Mr. Oliver was de fermined to enter the hospital at his home town of Emmetsburg. He drove the 100 miles by himself, reached the operating table with 15 minutes to spare before his appendix might have ruptured. A "company dinner" always takes some special planning. But even when it's for a big jcrowd, entertaining needn't be a lot of fuss and bother, says Jewel Graham, extension nutritionist at Iowa State College. Giving your friends a good time when they come to your house is often easier when you keep the preparations simple. One way is to serve a buffet meal. Then there's no setting a long table with individual places. And your guests take care of serving themselves, at the same time moving around and visiting with each other. When your meal is served buffet style you're certain the party will have a friendly informal atmosphere. Of course, buffet service isn't only for informal occasions, Miss Graham points out. You can make it quite elaborate—for a wedding, an anniversary party or a reception. But it lends itself ideally to Sunday night suppers and for covered dish or potluck luncheons which are always informal. Make The Table Pretty The term "buffet" for this type of service began in the days when the meal was served from the buffet or sideboard. Nowadays you use your dining room table. Maybe you'll push it up against the wall and arrange the decorations at the back against the wall. Remember, as much at the buffet meal as at any other, the table is the center of interest so make it as pretty as you can. Of course at an informal occasion peasant linens (unless you use the bare table and paper napkins), bright colored pottery and wooden salad bowls are right at home. The centerpiece might be an arrangement of fruit or vegetables or of flowers such as zinnias. When it's a more dress-up occasion, you'll be getting out your best linens and your nicest dishes, glassware and silver. To go along with those, daintier flowers 'from your garden will look prettiest. Sweet peas, snapgradons and cosmos are good possibilities. Keep It Convenient One of • the good reasons for serving a meal buffet style is to keep it easy—both for you and the guests. So as you're planning, keep convenience in mind. Two courses are enough—a main course and a dessert course, with a beverage. Whatever you have to drink may be served along with the main course at the table. Of if the buffet table is very crowded, it may be served at a smaller table or even passed among the guests on trays. When you arrange your buffet table, keep in mind the convenience of your guests. They will pass around the table either to the left or the right as you wish. If they move to the left the right hand is toward the table, a convenience when guests are serving themselves. The main dish usually goes at the end of the table. Set a stack of six or eight plates near it, and have some member of the family bring in others as you need them. The other foods—salad, vegetables, relishes, rolls—go along the side of the table within easy reach. If you arrange food in individual portions the serving dishes will look; attractive even after several people have served themselves. Try arranging slices of meat so they look attractive and are easy to pick up. Or serve the meat in individual portions. Salads are easily molded separately or served in individual lettuce cups. A study of a two-century list of important weeds in the United States shows that 108 came from foreign countries.
