snowball Sundae (Makes 4 servings) One pint vanilla ice cream J / 2 cup shredded coconut, blueberry sauce. . Scoop ice cream into balls. Roll in .coconut and place in chilled sherbet dishes. Top with blueberry sauce. Blueberry Sauce (Makes 2*4 cups) Two cups cultivated blueberries, washed and well-drained, 1 cup water, 4 teaspoons flour, % cup sugar, y 4 teaspoon salt, : / 2 teaspoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons butter or margarine, 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind. Bring 1 cup of the blueberries and water to a boil and simmer 3 minutes.. Combine flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and add to hot fruit. Add remaining berries; bring to a boil 'and cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Add butter and lemon rind. Chill thoroughly. A few weeks earlier The Dalton School, where our son goes, gave a Parents Dinner. It was so unusually well handled you may want to hear about it. The food was excellent, there was no confusion and the parents had a pleasant time together. It's not always that way with PTA dinners. In the school library, in the music room and in a conference room long tables covered with pink paper cloths were set up. On each table was a low pot of flowers. Service was buffet style. Hurry!

Only paper plates and cups were used. The menu: sliced cold turkey, roast beef and baked ham, baked beans, large bowls of salad made of lettuce, shredded white and purple cabbage, cucumbers and green pepper mixed with-French dressing, soft rolls, butter and margarine, apple strudel, coffee. Add Color to Your Meals With Use of Pimento Columbus discovered red pimentos (a type of sweet pepper) in the new world and took seeds back to Spain. Up to 1920, we imported al! the pimentos we used in salads and sandwiches and for garnishing from Spain. But less man 20 years ago, a farmer in Georgia began growing them from imported seeds and the Georgia Experiment Station improved this American strain. Now we have our American variety, smooth, heart-shaped, thick meat- ed, which is sold in jars and cans at all grocers. Gladys Gassert, a young woman from Atlanta, Ga., called on us last week and showed us how to use pimentos in several colorful ways. These are her recipes: Stuffed Pimentos One 7-ounce jar or can whole red pimentos, 1 can tuna, 1 can mushroom soup, paprika, & cup chopped olives, % cup bread crumbs. Mix soup, tuna, olives and % cup bread crumbs. Stuff pimentos and place in buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with rest of bread crumbs, dot with butter and bake 20 minutes at 450 degrees F. (hot joven). Pimento-Chicken Loaf (Serves 6) One and one-half cups cooked I chicken, chopped, 2 .whole pimen- i ios, chopped", 2 whole pimentos, i in strips, 1 egg, well beaten, & ! teaspoon salt, 74 cup evaporated J nr'lk, scalded, 1& cups mashed po- j tatoes, V 4 teaspoon paprika. j Add well-beaten egg, salt and j scalded milk to mashed potatoes. | Add chicken, chopped pimentos j ai)d paprika. Turn into greased ' baking dish and bake in moderate oven (350 degrees P.) until top is orowned. Garnish with pimento strips. Spread slices of bread, plain or toasted, with mayonnaise or -butter. Place lettuce leaves on one slice and top with whole pimentos from the jar or can. Pimentos on the shelf are always in season. OOO-H-H H Mom!
