Recipes for commodity foods prepared, sampled
by Norma L. Simpson
The last day of August I joined with the
Commodity Foods to provide Warm Springs
folks with some samples of dishes that are
made with commodity foods. The object of
the tasting demonstrations is to show how to
prepare the foods and dishes that they had
never made. One father with his young son
said he really liked to cook and was glad that
we had recipes for the treats that they watched
The recipes were selected because of the
low level of fat, salt and sugar in casseroles
and salad. These recipes were taken from the
cookbook called QUICK & EASY
COMMODITY RECIPES for Foods
Distribution Program on Indian Reservations.
These recipes were developed and tested by
tribal members from 10 tribes, nutritionists,
extension agents all over the USA. At the
bottom of the recipes is the Nutrition
Information for one serving. You have to be
careful that you cat the size of the serving
that is given. In case of the 12 can serving of
scalloped corn, you might be tempted to eat
two servings which would mean that the
sodium content would double from 245
milligrams to 490 milligrams. And the fat
content would double from IS grams of fat to
30 grams of fat. Try green beans or spinach
vegetable choices to go along with traditional
roots to add more nutrients and color to the
In the case of the cold or hot macaroni and
meat salad recipe, you would see 1 cup of the
salad (or hot casserole) would double in fat,
but 2 cups of this recipe is a lot to eat if you
have other thing with the casserole. We
suggest that you try another vegetable like
spinach or carrots to give the meal a balance
of nutrients and more color to tempt the
family. To reduce the amount of salt, use
green pepper instead of pickle or relish.
Makes 10 serving, 112 cup each
1 cup Dry egg mix
1 cup water
2 cans Cream-style corn
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons evaporated milk
14 teaspoon pepper

2. Beat egg mix and water until smooth in
a large bowl.
3. Add all other ingredients. Mix well.
4. Pour into lightly oiled baking dish.
5. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour,
until the top is light brown.
If you cook the scalloped corn in the
microwave, cook it for 2-3 minutes then stir
the casserole so that the food will not dry out
and curl in the dish.
Then cook for 9 minutes more. Test with
a fork to see if the casserole has cooked in
the center. If undercooked, try turning the
microwave dish upside down and cook 2

Publications offer helpful information to readers
by Norma L. Simpson
As you know, we receive several nutrition
and health magazines in the OSUWarm
Springs Extension office. Each month I go
through them to select articles that I think
will help you to have a healthy life by the
things that you can do at home. New
knowledge gives you control over your
healthy eating and can influence what others
do about your food choices.
Restaurants Modify Menus
The latest issue of the "University of
California a Berkeley Wellness Letter" has
two articles in the September 1994 issue.
"Three out of four restaurant chefs have
modified their menus over the past few years
to offer healthier alternatives, according to a
recent survey of 300 chefs across the county .
About 86 have reduced the fat content of at
least some of their entrees and appetizers;
72 have cut back on salt in all dishes; 54
are providing more vegetables with their
entrees; and 67 are using more fruit in their
I think we al need to see that the foods we
eat away from home will not tempt us to eat
more than we need at each meal. Many
restaurants will allow you to substitute fatty
foods for more nutritious foods. I have found
one restaurant which allows me to substitute
the salad bar for the french fries. While I miss
the fries, I feel so much better when I eat a
spoon full of potato salad and 1 tablespoon of
salad dressing on the greens rather than 3
tablespoons of dressing that many restaurants
serve on the salad. Give it a try.
Do It Yourself Low-Fat Chicken
It's true that the government requires
growers and processors to live up to their
labels. So if a label says "low-fat," the chicken
should be low-fat. Given the price differential
for free-range chicken, however, you might
be forgiven a little skepticism.
In any case, whether a chicken is high in
fat or not, you needn't eat the fat. Most of the
fat is in the skin and just under it and is easily
removed. Unlike beef and pork, chicken meat
is not marbled. Thus you don't have to depend
on the grower. It's up to you to take the steps
to get low-fat chicken: Don't eat the skin;
Trim and discard all visible fat; Skim the pan
juices and stock and discard the fat; Eat the
white mean, not the dark.
Are free-range chickens worth the price,
usually double that of regular chicken? Some
people say they taste better. But these
chickens are not better for your health than
any other, and they're not more sanitary.
They must be handles in the kitchen as
carefully as any other. Raw chicken is often
contaminated with .salmonella and other
bacteria, whether the birds roam free or not
field as well as caring for the meat while it is
being transported and preparing cuts for home
use. Information about antelope, bear, deer
and elk is included in the handbook.
"How the kill is treated in the field is the
key to having good quality meat for the
family," Raab stresses. "That's why over
half of the publication is devoted to this
topic. Meat from big game animals is a
nutritious choice for family meals but only if
the carcass is handled carefully and the meat
is stored correctly."
Raab is co-author of "Big Game" with W.
Daniel Edge, OSU Extension wildlife
specialist, and Jan Busboom, Washington
State University Extension meat specialist.
Photos illustrate various steps in handling
the kill in the field as well as skinning, and
cutting up the carcass. A chart shows expected

