OMELETTES ARE EASY [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 18 June 1947

This is particularly the case when the omelettes are filled withli sonething fairly substantial, sikch as fried mushrooms, chopped haili, or small dice-shaped potatoes previously part-boiled and tossed in hot fat,.

BUTTER GOES FURTHER [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Independent — 18 June 1947
BUTTER GOES. FURTHER After experimenting with various ways of making butter go further, the Rationing Commission considers thiat this recipe is as near perfection as possible. It.has added nutriment and looks and tastes like the. real thing. Do not use for baking, as it is intended to be a perfect spread. It is invaluable for spreading . on bread, scones, biscuits and toast. The recipe is: In a small saucepan put 2 heaped tablespoons of full cream powdered milk, add 1 teaspoon powdered gela tine, and I teaspoon of salt. Mix In gradually J breakfast cup milk and stir over. fire until hot, but NOT boiling. Cool a little and. cut in i lb butter. Stir and blend with wooden spoon and pour into bowl. This will give you the bulk of one pound of butter, and it really goes even further than that because it spreads so easily.. Try it and send the coupons you save to Box X.Y.Z.; G.P.O., in your capital city, to help the Food, for Britain appeal.

The main consensus of opinion i~ that the throwing off'of restraint by the' car drinking is' the cause, and. it has been suggested that cbntrol led liquor in the hlall itself would'be more conducive to civilised drink ing. 'Against this is the ' traditional manner in which our people attend dances.: Few ever attend in definite iparties,' and therefore the. suggested cabaret dances for; the',larger func tions ...
