BY CAROLINE COE
More than half the fun at picnio or
beach party is cooking the food.
A camp or beach fire is very little
trouble to make and many good
warm things to eat may be prepared.
The picnic basket must be packed,
by one person; and this one must
know just what will be served and
what will be necessary to prepare it
Most baskets are overloaded with un
necessary things. Knives, forks and
spoons, paper plates and cups, nap
kins and lunch cloth must be put in,
and if cooking is to be done we must
also have a frying pan, a long-handled
fork, a spoon, a sharp knife, salt
and pepper. These, with a few eggs,
a jar of butter, bacon or ham, sar
dines, a cup of jelly; bread or rolls,
cheese and marshmallows, with the
pot of coffee will make a wholesome
meal for any company.
Picnic Coffee.
The coffee should be mixed at
home, allowing six tablespoonfuls of
ground coffee for each seven cups
needed. Put the ground coffee in a
bowl, add the white of one egg and
one cup of cold water, mix thorough
ly and turn Into the pot; tie napkin
over top and "nose" and pack pot In
the basket
When ready to boil add the other
six cups of cold water and set on hot
iBtone or grate over camp fire. Boil
three minutes, set back on stone to
"melt" and'keep hot
Do not put the coffee over fire too
soon. The entire process should not
take over twenty minutes.
If canned cream is to be used, turn
the contents of can Into a cup or dish
and whip it lively, turn into cups and
then .pour the hot coffee over the
cream.
Sauted Sardines.
Open can of sardines, pour the oil
into skillet, add the juice of half a
lemon. When oil and lemon juice get
not lay tne saraines in pan (be care
ful not to break them) , and brown on
each side.
Placed between buttered rolls or
bread, a most appetizing sandwich is
the result
Cheese Sandwiches
Butter slices of bread and spread
each with a thin layer of grated
cheese, put the slices together and
toast over hot coals. Served with a
cup of coffee makes.a full meal.
Fried Egg Sandwich.
Heat skillet over fire, add table
spoonful of butter or bacon drippings.
Break egg into cup and -turn into hot
fat; pull the skillet from hot fire and
allow the egg to cook slowly. Butter
two slices of bread, place the fried
egg between; salt and peper to suit
taste.
If a hot sandwich is desired, santa
in pan in which the egg was fried.-- -
