Report to the Housewife
fi v Violet Faulkner -
Food Editor.
(This Article la the Third in a Seriea.)
One Sunday afternoon to San
Francisco I boarded a train and
• cnt across Bay Bridge to El Cerrito
. i call on some old college friends.
'Their little Spanish house was
charming, and through the scenic
window to the living room I caught
my first glimpse of their, lovely
garden to the rear.
I hope I can do it Justice. It’s
not a large garden, but when I tell
you all the different things they
grow there you’ll think they have
a small farm. The garden plot is
only 55 feet wide by 73 feet deep.
In front of it, shutting it off from
the street, is the “casita,” or little
house where they store all their
garden tools. It could easily be
finished off to make a perfect
"mother-in-law apartment.”
Along the fence on the north side
of the garden is a lace vine, sweet
peas growing 7 feet high, covered
over with blossoms of various col
ors; a rambler rose and an espa
ltered pear, peach and apple tree.
Curiously enough, they picked up
the idea for the espaliered trees
when they were on a sightseeing
trip to our own Mount Vernon.
The vegetable garden Is divided
Into five different bays at different
levels. The front bay grows arti
chokes and strawberries f inci
dentally we had both of these for
supper later on).; the second bay
contains sweet corn, beans and cu
cumbers: the third bay had a row
of tomatoes, and one each of pep
pers, radishes, carrots, beets and
an asparagus bed; in the fourth bay
were two young orange trees, a
green gage plum, a grapefruit tree
and was bordered in the rear by
boysenberries on trellises that were
Just beginning to ripen; the last
bay held a Royal Ann cherry tree,
a Tartarian cherry tree and an
espalicred peach tree. As one crop
is finished the ground ts fertilized
and made ready for the next, in
that way something is growing all
the time.
The lawn back of the house was
bordered on the north by flowers, a
Hale peach tree, grape arbor and an
apricot tree. Tucked in under the
trees was their outdoor fire place
with chairs and a table for outdoor
dining. A rose garden framed the
east side along with another peach j
tree, a rhododendron, a new redwood j
and Oregon grape. They also had!
a lilac bush but, I'm told, lilacs don’tj
do too well in California, the climate |
Is not cold enough for then-. They ;
told me of one woman whs r>-en took
ice cubes from her refrigerator to put |
around the roots to encourage their
growth and was really successful. i
un me soum siue were more roses
on trellises, a strawberry tree, an
olive tree, an azalea or two, and i
many, many varieties of fuchsia. In j
a little nook between their housej
and their neighbors grew many more !
varieties—some deep purple, others!
red and white, some deep red, or red
and purple and still more purple
and white. They were training them
to grow on trellises rather than drop
over, some of Ihe plants were 15
feet high, all dripping with beautiful
If you can imagine all this In;
technicolor with all the colors in
the spectrum from the brilliant pur- j
pies and reds of the fuchsias and j
roses to the lovely soft gray-green :
of the olive leaves, you can form an;
idea of this thoroughly delightful'
and charming garden. In the midst j
of all this lush growth and beauty, I
I asked my friend ‘Mac' why they1
i didn’t haw some of the gorgeous
' bright geraniums I had seen all
!over Berkeley and San Francisco.
1 she told me they wouldn’t bother
with anything “so common,” any
! one could grow geraniums, they were
! ;onsidered nothing better than weeds
! in California. They had dug theirs j
up and thrown them away.
It seemed a shame to leave and go j
inside, but when garden fresh arti- j
1 chokes and fresh picked strawberries •
| await you—well! there are com- ,
j pensations.
On the. home front this week |
there's a good selection of fruits j
and vegetables in spite of the un-1
certain weather conditions. Many;
of the fruits, especially berries, are;
in season such a short time it's well j
to take advantage of the fresh fruit;
while you can. Berries this week
include strawberries, blueberries,
blackberries and a few raspberries;
other fruits are excellent cantaloupe,
watermelon, Buig cherries, avocados, ;
citrus fruits and flrst-of-the-season j
Thompson seedless grapes from Call-1
fomia. There’s still some very fine
Jersey asparagus to be had, plenty i
of all kinds of greens, tomatoes, cu- j
cumbers, limas, beets, carrots, cab-;
bage and squash.
Meat continues high in price but,;
I'm told, there will be some splendid |
values in bulk cheese offered this
week, a 5-pound American loaf and
a mild Wisconsin cheese. The less
! expensive forequarter cuts of lamb
and veal will be among the better
buys in meat; frying chickens con
tinue plentiful, also pork loins, fresh
picnics and spareribs. There’s no
scarcity of the other cuts if you can

