On a bright morning In May, Mrn.
Blake and her neighbors, "Somewhere
on Maul," are again sewing and dis
cussing household matters. ,'
"I tried some of those recipea for
cooking beans; I wanted to try the
one with cheese but I didn't kiow
how many beans to use," said rdrs.
"Why, I always guess at them. "i,ou
don't have to use any particular
"You girls," Interrupted Mr. Dtenn,
"are two types of cooks. Mating nl
ways measure everything 'by her eye';
while Margaret always has to measure
with a cup or spoon. For that reason,
It la hard for Margaret to follow Jour
recipes, Marian. I can Bympahize
with you, Margaret, for I, too, like de
finite proportions. I have worked
them out for this very rerpe."
"Walt Mrs. IV-am" said Margaret.
"until L (fpfclily note-book."
-'-"tthat kind of a book have you?"
"I have taken this partly used ledg
er. I started with the summary of the
five food principles which you gave us
one morning. I have left a number of
pages for other general notes. Here
are the bean recipes with space for
notes on one half of the page. By
h atria r.r thia nnp with cheese I
will write the proportion which you
are going to give us."
"First let us see what else you
"After leaving several more pages
for beans I have written or pasted In,
all the recipes I could find for carrots.
Here are on'ons, next I will put sweet
potatoes. I am going to collect In this
book all the recipes I have for our
common fruits and vegetables."
"I have nearly this same plan," said
Mrs. Dean, "only Instead of copying
every recipe into my book I catalogue
all the recipes that are In my cook
books, thus saving space and the time
of copying. But here are the propor
tions that you wanted."
"For each cup of beans take one
third cup grated cheese and one and
one half tablespoon cream; mix the
cheese through the beans, place In
buttered baking dish, pour me cream
over the mixture and cover the top
with buttered crumbs.
"If you will experiment a little,
Margaret, you will find that you will
Boon be able to figure out the propor
tions that your family likes. Some
people would like less cheese than I
"There Is another thing I want toask
you about, Mrs. Dean. Jack and the
children are asking so many questions
about different phases of this dieting
problem. How, for instance can I ex
plain in a simple way what a calory
"This article by Mrs. Janet M. Hill
will answer that question. Bead It to
Marfan and then take it nome wiui
"I shall be away for a couppie oi
weeks but 1 will send you some articles
to rend and talk over."
"I wish," said Mrs. Blake "that some
one would figure out a system for the
distribution of our foods. We had Just
settled down to having tnro cakes for
lirp.nkfnHt Instead of toast. I got Olie
lot of taro but I can't get any more."
"I know, it is trying. ine same
lliine is true of the Kula vegetables
and the Haiku pineapples.
