MEATLESS MENUS FOR LENT
By Biddy Bye

"Is what we chiefly need.
Pepper and vinegar besidej
Are very good indeed."

pare them rather than in the ingredi
ents. Lenten Menus For One Day.

son with' salt, and mix to stiff
dough with bread crumbs. Shape
into a roll, and bake in-a "well but
tered pan. Serve with tomato sauce
or add chopped onions to thebeans