Child’s poem for Mrs. P. E. jr.
Perhaps following is correct:
Little Robin Red Breast
Sat upon a tree
Singing. "Here are cherries,
They are nice for me."
"Stop," said little Tommy.
"Don't you think I know
Those are Papa's cherries
And you'd better go?’
••Did your Papa make them?”
Cried the Robin Red.
••No," said little Tommy.
Hanging down hie head.
‘•"ome back little Robin.
You may have a few.
There's enough for Robin
And for Tommy, too.
(From Mrs. C. P., Silver Spring.)
Every night after my two little
girls are in bed I enjoy reading the
RCH. Concerning Little Robin Red
breast, I have a Mother Goose book
containing over 700 rhymes and I
enjoy it very much with my two
girls. It is published by Whitman
Publishing Co., Racine, Wis. I bought
the book at the 5 and 10 cent store.
Here is the poem:
Little Robinn Redbreast sat upon a rail,
Widdle-waddle went his head,
Wiggle-waggle went his tail.
Little Robin Redbreast sat upon a tree,
Up went Pussy Cat. and down went he;
Down rame Pussy Cat, and away Robin
Say-spittle Robin Redbreast, “Catch me If
you can." •
Little Robin Redbreast lumped upon a wall;
Pussy Cat lumped after him, and almost
got a fall. . . .
Little -Robin chirped and aang, and what
did Pussy say?
Pussy Cat aaid “Mew” and Robin Jumped
away. -
There Is also a 10-cent book called
“Animal Mother Goose" No. 911.
Very nice for little girls.

At last there Is a request that I
can answer, and am glad to do so,
as I have received so many helpful
hints and recipes on our page. This
is for the lady who wanted a really
GOOD recipe for corn griddle cakes.
This is one of the best.
Corn Meal Griddle Cakes: One
cup corn meal, boiling water, 4 table
spoons flour, 3 teaspoons baking
powder, % teaspoon salt, X scant
tablespoon sugar (or sirup), 1 egg,
1 cup milk or a little less.
Scald meal in just enough feoiling
water to cover it. Let stand five
minutes, then add flour, salt, sugar.
Thin to a batter with beaten egg
and milk, and add the baking powder
last, beating it In well. Cook at once
‘on a hot, well greased griddle.
And answering a request for a
poem. "White Lilacs," here it is:
Who once has seen white lilacs, nevermore
Upon the alter of his heart shall keep
A place for things more lovely, though he go
Into a hundred garden lands and reap
A harvesting* of blooms whose petals hold
The embers of the sunset’s fires, and glow
Of purple twilights quivering with dew.

A thing more glorious to blind his eyes.
! A beauty lovelier to pierce his heart.

Trail every silver stream and counterpart.

Beside a garden gate: pale lilacs white
Against the quiet stars-r-the loveliest poem

Being a mere man, this may not
carry much weight. It’s in regard
| to pastry mashed potatoes. To over
jcome these objections, when using
an electric mixer, use the water in
which potatoes have been boiled
instead of milk. Besides improving
texture and taste you use all the
vitamins, etc., lost in the boiling
process. A little experimentation
will produce excellent results, and
you’ll never go back to the milky

Having noticed many comments
on schedules, training, clothing, etc.,
for children, I am wondering if any
of the mothers who contributed
some of the fine articles can give
me some suggestions as to how to
keep blanket? on my 6-month-old
son while he is sleeping in his crib.
He works his way out of every
method I have tried. I am par
ticularly anxious to know of meth
ods • used successfully during the
winter months. Of course, I also
want to know about keeping him
covered with light weight blankets
in the summer. He sleeps on his
back. My pediatrician does not be

