Long soaking in water before cook

water-soluble. Rinse the flowerettes
quickly in running water and cook

water. Add a little lemon juice to
keep the cauliflower snowy white.

A St. Patrick's Day Luncheon I available, will bring forth admiring
The time to start thinking about
Spring is just when February
winds are blowing their hardest.
And one of the nicest ways to wel
come this nicest season of the year
is with a green St. Patrick’s day
luncheon, vflth its promise of the
grass that will soon be sprouting.
Almost everything should be this
spring-y color for your party on
March 17th — the
your table and
even much of the
food you serve. A
charming way to
give a St. Patrick's touch to your
table is to spread a lot of feathery
ferns over a white cloth. For a
twinkling "extra” put a tiny, white
birthday-cake candle stuck in a
flat green gumdrop in front of

There’s the St. Patrick note in
your main course, too. Ordinary
biscuits cut into the shape of sham
rocks and a simple lettuce salad
dressed up with cucumbers, if
looks. With these dishes should go
hearty, but feathery, chicken short
cakes and a light sweet-potato
souffle that will show that you’re
just as good, or better, cook than
you are a decorator.
Dessert is easy. Just serve green
mint sherbet with plain cakes or
a Time gelatine pudding molded
into gay shapes—and end your
luncheon on the same merry green
note with which it began.
Here is the recipe for individual
chicken short-cakes—a good dish to

Sift together flour, baking pow

mix in thoroughly with fork. Add
liquid slowly to make soft dough.
Roll or pat out on floured board
to *4 inch in thickness. Cut with
large biscuit cutter, first dipped in
flour. Place on slightly greased pan
and bake in hot oven (475 degrees
F.) 10 to 12 minutes. Split biscuits,
put creamed chicken between layers
and on top garnish with parsley.
