The wide variety of seasonings available on your grocer's shelf allows great opportunity to introduce exciting new flavors to your family. And you will find that the flavor of lamb blends especially well with many of our herbs. For example, with lamb try sweet marjoram, summer savory, rosemary, mint, dill and chives, says home economist Reba Staggs. This may be one herb alone, or in groups. However, a word to the novice, it's wise to start with one and experiment until you have found just the right amount of the right seasonings for your family's taste. It's always wiser to have too little seasoning rather than too much. Try the suggested seasonings with a lamb stew, with a ground Iamb loaf or patties, with roast lamb, braised lamb cubes or any of the creamed lamb dishes. Read Courier News Classified Ads. LADIES!

Barbecued with Charcoal by WICKER PRODUCTS Horntnville, Missouri Watch Spoilage Of Picnic Fare USDA Gives Warning About Chances of Food Poisoning By GAYNOR MADDOX NBA Food »nd Market! Editor Outdoor eating, picnics, church suppers, etc., can be wonderful fun. But the Department of Agriculture has Just sent out a warning, which if listened to, can prevent any cases of food poisoning. Here's what they say: Already this season cases of food poisoning have been reported as an aftermath of picnics of community meals. The mistaken belief that once food is cooked it will keep for hours, even in a warm place, seems to be responsible for many of these outbreaks each summer. Bacteriologists of the United State Department of Agriculture say, the safe rule to follow when cooked food must wait is: keep it chilled or keep it very hot — but never at a warm, in - between .emperature. They caution that oods which cause food poisonnig often show no signs of spoilage, so you can't rely on taste, odor or appearance. Especially subject to rapid and dangerous spoilage in a warm place are soft protein foods, especially those handled in preparation. These include soft custards, cream-filled pastries or cakes cooked salad dressing , stuffed eggs or egg salads, and all cooked meats, poultry and fish .These foods can't wait in picnics baskets or out on the table. Not for outdoor eating, but for de luxe dining at home, try this recipe from New .York City's Steak Joint in Greenwich Village.