(From Mrs. W. M. A., Bethesda.)
I had paper, then cold water paint
in my kitchen; the paint washed no
better than the paper as far as
grease spots were concerned. After
repainting several times, over the
grease splots (they didn't seem to
come through >, I decided to try
enamel as it seemed I was forever
cleaning in my kitchen, and it al
ways looked awful. I had a painter
come and do the job right, and I
selected the nearest color in enamel
to what was already on the walls in
cold water piaint. It covered per
fectly, with no ill effects whatso
ever. It is a year this spring since!
we did this and the kitchen, now!
being truly washable, looks as bright
and clean as the day the painter
finished with it. I do hopie this
helps you. By the way one well
known piaint store in town advised
me that such a thing could not be
done (enamel over cold water piaint)
and still another said it could be
done perfectly. So you see there
are some differences in opinion on
the subject.

“Fools rush in where Angels fear
to tread." So I do occasionally ex
periment with cooking. Recently
when in a hurry to frost a cake
I hit upon a very easy method which
I am happy to pass on to'you. When
the cake is baked just before re
moving from the oyen lay four or
five milk chocolate bars on top of
cake. Close oven door and in not
more than 30 seconds, the chocolate
will be soft. Remove cake from
oven and with spatula spread soft
ened chocolate evenly over top of
cake. Allow cake to remain in pan
until cold. This method is saving
in material and time because there
is no sticky frosting bowl to scrape
and wash.

For the Sunday lunch consider a
3-pound shoulder of lamb braised
and served in a delicious sauce in
which thick sour cream plays a part.

lamb and cut the meat into cubes.
Salt and paprika these and then;
brown them in the fat with 2 medium
onions, chopped. Cut up enough
j fresh tomatoes to make 2 cups and
[ add this to meat and onions. Throw
j in a little minced parsley and some
fresh rosemary leaves, minced.
Cover and cook slowly on top of
j stove for about 2 hours. If you find
: the meat getting too dry, add a very
■ little water. Stir in a cupful of
thick sour cream just before you are
; ready to serve the lamb, blending
• it In well with the juices in the pan. j
Stuffed Peppers
A healthy and delicious main
luncheon course for a summer's day
consists of green peppers stuffed
with cottage cheese. Not, new, of
course, but the secret of success
is in the flavoring of the cottage
cheesi. These are a specialty
around our house and this is how
we make thfm:
Wash the peppers, of course, cut
off the tops and remove the seeds.
Mix the cottage cheese with just
enough cream to make it into a
smooth paste but it must be on the
stiff side, rather than runny.
Now, work into it a little cayenne,
a fewT drops of Worcestershire sauce,
salt and pepper. Mince a few chives
or shallots and work them in, too.
Last, add just a suggestion of dill—
either the dried or fresh leaves.
Stuff the peppers ,well with this
mixture, packing them tightly.
Then put them in the icebox for
an hour or more and when ready
to serve, slice .them in half-inch
slices. Arrange on beds of water
cress, dust with paprika and serve.;
with or without tart mayonnaise. 1
A favorite of ours is cpld boiled
salmon, with a green-tinted cu
cumber mayonnaise. It is simple
to prepare, but worthy of the fan
ciest dinner party.
Of course, if you have rich friends!
who flsh the Restigouche and other j
famous salmon rivers and send voui
a silvery beauty all packed in ice :
as a present—then you've got. the!
finest there is. Otherwise, you 'll j
have to make do with the fresh
Eastern or Western salmon found,
in the fish market.
Get a 3-pound piece of salmon,
whole. Wrap the piece in a square j
of cheesecloth and plunge it into,
boiling court bouillon. After five!
minutes, reduce the boiling to a j
mere simmer and cook slowly until’
fish. starts to fall away fronj the j
bone. You can allow 10 minutes!
per pound.
Remove the fish to a dish, take;
off cheesecloth carefully and peel
off skin. Sprinkle fish with lemon
juice, rewrap firmly in cloth and set
to chill. When ready to serve, un-;
wrap, put on platter and garnish1
with lemon wedges and parsley.
Serve with mayonnaise to which
chopped cucumber and a little
green coloring have been added.
Court bouillon consists of a little
chopped carrot, onion, celery and
parsley with 2 tablespoons butter,
6 peppercorns, 2 cloves, a bay leaf,
a tablespoon salt and 2 tablespoons
vinegar in 2 quarts of water.

