Carving Roast Stuffed Lamb Shoulder I

Many people think the meat of a
ahoulder of lamb li Just as tender
and quite at delicious In flavor as the
leg or any other part The shoulder
Is not so easy to carve as the leg.
owing to the Irregular shape and cen
tral position of the shoulder blade.
This difficulty about earring Is easily
met, says the bureau of horns econ
omics. Select a shoulder of lamb
weighing from 8 to 4 pounds. Have
the butcher remove all the bones, as
well as the fell, or outer papery cov
ering of skin. The bones may be
saved for making soup. The shoulder
may then be stuffed, and either left
flat or rolled, and the pocket holds
twice as much stuffing. Either of these
completely boned stuffed shoulders can
be carred straight through In attrac
tive slices of part meat and part stuff
ing. Wipe the meat with a damp doth.
Sprinkle the Inside of the pocket with
salt and pepptr, pile the hot stuffing
In lightly, and sew the edges together,
Hob salt, pepper, and flour over the
outside. If the ahoulder has only a
very thin fat covering, lay several
strips of bacon over the top. Place
the roast on a rack In an open pan
without water. Sear for SO minutes In

Every mother Is relieved as the
time comes when her child learns to
dress and undress himself and go to
the toilet alone. She Is then much
more free fr other household duties.
Training In self-dressing may be
started between two and three years
old and a boy will soon take great
pride In being independent.
Good clothing design Is the first re
quisite In encouraging self-help In
dressing. Small trousers should he
made with as fnw fustenlngs as possi
ble, and these should be placed within
easy reach of a two-year-old's little
Angers. The child learns by repetition
if the buttons and buttonholes are al
ways In the same place at first, so It
is best to use only one pattern until
the little one has completely mastered
its fustenlngs. Vary the material, col

is to make a two-button drop front
which fastens midway between the

If bacon Is laid over the roast, shorten
the time of searing so as to avoid
overbrownlng. Reduce the temperature
of the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit,

until tender. From 2H to 3 hours will
be required to cook a medium siied
