See your Iiouse as others see it.
Try loking at the back, front and
sides of your house from the out
side and see what others see. Do
the window shades and curtains
need straightening'.' Are the
grounds ueat'.' Next, enter the front
door as if you were a stranger and
take a quick Uut all-inclusive glance
around. Thus in actually seeing
your house as others see it, you
mav at the same time note some
changes which you, seeing through
their eyes, will want to make.
SHAMROCK FIG COOKIES
To keep the food budget down
serve meat cuts that are in less
demand. Among these are pot
roasts of beef and veal, beef short
ribs, beef flank steak, pork and
veal' shoulder, breast of lamb and
veal, lamb neck slices, lamb and
veal shanks, brisket of beef and
beef heel of round.

A lot of tables will be wearing
a touch of green on St. Patrick's
Day, especially if there are young
sters in the family lo help with
the decorating. Whether it's a
special party or just a family sup
per many people will enjoy some
special dishes in honor of I he day.
If there's a shamrock cooky cut
ter in your kitchen there are loads
of easy' ways you can use it for
fun-fare. To begin with a first
course, for instance, cut sham
rocks out of slices ol white or
brown bread, saving the cut-away
parts for bread puddings and dry
crumbs. Then spread the sham
rocks with cottage or cream cheese
flavored with onioft juice, sprinkle
them with linely chopped parsley
and use them for canapes. The
canapes will look especially prettv
and taste awfully good, too, served
with tomato juice. Pass them in
Ihe living room if you like before
the main course is served at the
dining table.
If the first course is to be soup,
spread the bread shamrocks with
softened butter or fortified mar
garine and toast lightly, .'In n float

bowls of soup. A good c'loi
choice for the soup would be cream

Lime-flavored gelatin can he
featured in a salad or dessert.
One of the packaged flavored gela
tin desserts may be used or it can
be made at home from unflavored
gelatin, fruit juice and a little
green coloring. Mold the gelatin in
a shallow metal pan and cut Ihe
shamrocks out of it when it is
firm. This may then be served on
a bed of shredded green cabbage
or on watercress with mayonnaise
or mayonnaise-type salad dressing.
Or use the sparkling cut-outs for
dessert with a soft custard sauce or
whipped evaporated milk or cream.
The following recipe for rolled
cookies may be cut in any shape.
If you want to make them into

cutting it out. If this cardboard
cutter is floured and used as you
would an ordinary cuLter it will

vantage of these home-made cut
ters is that if two or three young
sters are going to make the cookies
they can all have a piece of dough
and no argument over the cullei!
Kigs were chosen for the cooky
filling not only because they taste
delicious used in this way but be
cause they are plentiful and rea
sonably priced.

egg and vanilla and mix well. Add
the flour alternately with the milk
in four additions, beginning and
ending with the flour. Stir enough

in refrigerator until firm enough
lo roll. Flour board and rolling pin
lightly; if cloth pastry set is used
flour according to manufacturer's
directions Roll dough one-eighth-inch
thick with rolling pin. Cut
with floured shamrock cutter.
Put a small portion of the fig fill
ing on shamrock; the amount of
filling used for each cooky will de
pend on the size of thi; cutter

rounded teaspoon. Place another
shamrock on top and prev edges