MYTH: Light cigarettes are "light"
. FACT: If you think you are getting less
tar, nicotine and carbon monoxide from
"low-yield" cigarettes and have thus
reducing your health risks, you are
probably kidding yourself. The amount
of tar and nicotine listed on the package
has little to do with the amount a person
inhales. The tobacco companies
measure cigarette yields by using
smoking machines, which take
standardized puffs. However, people
don't smoke that way, they usually
compensate for the low yield by puffing
more, inhaling deeper, and smoking the
cigarette down to the filter. They may
also smoke more cigarettes. For this
reason, the FTC is reexamining its
methods for measuring compounds in
Thus studies have shown that there's
little correlation between stated nicotine
yields from various brands and the
nicotine levels measured in the blood of.
smokers. In effect, smokers are able to
get the same amount of nicotine, their
"fix," no matter what brand they smoke.
Recent Congressional hearings revealed
that the tobacco companies manipulate
nicotine yields in subtle ways to keep
The notion that "light" cigarettes are
safer has been shot down by a numberof
studies. For instance, 1989 study from
Boston University foundthat women who
smoked such cigarettes actually had a
slightly higher risk of heart attack (the
leading smoking-related illness) than
those who smoked stronger brands.
"Light" cigarettes are just one more
way the tobacco companies have misled
the public over the years.

Stockman's Roundup: Market wisely
Camp a huge success; appreciation goes to many
OSU Extension Agent'
Livestock and Range
Wise Livestock Marketing
Not all horses and cattle are sold through
the auction yard these days anymore. The
stockman has various methods by which to
market his stock. There are now satellite
video auctions, where catUe are seen in the
pasture and bids are placed by phone. Order
buyers are also available, who buy direct
from the ranch. This method is becoming
popular, but it pays to be knowledgeable
about the buyer, as well as the method of
A cattle producer may wish to hang on to
some of his steers and sell them as yearlings.
This approach is called a "rollback," as more
pounds of beef are sold, but at a slightly
lower price than for weancr calves.
Horses are often bought and sold privately.
This is a desirable option for many stockmen.
However, some get non-payment problems
in return. Reduce your risk by using a few
precautions: 1) ask for cash (obviously). 2)
Verify the buyer's ability to pay by calling
his bank. 3) Retain title to livestock until
final payment is received. 4) Insist on other
acceptable methods of payment, such as wire
transfer, cashier's check, money order, letter
of credit or cash.
When selling by private treaty, a personal
check may be written. Make sure ail pertinent
information is on the check, including mailing
address, phone number, and date of birth. It
would be wise to jot down the auto license
number if you accept a check from someone
you've never done business with before.
Off The Subject
The Oregon Cattlemen 's Association will
be meeting in Portland September 21-23, at
the PDX Holiday Inn. The phone number to
register is 731-3200.
Was asked to remind folks about using
the corrals at the industrial site. You'll notice
a new sign posted up there, "one week only."
The Rockin' 4-H Club will be having its
first meeting on Monday, September 12,
5:30 p.m. at the 4-H pasture on Tenino road.
All are invited.
Some folds might be interested in getting
the youth on the North End interested in
Rocking' 4-H. We need volunteers.
Beginning in October, each Friday at noon
we will be having lunch time classes for
folks interested in livestock and range
management. The classes will be at the
Extension Office, and will include videos,
discussions, guest speakers, and fun. Next
issue will be a schedule of topics.
We will be doing the same at the fire hall
in Simnasho some weekday evenings
throughout the winter.
