"Thanksgiving Leftover" WINNERS ! ! Mrs S. W. Nelson ALGONA Mrs Ken Geilenfeld ALGONA A surprising number of entries in 1 h e Thanksgiving Leftover category brought some wonderful new ideas to the judges and a tie for winning position in the Algona Merchants-Upper Des Moines Recipe Contest. The judges were really thrilled to s«e Jo-' many outrtanding recipes for leftovers. From the number of entries, it appears that the community has some mighty thrifty cooks that can brew a tasty meal for practically nothing. Final honors and the cash awards went to Mrs S. W. Nelson of Algona and Mrs Ken Geilenfeld also of Algona. Mrs Nelson supplied a simple - to - make, mighty-tasty recipe called "Turkey and Oyster Pie." Mrs Geilenfeld on the other hand uses mushrooms and apples with her turkey to make a delicious leftover dish called "Turkey Curry." Both recipes are printed at the left and would be well worth clipping for future reference . . . since Thanksgiving is just around the corner. There'll be no regrets that such a big turkey was bought for Thanksgiving. Next week's classification sounds like a good one for these cold blustery days when you feel like staying home with vour oven going . . . it's yeast breads.
