SCOTT ADVISES HOW TO PROVIDE FOR UNEXPECTED GUESTS Emergency Shelf Stocked with Canned and Package Goods is Her Idea. BJ MBS. AJfKA B. SCOTT Culinary Expert of the Philadelphia forth American. Let us suppose that the housewife Is sitting in her home late'in the af ternoon. The telephone bell rings, Md her husband" at the other end of the wire announces "I ah. bringing two gentlemen out to dinner this even ing, .dearr and hangs up. i under ordinary circumstances this would send chills down the back of any woman, tor It almost always, hap pens that when the unexpected guest drops In or the husband invites sev eral of his friends to the house you nad plannod for a dinner of left overs. Here is an incident that occurs reg ularly, and yet it seem* that the aver age housekeeper Is not prepared to meet it. ? ' - No , better test of housekeeping or or management can be found than the way the wife meets the'unexpect ed- guest. Nine times out of ten she will becojne excited, abuse her husT baad, declare she. has nothing, lit to eat in the house and rush out to the store and waste money in making hasty purohases. Also, she will feel unkindly toward the guest.' Go to .the, Emergency Shelf. "Hie senBlble woman will accopt the al.ot the .gnest as a compliment, Without a word, she will begin to pre pare a fine meal from her emergency \ shelf. There should be' no more worry about setting an extra place at' the table.than preparing a breakfast for the family. The emergency shelf that the house wife calls Into use should stand for Its name. It must not be confused with the staple shelf, where the things are replenished at regular in- < tervals. The emergency shelf should i be equipped with tins from which a' dinner of soup, flBh. meat, .two veg etables, salad and a deBBert can be prepared quickly. It should be em ployed- only in emergencies. Now Is the time to fill the emergen cy shelf if you' do not have one al ready. There is plenty of room in the pantry or kitchen closets. The average housekeeper, I know, likes to keep her pots and pans on the shelves, ^iay way Is to have them hanging'on hooks at the edge of the shelf, where they are handy as well as ornamen tal, instead of having them hidden away. Not let us see what we will put on the emergency shelf Stocking the Shelf. The following list is here given and the articles should be put on one of the higher shelves, as they are not used as often as the staples, which much be kept handy. First, purchase according to your income. Where one lives has much to do with it. If liv ing in a suburb, where it is hard ,to get things late In the afternoon, or in the city In a section where the store is some distance away, a larger va riety should be laid in. Buv to suit yourself and the space available. Here are some suggestions: 6 cans soup of cholco. 6 cans of tuna fish. 2 cans of best ox tongue. 2 glasses sliced dried beef. 1 glass sliced 'bacon. 1 can best imported olive oil for mayonnaise. 2 jars cheese. 1 can sardines. ?1 package crackers. 1 package of zwieback. 6 packages seoded raisins. 1 package of dates. 1 Jar of flgs. 6 cans of unsweetened milk. Canned Vegetables. 2 cans asparagus tips for salad. 1 can red beets. 6 canB string beans. 2 cans lima beans. 6 cans tomatoes. 6 cans baked beans. 2 cans Hawaiian pineapple. 2 cans California peaches. 2 cans cherries. 6 pint bottles stuffed olives. 1 small can of pimentos for emerg ency garnish. An Emergency Pinner. Here Is a sample dinner which can be prepared frOm the materials Canned soup. Stuffed olives. Tuna flsh a la Creole, or Braised, creamed or plain heated canned ox tongue. Mashed or baked potatoes. Canned .ipeas, string beans, lima beans or vegetables of choice. . Salad, canned asparagus, beets or Hawaiian pineapple. Dessert?A cornstarch pudding, fruit pubs, can be nyxte in a snort time, or often a jar of your choice canned fruit; and if you have none of your own, open a can of California choice fruit, or serve a small piece of fruu cake with a hot pudding sauce. With the above dinner you will be able to satisfy most any person. Un derstand, this menu Is for emergenoy shelf only, and, as stated above, not for daily use. And whenever an emergency ..meal is prepared-be1 sure when ne'xt-you give your-order to your dealer that the things that were used are replaced. At the same time, I will give you a staple list, which, or course, you use in connection with the emergency shelf. The staples-are as follows, and everything Is kept In pint, quart and two quart Jars. Rice and hominy. Tapioca, farina and barley. Cornstarch and gelatin. ' Salt, red and white pepper, paprika. Baking powder. Raisins and' currants. Citron, lline and orange peel. Yellow and While cornmeal. 3 or 3 kinds of uncooked cereal. Cocoa and chocolate. Tea'and coffee: Whole wheat and white flour. Dried lima and soup beans. Yellow and green split peas. Cooking oil and shortening. Worcestershire sauce. Grape juice. Canned milk is always on the staple shelf. Br led parsley and celery are always on hand. Whole and ground spices are kept in jelly glasses and tin shakers. There should' always be some seas onable vegetables on hand, such, as po tatoes, cabbage, carrots, onions, let tuce. When there is no lettuce and a salad is desired, shred cabbage very fine and leave it in cold water thirty minutes, drain and shake dry. To make a very attractive salad for the emergency dinner, cut the canned beets into small dice, pile in center of bowl and put the finely shredded cab bage around.- Tho white Is sliced thin and put ove rthe beets, the yolk Is grated over the cabbage, and served with French dressing, which Is made with paprika and flavored with onion, and you have a very attractive and delicious salad in a short time.
