MEAL ELABORATE OR VERY SIMPLE Globe-Gazette Food Expert Offers Suggestions to Assist Busy Housewife in Preparing Her Holiday Meal. Easter Sunday means more than going to church, bedecked in a new outfit. Jeanette Beyer, the Globe-Gazette's food expert, has a number of ideas about cooking- the Easter Sunday dinner and brings them to you in this week's table talk. There are all kinds from the elaborate ones to those which will be simple to prepare. 3 SOUTH FEDERAL AVE. What do we get out of it, this preparation of Easter dinner, Sunday dinners, or any dinner at all? Consider the labors of mother! There must be fresh and spotless linen. The silver and glassware must have its last minute polishing; The careful setting of the table is always important, arranging the dishes and the glass and the silver so that all is neat and attractive and uncrowded. The centerpiece is chosen with discrimination. And then the menu -- mother shops for the best bargains in Friday's food specials, for the highest quality the market offers, undoubtedly lugging part of them home herself. And then the cooking--the peeling and scraping of vegetables, the careful attention to the roast, the washing of the salad greens, the preparation of the dessert. Maybe on Saturday, mother begins the cooking/ Certainly it must start early on Sunday. And Then What? When the culmination of all this thought and preparation is on the table, what happens? Everyone eats and eats, because the food is so delicious, and mother refills dishes, and pours water. In a few minutes she carries off the dirty plates and brings the desserts. In but'another few minutes, all rise from the table and then mother spends most of the afternoon washing the dishes. If mother is a rapid eater, she may have consumed some of her dinner too. Yet no one needs to pity mother for of course she doesn't need to spend her time and energy like this. She could" have opened up a few cans of something or other.- Or just for the sake of nutrition, she could set out cheese and bread, raw carrots and apples, lettuce, millc and butter on a bare table, with only ten minutes of labor and no forethought. Why don't we all do that? Yet, how many Sundays, holidays and week days have you and I spent like mothers! . . . . . I see no excuse nor virtue in it, except enjoyment. Cooking is one of the few creative things which manufacturers have left to housewives, and if we enjoy making attractive, delicious food, that is our "sweet American privilege." But of course, few of us want to spend every day in the kitchen. Your Easter H A T Is Here!! OUR BUYERS HAVE BEEN WORKEVG FOR TOP DAY and NIGHT, SELECTING only the SMARTEST MERCHANDISE OBTAINABLE.

Specially priced at 3 SOUTH FEDERAL This creative urge only comes at intervals. So here are some menus, not complicated, but festive for this happy day. Nearly all have prepar- tions which may be made the day before. Some may be tucked into the oven before churchtime and drawn out, already for eating when the service is over: EASTER DINNER in Yellow, ViiiU and Green. Cherry and Grapefruit Cup Crown Roast of Lamb or Roast Leg Lamb Mint Sauce Glazed Carrots and Peas Oven Browned Potatoes Hot Rolls Radishes Stuffed Olives Green Onions Tomato Jelly Salad Pecan Cake Lemon Ice Pecan Cake. \» lb. pecans 2',3 cups powdered sugar 1 1-3 cup pastry flour 6 egg whites '/f teaspoon cream tartar Chop nuts and mix with sugar and flour. Beat Egg whites until stiff and add to other ingredients. Place in paper lined tins and bake in a moderate oven, 350 degrees F. This is rather chewy with a delicious flavor. II. Beef Pot Roast with Three or Four Vegetables Baking Powder Biscuits Honey Head Lettuce with French Dressing Orange Souffle with Golden Sauce Beef Pot Roast. 3 pounds beef from rump or chuck Flour, salt and pepper 2 thin slices of salt pork Carrots, onion, celery, etc. 3 cups boiling water Wipe the meat with a damp cloth. Dredge with flour, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fry out the pork and sear the entire surface of the meat in the hot pork fat, or other drippings. Place meat on a rack in a roaster or pot. Surround with diced vegetables. Add boiling water. Cover tightly and bake in a slow oven, 300 degrees F. about four hours. Or if a. heavy iron pot is used, this may be cooked over a very low fire, taking care that there is sufficient water to prevent any chances'of burning. When done, remove to a hot platter, strain out the vegetables and make a thickened gravy of the remaining liquid. Orange Souffle 1 cup stale bread crumbs, free from crusts i-i cup milk Juice of two oranges and grated rind of one 3 eggs % cup sugar Save out two tablespoons of orange juice for the sauce. Rub the bread crumbs through a coarse sieve. Soften in milk, add the grated orange rind and juice. Separate the eggs. Save one egg yolk for sauce. Beat two yolks until thick and three' whites until stiff. Add sugar to beaten yolks and com- ·bine with orange mixture. · Carefully fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Fill custard cups 2-3 full and set in a pan of hot water. Bake in a moderate oven 325 degrees F., until firm. Serve with Golden Sauce. 3 tablespoons butter. % cup powdered sugar 1 egg yolk 2 tablespoons orange juice 3 tablespoons cream Cream the butter with powdered sugar. Add unbeaten yolk of egg and beat until mixture is very h'ght. Then add alternately, a little at a time, the orange juice and the cream. Set the bowl of sauce over hot water and stir until smooth. HI. Baked Ham ' Sweet Potatoes baked with Apples Buttered Spinach Cracked Wheat Bread Cucumber and Pineapple Jelly Salad Chocolate Ice Box Cake BaUed Ham. Plunge the ham into boiling water, and when it comes to a boil, reduce the temperature and simmer very slowly. Add an orange, cut in slices, peel and all, and an apple cut up. This fruit enhances the flavor marvelously. One needs to allow 2o minutes of simmering for each pound the ham weighs. If possible, let it cool in the water. It is very delicious, sliced cold this way. To bake cut the rind from the cooked harn, and bake slowly, 300 to 350 degrees F., with the fat side up, basting with a mixture of 1 cup vinegar with 1 cup water in which ham was boiled, and 1 teaspoon of dry mustard. After a half hour, sprinkle the fat surface with brown sugar, score it into diamonds with a sharp knife, and garnish it with whole cloves. Continue baking for another half hour, or until the sugar begins to glaze. Chocolate Ice Box Cake. 4 squares unsweetened chocolate '.« cup sugar (UiTllillllct! "n I'Jiiil' ''!» tlur ideas/ WERE OUT OF DATE We certainly have been in a groove at our house. I'm mostly to blame because I kept saying that we had to save money on food. So my wife did her part. And one of her little savings was on coffee--which wasn't so good. Of course we knew that if we drank Hills Bros., Coffee we'd have something that tasted right always. But we had the idea that it cost more than we could afford to pay. Well, the other day my wife found out that our ideas were miles out-of-date. Listen -- d o you know that she was able to buy Hills Bros. Coffee at practically the same price that we had been paying for our many experiments? Well, we learned our lesson but it still burns me up to think that we could have been drinking Hills Bros. Coffee all the time- Protect Health . ..
