From Maine: Potato Meat Roll- By GAYNOR MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Editor Here's a grand dish from Maine cooks. They are proud of their po- sal Planning Bothers Novice Consider Several At One Time Meal planning for the novice cook can be a chore. To ease this situation, Reba Staggs, home economist, comes up with a few suggestions. First of all, by all means do plan meals, says Miss Staggs. Consider several at one time, rather than working from meal to meal. Begin with your meat dish. When you've decided on a meat cut. add your vegetables. When possible it's wise to take advantage of special meat buys. Likewise, make use of fruits and vegetables in season. Introduce new foods into your menus. Actually there are more than 200 different retail cuts of meat. Learn to identify them. Study meat charts and ask your meat man the names of cuts you do not know. In planning your menu consider t.he shapes of the various foods. Naturally you do not want meat balls, boiled potatoes and Brussels sprouts at one meal. They alt are of the same shape. Likewise, consider varied textures and pleasing color combinations. Use your range to the fullest extent. Plan open meals, broiler meals, nnd range-top meals. And lastly, arrange the food on your platter and on the table in an attractive manner. This finishing touch can make the difference between a mediocre and an outstanding meal. When you are making candy, don't beat it before it has cooled. The ideal temperature for beating is when the saucepan feels lukewarm n the palm of the hand.
