Stale slices, dry crusts and other
leftovers in the breadbox can make
scores of delicious dishes yet often
go into the garbage pail instead. In
recent studies of food wastes in
many cities, it has been shown that
bread is the most wasted food in
American kitchens. This is a cue
for you to hunt up all the recipes
you can find for bread stuffings,
scalloped mixtures, desserts . . all
sorts of delicious dishes using bread
Or bread crumbs.
Sliced bread that has become too
hard for the table can be used to
make one of several different toasts.
For cinnamon toast, a breakfast
favorite, toast slices of bread, butter
lightly and sprinkle with a mixture
of cinnamon and sugar in the fol
lowing proportions 1 teaspoon cin
namon and 2 tablespoons sugar,
brown or white. Place for a moment
under the broiler if you like.
French toast is a grand alternate
for Sunday morning pancakes. Mix
2 beaten eggs. 1 cup milk, A tea
spoon salt. Dip bread into the mix
ture. Drain and' fry on hot griddle,
in skillet, or in sandwich grille.
.Serve hot with sugar, jam, cinna
mon, honey or sirup.
Cheese toast is hearty enough foi
a main dish. Lay slices of sharp
cheese, salted and peppered, be
tween slices of unbuttiered bread.
Brown the sandwiches on both
sides in butter in a heavy frying
pan, cooking rather slowly until the
cheese melts. Or toast bread, then
place in deep dish. Cover with thin
slices of cheese, sprinkle with a
dash of mustard and a lititle papri
ka, and pour a little top milk over
the cheese and toast. Place in an
oven until cheese melts.
Crusts and other odds and ends
of bread can make delicious bread
puddings. Here is one variation.
Bi'ked Lemon Pudding
1 cup dry bread crumbs; 2 cups
milk; xk cup butter; V2 cup sugar;
2 egg yolks; 1 lemon; 2 egg whites;
4 tbsp sugar.
Soak bread crumbs in milk for a
half hour. Cream butter and sugar;
add lightly beaten egg yolks, the
juice and rind of a lemon, and the
soaked crumbs and milk. Pour into
buttered casserole and bake 20 min
utes in a slow oven (325 deg.).
Cover with maringue made by
whipping the whites and folding in
4 tbsp sugar. Return to oven until
Mrs. America
Meets the War
Mrs. America would rather have
the snap back in her girdle sooner
than washing machines refrigerators
and eledtric irons, accordjing to a
War Production board survey. The
check-up was made to find out
what Mr. and Mrs. America miss
most right now to help the Office
of Civilian Requirements map out
production requirements for 1944
The WPB already has revoked pro
duction limitations on corsets, gird
les and other foundation garments
made from elastic fabric, the elastic
thread to be used to be made from
synthetic rubber. However, no great
increase in the amount of these
elastic-type garmens available will
be noticed immediately, and it is
not expected that all-rubber gar
ments will be available for a few
months. ,

placed under price control to stop
price rises dead in their tracks.
Yam prices were "frozen" at the

mately 40,000 units in the first
