CO 80202. 000 T/p$ Home for the holidays Time gets incredibly tight during the holidays, especially if you're playing both cook and hostess. These tips will help squeeze a bit more time out of this busy season: Cooking the turkey and the stuffing sepa- rately can save time and ener- gy since an unstuffed bird cooks in less time and guarantees cooking. even Design a cooking timetable to avoid a last-minute rush. Don't do it all yourself, either. When guests offer to bring a dish--let them! But be specilic about what you really need. Adding one more stuffing dish to a table already stuffed full isn't going to make either you or the guest bringing the unneeded dish feel very festive. Holiday dinners usually mean lots of mashed potatoes so get out your crockery cooker to help with the party. Prepare your potatoes a few hours in advance and add a little extra milk before transferring the fluffed vegetable to your crock pot. Set on low, dot with butter or margarine and cover. An easy way to clean the glass pans encrusted with burnt- on is to cover the mess with a damp sponge or wet paper towels. Come back in an hour and wipe clean. messa Dr AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION, Support Christmas Seals. Because...When You Can't Breathe, Nothing Else Matters. 1-800-LUNG.USA or AOL Keyword: ALA
