Mystery Dinner at Thicket

If you are for­tu­nate enough to pos­sess a wide porch or a stretch of lawn do not for­get your less for­tu­nate friends, and give an occa­sion­al infor­mal par­ty there while the weath­er is still fine. Food always tastes so much bet­ter in the fresh air and when friends are present it makes the affair noth­ing more than a kind of glo­ri­fied pic­nic. There are few more pleas­ant ways of enter­tain­ing than by giv­ing a porch par­ty.

Prepare as much as pos­si­ble ear­ly in the day. If you have sand­wich­es wrap them in a damp nap­kin; if cold drinks are want­ed have them well chilled, your glass­es and straws handy, have your sil­ver and chi­na ready at hand so that when your guests arrive you may devote your time and atten­tion to them. The fol­low­ing menus are not hard to pre­pare and the dish­es will be found most palat­able and suit­ed to every purse: Veribest Canned Fruits, the stand­by of the cook who com­bines econ­o­my of time with excel­lence of qual­i­ty, are used in many of them.

There is a wide range of these meats deli­cious and many ways of using them. Every pantry should have at least one shelf devot­ed to them so that the house­wife need nev­er be at a loss for the basis of a good meal. In so many cas­es of con­va­les­cence where the appetite is flag­ging and the diges­tion weak, ham and bacon are pre­scribed, both for their ton­ic and nutri­tive val­ue.

Buy­ing a whole ham at a time is the best and most eco­nom­i­cal way of buy­ing ham, as expe­ri­ence will prove. It can be boiled or baked whole and sliced for what­ev­er pur­pose intend­ed. When baked ham is broiled for break­fast it requires to be cooked just long enough to get hot all the way through.

Although a meal sat­is­fies your hunger you should have dessert, because the edu­cat­ed palate craves that par­tic­u­lar spice as a prop­er fin­ish. Sci­en­tists tell us that a din­ner digests bet­ter because of a tasty dessert, which, they say, gives the final stim­u­lus nec­es­sary to dis­pose of the food pre­vi­ous­ly received. The sim­ple desserts are the best desserts, and none is more pleas­ing to the eye and the palate or so eas­i­ly made or so fre­quent­ly served in an imper­fect man­ner, than cus­tards.

With a sup­ply of good eggs in the pantry the house­wife need nev­er be at a loss for a tasty cus­tard, and if she is wise enough to buy Armour’s Fan­cy Selects when she orders eggs from her mar­ket man their good­ness will be reflect­ed in her desserts. Aside from their good­ness their extra large size will always rec­om­mend their use to the wise cook. They come packed in an extra large car­ton. It is a wise plan to keep a vari­ety of Sum­mer Sausage on hand, as in a very few min­utes deli­cious sand­wich­es may be pre­pared with this, these sand­wich­es hav­ing the charm of nov­el­ty. It is impos­si­ble to deal in a short arti­cle with the many vari­eties of Sum­mer Sausage, but there are three or four which can be touched upon. To have a thor­ough under­stand­ing of their good­ness one must not only read about them but taste them.

They are the sta­ple diet in many for­eign coun­tries and in the Armour brand the native fla­vor­ing has been done with remark­able faithfulness—so much so that large quan­ti­ties are shipped from this coun­try every week to the coun­tries where they orig­i­nat­ed.
