Open Until 9 Friday Night Although the month of June is recognized as "national dairy month,'" how important it is always to remember and keep up the daily requirement of milk products in our menus. Plan summer dishes that will intrigue the appetite as well as attract the eye. Creamed dishes are attractive if you remember to keep the meat, fish, eggs or vegetables in rather large pieces so the finished dish has color as well as texture personality. When fresh fruits are in season, serve them often in short cakes. Not just strawberry; any berry lends itself to a rich biscuit, split, butter and ready to many fruits, sliced and sweetened. For something quick one can never go wrong serving ice cream over sponge cake topped with diced chilled, sweetened fruit. Sprinkle nut meats over fruit ice cream and chopped salted almonds over chocolate sauce on vanilla. Floating Island is a real old- time favorite that is easy to make; is colorful and appetizing. Meringues 6 tablespoons sugar, 0 egg whites stiffly beaten, 2 cups scalded milk. Beat egg whites until stiff, and then fold in the sugar. Now drop by tablespoons on the hot milk. Cook uncovered until firm. (This takes about 5 minutes). Lift the meringues out carefully. Place them on a platter and chili.' Custard 2 eggs slightly beaten 4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups milk scalded i teaspoon vanilla Combine eggs, sugar and salt. Gradually add the hot milk (which was used to cook the meringues). Cook in the top of a double- boiler (over hot but not boiling water) stirring constantly^ ^until custard coats the spoon. Add vanilla and chill. Pour cold custard into a glass bowl and carefully place chilled meringues on top. Put a bit of red jelly on top of each island for the final touch. You can bake a berry pic without getting the juice all over the oven if you set the pie on a cookie pan.
