Be careful where you store chocolate

Chocolate hints: Never store chocolate around garlic, onions or spices, because it absorbs the flavors of these items.

Beauty tip: Use baking soda to clean your fingernails.

Cleaning hint: Sprinkle baking soda on a damp cloth, using circular motions to clean the glass on your oven door.

Removing odor from hands: Rub your hands with fresh lemon juice to get rid of fish and onion odor.

Sweet and sour green beans

1 can green beans

1/4 cup vinegar

1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons flour

Cold water

1 tablespoon of margarine or butter

Drain beans, reserve liquid. Add vinegar, sugar and the reserved liquid. Bring to a boil. Mix flour with cold water to make a paste. Add gradually to hot liquid, stirring until slightly thickened. Add margarine or butter. Put beans into a container, cover with hot liquid and cool. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Heat before serving.

Potato salad

1 1/2 pounds red potatoes, cooked and diced

3 boiled eggs, sliced

3 small sweet pickles, sliced

1 1/4 cup mayonnaise

Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Company kraut

1 can kraut

1/4 cup cooking oil

1 or 2 pimentos

Heat all ingredients. Serve hot as a vegetable or chill for a salad.

Company broccoli

2 packages frozen broccoli, cooked

1 jar of chopped pimento

2 cans cream of mushroom soup

Bread crumbs

Blend all ingredients and cook, except the breadcrumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 or 30 minutes. Spread bread crumbs on top.

Cooking hint: Whenever cooking cabbage or broccoli put a little vinegar into the water to help to absorb the odor or put two pecans in the shells into the water. This works, because I have tried it.

Cheese tip: Let cheese stay at room temperature before eating it.
