Lemon juice on spinach or other cooked greens is a good substitute for Hollandaise. * * * FRUIT PIES .... or cobblers taste better if a few thin slices of lemon are baked with the fruit. They accentuate the tart tangy flavor which makes fruit fillings so delicious. * * * TO FLUFF .... an omelet, add a half teaspoon of lemon juice to the egg whites after they have been beaten,; and to kill the "canned" taste in whipped evaporated milk, add a few drops of lemon before whipping. * * * A DASH .... of lime or lemon tones up the flavor of honeydew melon and lime or lemon sherbets are good eating throughout the year.

See how fast you improve. I When Mr. and Mrs. Charles You• mans and their children. Mary K. i nnd Chuck, moved to Carroll in June of 195R, they were not newcomers, although it was a different experience for the children. The family home had boon at West- 5idr since Mary K,. now 12 years old. was a baby. Chuck is 7. Mrs. Youmans — Mnry E. — has made hr.r home comfortable and ! up-to-date, with enough family tra- ;difion showing through. FV>r exam- I pie is the walnut picture frame made more than 100 years ago by Mr. Youmans' grandmother with a decorative process called "punch- work." Mrs. Youmans has used this as one of her principal decorations, having converted it into a shadowbox and arranged shelves in it for an assortment of bric-a-brac, some old and some new. On the other hand, she has an old-fashioned organ, probably one of the most elaborate in this community. Without anyone in her family interested in playing it, this family heirloom does not have a useful purpose, considering its size'. So it has hr.d to be placed in a back room, and a more serviceable arrangement made of the dining room. She follows this in most of the family life: if the furniture or practice or custom gets out of proportion to its use or family satisfaction, it is replaced. As an example, one might use her present hobby of basketry. She enjoys the weaving and creativity in making different designs, but ohe docs not make baskets just to be taking time. "Many persons I've talked to about baskets seem to think that weaving results in making baskets and more baskets — but that isn't so," she commented. And she demonstrated with a handsome tray, a fruit compote, a popcorn bowl set, a round woven tray and an arrangement to carry three relish dishes. With the current popularity of woven baskets, one can visualize Time* Herald, Carroll, la. mj Monday, Ocf. 12, 1959 / endless possibilities for this material: holders of all kinds, waste baskets, the mode of serving snacks and "finger" foods from napkins in baskets. A weaver can find end- loss means of expressing design and use for baskets. Much of Mrs. Youman's craft has gone to family and friends for gifts, and she's still looking for and thinking up ideas. But neither does she spend all her time in this project —- there will he no baskets on baskets, in the manner some attribute to crochet hobbyists — doilies on doilies. Last summer the Youmans family added a new room to their house at 111 East Eighth Street, and Mrs. Youmans applied and finished the woodwork. Working with wood is not new to her — witness the furniture in the bedroom which she has blonded and given a satiny finish, or the buffet. Her story is not strictly the story of a homebody, however. Like most mothers, she knows that the family lives in a community, and she accordingly has entered heartily into church and other activities. In fact, it was in hearing about (he basket weaving classes sponsored by the Newcomers' club that she found this new hobby. Although rot a newcomer, she accepted the invitation to any interested person, and enjoyed the classes immensely. She has recently begun work in St. Anthony Hospital Auxiliary, serving in the coffee shop. At Trinity Episcopal Church she has recently become a member of the Altar Guild, and next year will serve Trinity Guild as secretary. She substitutes at the church school, also. She was born in Carroll County near Templeton, her parents being Martin Jacobsen and the late Mrs. Jacobsen, who moved to Carroll in 1954. Mrs. Jacobsen died three years ago. ] The maternal family farm ; known near Templeton as the Mark j Schrum farm, just recently was sold. Her Uncle George retired to Carroll about two years ago, the iast of the Schrums to have farmed the land. One must not overlook one of the important members of the You- ninns family — their two-year-old granddaughter, Vicki, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vern Wilken of Wcstside. Jo Wilken is the oldest of the three Youmans children — Jo. Mary K. and Chuck. Mr. Youmans is a native of Fon du Lac. Wis., and the family makes regular trips to Sheboygan to visit their mother and grandmother. His work in Carroll County at first was traveling for Western Grocers, although since 1947 he has been an insurance man. representing Bankers Life and Casualty Co. Food, both for entertainment and evcry-day family is geared to serve a few or several. This family always has room for an "extra," whether it be for supper or an outdoor barbecue, or Sunday dinner. You'll notice this in the recipes Mrs. Youmans has selected as some of her standbys. This caramel corn^recipe (probably originally written as a "receipt") was her mother's and is "delicious." The chocolate cake came from a Dedham friend and "just never fails." The mushroom meat loaf is extraordinarily good and easy, the quick coffee cake is just that, and the Chinese Rocks are different — a recipe which she has adopted although originally found by her daughter.
