The Art of Serving Food Attractively...

...printed in 1951 and written by Mary Albert Wenker...

Just two quick tips on appetizers:

Hollow out tiny cook beets to form cups and fill with chopped cooked clams.
or
Parboil onions and scoop out center to form onion cups. Refill with a colorful relish or tiny hot meatballs.


Say it with me...tiny, hot meatballs. It just rolls off the tongue.

Tomorrow I will turn older. I will take the day off, go shopping, maybe see a movie and I think I will insist upon linguini and meatballs for dinner. It should be a grand day!
