How about a buffet meal, with made-ahead dishes and family and guests helping helping themselves? Here's our menu suggestion: EASTER DINNER Hot Tomato Crisp Crackers Broth Baked Stuffed Sliced Ham Potatoes Molded Cottage Cheese Salad with Cranberry Garnish Celery and Radishes Lemon or Lime Pic Coffee The tomato broth is easy. You simply heat tomato juice and adc seasonings. Try dried crushed basi or basil seasoning powder. Or adc bay leaf, a few peppercorns, whole clove, some celery leaves and coarsely grated carrot—strain of course, before serving. Garnish the broth with sliced pimie'nto stuffed olives. And as an accompaniment to it serve thin round crackers; or, if you can get them some of the delicious cheese sticks that come in tin boxes from England. To make life easy for the cook- probably Mother—use a canned or fully-cooked ready-to-eat ham and serve it sliced cold, or heat and glaze it. You'll need a recipe for the sal ad—and we are giving it to you. We recommend it particularly for this Easter dinner because it sets quickly. You can mold the salad mixture in a square cake pan and garnish it with cutouts of ready- prepared cranberry jelly. Or if you have some Mary-Ann molds, spoon the salad into those to chill, then unmoid at serving time and fill the indentations with ready-prepared whole cranberry sauce. Although we've listed celery and radishes on the menu just before the dessert, put them on the table with the Tomato Broth, for munching. But make the munching festive by letting the celery curl, the radishes flower. Here's how. Cut cleaned celery stalks into three- inch lengths, then make narrow parallel slits in each piece starting at one end and cutting almost to the other end. Put the celerj lengths in water to cover, adc some Ice cubes and salt, refrigerate. After a while, the ends wil curl. Drain well and serve. Scrub the radishes in cold watei and cut off the root ends. Then score the skin with a small sharp knife, making your slits narrow a the top to resemble tulip petals Pull back scored "petals" almosl to the stem with the knife. Give the radishes the ice-water treat ment suggested for the celery Drain well and serve. Easter deserves a dessert with springtime color. So how about a lemon or lime pie? You can use a packaged lemon pie-and-pudding mix for the former; the latter wil need fresh lime rind and juice anc might be a made-from-scratch airj chiffon concoction. Mints, in Easter colors—yellow pink, layendar. white and green— will make a "fun" ending. If you are planning on having spring flowers on your table—yellow daffodils, pink tulips, purple hyacinth white narcissus and green leave; —the mints will complement youi Automatic washer ,V!fcterU*el Conftol!