. The Chef Says—
Another peach season will sooni
be in full swing when the fruit j
comes rolling in from the South to I
markets all over the land. There are |
dosens and dosens of ways In which j
to serve peaches—in shortcakes,
tarts, pies, fritters, dumplings, re
freshing drinks and so on.
There is nothing better than a
dish of freshly-sliced peaches, driz
zled with a little lemon juice and
dusted with powdered sugar, to end
a summery lunch or dinner—or as a
breakfast fruit, for that matter. And
there will be the thrifty housewives
who will make peach preserves,
spiced and pickled, peaches and who
will brandy them and can them.
Here are some of my favorite peach
recipes. First and foremost, of
course, comes the famous PEACHES
MELBA, created in honor of the
great opera singer by no less than
the famous EscofBer himself. It is
Interesting to note that the original
recipe which he included in his
“Guide to Modem Cookery,” pub
lished in 1907, differs somewhat
from the one which he includes in
his last work, “Ma Cuisine," pub
lished in 1934. So it wpuld appear
that even the greatest masters do
not hesitate to make changes in
time-honored recipes, if they feel
the result will be improved. This is
the 1934 recipe from “Ma Cuisine:”
“Choose tender peaches that will
not cling to the stone. Plunge them
in boiling for one minute; remove
them with a skimmer, and douse
them in ice water. Slip off the skins.
Put them on a plate, sprinkle them
with sugar and set them to chill.
Have prepared some vanilla ice
cream, very soft and creamy, and a
puree of fresh raspberries. Put a
layer of ice cream in a false bot
tomed dish (the inner compartment
of which holds crushed ice) or in a
| cut glass dish. Lay the peaches on
| the ice cream, and cover them with
! the raspberry puree. The puree may
be mixed with a little whipped cream
or simply raspberries and powdered
' sugar.”
i SERT is made by stewing, or rather,
poaching, some peeled peaches in a
sirup made by combining 2 cups
sugar-water sirup with 1 cup part
wine and 2 tablespoons arrowroot,
diluted with a little port wine. The
arrowroot will thicken the sirup.
Chill the peaches and when ready
to serve, pour over them a glass or
so of brandy, ignite It and serve the
peaches flaming.
Let’s try a PEACH UPSIDE
DOWN CAKE as a change from the
more usual peach shortcake or
peach cobbler.
Melt 3 tablespoons of butter In
a shallow baking pan and add to
it 6 tablespoons brown sugar—and
let the mixture simmer until It
| coats the bottom of the pan evenly.
Lay a thick layer of peeled, sliced
and stoned peaches on top of the
sugar sirup. The peaches must be
very ripe.
jvxaae a Daiter oy Dealing ■*, cup
butter to a cream and beating in
14 cup sugar. When the mixture is
fluffy, add the yolk of 1 egg and
beat to a froth. Sift 1 cup flour
with 114 teaspoon* baking powder
and a little salt and add to first
mixture alternately with 14 cup of
milk. (Begin and end with the
Beat all thoroughly. Then, fold in
the stiffly beaten egg white. Pour
the batter carefully over the
peaches and bake in a moderate
oven until the cake is brown. About
25 minutes should be enough. You
can see if a straw comes out clean
to be sure it is done. Turn out
onto a platter and serve with plain
or whipped cream.
PEACHES: Peel and stone 4 large
freestone peaches — don’t cut in
halves, dig stone out from the top.
Scoop out a few spoonfuls of pulp,
mashing very fine. To this add 6
macaroons, rolled to a powder, and
2 stiffly beaten egg whites. A little
almond extract is good, too. Stuff
peaches with this mixture, put them
in a pan with just enough water
to keep them from burning and
bake until just soft, but do not let
them lose their shape. Take them
from the oven, top with meringue
and brown this slowly in the oven.
