Over tht Backyard Fence By tLSIfe BftANBtN Hotnt Economies A««nt The wisest meal planner keeps preparations of the meal in mind as she plans for flavor, texture, color and good nutrition for the members of her family. Talent, time, and energy are resources to be cherished and wisely used. Efficiency in use of these resources can be cultivated. Decide where short cuts via todays j .convenience foods can be used j without loss of eating quality of •the finished product. Be adventurous in experimenting with convenience foods as an aid to creating imagination in meal planning and cooking. Here are some easy 'answers to serving foods with a •flair. Creamy mayonnaise or salad 'Stressing'blends easily with any favorite liquid dressings, sour cream, chopped chives or onion, seasoning salts, shredded Par- meason or cheddar cheese — all quick flavor additions to a basic dressing that bear the mark of individuality. Use your individuality to add that extra sparkle to 'your family meals. Serve chilled with tossed greens, fresh vegetables or fruit salads. For a delightful sause, heat any one of these combinations and spoon over hot cooked vegetables, meat sandwiches, broiled or baked fish or poultry. Regular, hot or hickory smoke '.flavored barbecue sause lends an outdoor flavor to indoor cooking. Try mixing barbecue sauce with ground beef for patties; substitute it for part of liquid and all ' of seasonings in meat loaf mixtures; use as a marinade for beef chicken and fish; brush on meats and poultry while broiling. I like to use the smoke sause flavor in baked beans. Spoon whipped cream cheese cr any one of the flavor varieties of these cheeses into hot cooked vegetable!;, such as green beans, mashed potatoes, sliced carrots or peas.

For even quicker results, use yellow or white cake mix (one layer size) for the cake batter. That everyday dessert, fruit compote, takes on a new appeal when topped or mixed with miniature marshmallows. Canned fruits, too, are quickly enhanced by a sprinkle of marshmallows. * * *• If tver »h«rt was an example of haste making waste, it's in the cutting of a garment. Unless a seamstress takes time to cut accurately, she'll have trouble later in the sewing and spend a lot more time adjusting for the careless cutting job. It's much easier to sew along a smooth scam edge than a ragged, uneven one. Also be sure the pattern is laid precisely on the straight of the goods. Otherwise, the garmet will pull out of shape often during the sewing process. For the woman who likes to cut several garments at once from the same pattern, laying out the pattern and cutting arc the most important steps. The seamstress must be sure she has all the necessary pieces. With so many single and double layers of fabric it's easy to forget a second sleeve or collar facing. Extra time will be needed for sections that must be laid on a lengthwise fold of material and for accurately making the pattern perforations. If you are cutting more than one fabric at one time it is important to pin the edges together to keep the material from slipping. Do not try to cut more than six layers of lightweight materials at one time. Even six layers will require a pair of sturdy, bent handle shears and a strong hand. And here's a final hint. If you plan to cut several garments at once, select a pattern with simple, straight lines. You'll find it's easier to manage. 4-H Club Notes ST.
