COOL DISHES FOR HOT DAYS.
Heavy puddings should be given up
entirely during the summer. Fresh
fruit is an ideal dessert, with an occa
sional custard and old-fashioned rice
pudding, a sponge cake with whipped
cream and gelatine desserts, which
gives one quite a variety.
Potted beef is a meat which one
may prepare ?nd always have on
'hand in warm weather.
Potted Beef.-Purchase two pounds
:cf round steak, let lt summer where it
'will simply keep hot without boiling
?in a very little water. After cooking
.about there hours with the following
seasonings, chop and then pound to a
paste: Two tablespoonfuls of water,
four of butter, a quarter of a teaspoon
ful each of pepper and cinnamon, a ta
blespoonful of Worcestershire sauce
'and an onion chopped fine. After
pounding to a paste pack in jars and
cover with melted suet.
Jellied Fish.-Remove all the skin
and bones from a two-pound fish, chop
fine and stir in a little at a time a
quarter of a cup of cold water; add
.a teaspoonful of salt, the Juice of three
lemons, a tablespoonful of grated on
ion, twenty-four blanched almonds and
a few dashes of cayenne. When all
are well mixed, pack into a mold and
steam for an hour. Set aside on the
ice, and when cold turn out and gar
nish with parsley and lemon quarters.
Serve with mayonnaise dressing.
Chicken Cutlets.-Chop fine enough
of the breast of cooked chicken to
make half a cupful, add half a cup of
chopped blanched almonds; pound and
force through a sieve. Heat a cup of
rich chicken stock to the boiling point
and pour it over the yolks of three
eggs which have been slightly beaten.
Stir, to keep the mixture smooth.
Add a teaspoonful of gelatine which
h3o been softened in a tablespoonful
of cold water, strain and set in a pan
of Ice water.
As soon as the mixture begins to
thicken, stir in the chicken and nut
mixture and season highly with salt
and cayenne. Then fold in a cup of
heavy cream beaten stiff. Put into
cutlet molds and let stand until thor
oughly chilled. Turn from the molds
and garnish with lettuce and bits of
higher powers of duty and happiness;
not in rlvalship or contention with oth
ers, but for help, delight, honor of oth
ers, and for the Joy and peace of my
own life. -John Ruskin.
SOME HINTS FOR SUMMER
During the hot weather, food spoils
,so quickly that it is wise to purchase
just enough to last over the twenty
four hours. Fruits of all kinds, green
vegetables and little meat should con
stitute the bulk of one's diet.
Fruits needs mastication, even the
. very ripe and tender varieties. Those
.who are distressed after eating fruit
?are usually those who are careless
; about masticating it
Summer breakfasts are usually a
.problem to the housemother, especial
ly if her family has a diversity of
I tastes. There is nothing more re
freshing and satisfying than fresh
fruit in its season, and nature has sup
plied ns so abundantly that even the
; fussy person may have the kind he
Fried fruit seems out of place, as
does oatmeal, except at rare intervals.
'There are always cool days when
hearty foods are relished, so that va
riety is thus given.
Fruit, If served in a large flat dish
I or basket, with its own leaves for gar
inishment, is usually attractive. A lit
? tie chopped ice on each serving of
! fruit makes it more appetizing on a
?very hot morning.
Housewives who are careful of their
'linen have small colored napkins for
the fruit course, which saves the
white napkins from many stains.
Omelets are always acceptable as a
"breakfast dish, especially in warm
weather, and they may be varied by
different sauces or seasonings. A de
licious sweet omelet which may be
served as a dessert is prepared as fol
lows: Have the omelet pan hot and
well buttered, then add a handful of
blanched almonds Just before putting
in the omelet; when it is cooked,
ready to fold, the almonds will be well
browned. Be careful not to scorch
them. Serve this with a hot maple
sirup for a sauce.
