And. speaking in the jargon of the modern youth, we say “and now fnat tnat’s over.” we can ■ettk ourselves lor the lour weeks so crowded with busy days and re minders in the newspapers that there are “only 21 more shopping days,” or 17 more of these days un til Christmas As if anyone could be settled during this particular month. At best, we hope you had the sort of Thanksgiving day we wished for you last week, with just enough of good food, happy friends, high color and a It. of the kind of laugh ter the world needs most right now. II everyone who reads this page was sunshine to a life that needed it, then you can rest assured that this was a real red letter day, something beyond two ngnres and the name of a month on a calendar. Life is a much sweeter problem when worked out in long division. Air of Generosity There is something about the pre paration of a holiday feast, some thing that makes the most of us generous, so that we lind it neces sary to utilize any number of left overs. If there is enough for Sun day dinner and it is carefully stor ed in the refrigerator, we can en joy church services all the more for knowing Just how easy it will be uo warm things up whsn we got home, and to unmold the salad we made on Saturday. Just suppose we could not ask all the guests for dinner Thursday who were on our chosen lists, and we wished to carry on with an informal Sunday night supper, one of the popular forms of entertaining of to day. why not try this one?

Beil the bones and skin for stock to make white sauce, adding a bav leaf, a bit of onion or garlic, if you like it, and a dasii oi nutmeg. It we could count grains of nutmeg. I would say about a dozrn-—for the required unnamable flavor these grains add to creamed meat dishes. Use two tablespoons of butter, three tablespoons flour and a cup and a half of stock, with 1-2 cup milk to thin out If It gets too thick Melt the butter in a sauce pan large enough for the meat; stir in the flour to a smooth paste, let cook to a golden brown, then add stock and top milk Season with salt and pepper.

Serving As a Bullet Supper This ever-lncreaslngly popular method of serving is not without reason. The first good reason is the jollity and entire lack of formality which accompanies the serving ol a buffet meal Another outstanding reason, winch m really a relief to the thinking hostess, is the fact that guest* choose their own supper partner* and she need not spend a sleepless hour oi so in wondering whether she should put Who Next to What. and the consequences whether she does or doesn't.

Since It is still so close to Thanksgiving. the same flowers or fruit could be used as a centerpiece. If the crowd is not large, coffee and tea may be served by one person from one end of the table. An easy way of serving this menu would be to unmold the salad on the plate, arranging them on the buffet, ready to be picked up by the guests, then putting the p.atter of cold sliced turkev on the table.
