THE USES OF FOOD
To build new tissues (muscle-tissue, bone tissue, and nerve tissue) to repair those issues that are worn out.

To furnish the body with energy for work and play. (heat is a form of energy).

To regulate the body processes; to keep the body in good working-order.

To promote the growth and to keep the body healthy.

BASE-FORMING, ACID-FORMING FOODS.
Besides grouping our foods under the headings of six foodstuffs, we classify them as base forming and acid forming. These terms do not refer to the taste of food but rather to the use of foods in the body. Foods are acid-forming or base forming according to the ash that is left after they are digested and utilized by the body. The body needs both types of foods so that one counteracts the other, preserving neutrality that is essential for health.

Base-forming foods are milk, milk-products, fruits, and vegetables, except prunes, plums, cranberries and corn.
Acid-forming foods are meat, fish, egg, grains, prunes, plums, cranberries, and corn.

POTATOES
Potatoes are a big part of most meals. Did you know there is eight ways (maybe more) of preparing them?

2 tablespoons butter.
4 tablespoons hot milk.
½ teaspoon salt.
Mash the cooked potatoes with a potatoe-masher until soft; add the butter, salt, pepper, and milk, and beat all until light and fluffy. Pile lightly in a hot serving-dish.

BAKED POTATOES
Select smooth, medium-sized potatoes. Wash well with brush. Bake in a hot oven 45 minutes, or until done. Break the skins to let the steam escape and serve at once. If baked potatoes stand they become soggy.

LIGHTSIDE

The first day teacher was reading the story of Three Little Pigs to her class. She came to the part in the story where
the first pig was after building materials for her home.

She read "so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and asked". "Sir may I have some of that straw to build my house?" The teacher stopped reading and asked the class, "And what do you think that man said?"

One little boy raised his hand and said, "I think he said" "Holy crap! A talking pig!"

CLEANING AROUND THE KITCHEN
Care Of Silver; to avoid scratching, wash kinds separately. Hold a few pieces in the hand and wash. Use hot, soapy water. Dry and polish by rubbing with a towel. Silver is brighter if wiped without rinsing. Store in cases or drawer divided into sections for the purpose.

CLEANING SILVER; Use an aluminium pan. Put water, salt, and baking-soda into the pan. (For each quart of water use 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon soda). Place silver in pan. There should be enough water to cover it. Place pan over flame and heat it until the tarnish disappears. Pour off the water, wash in hot, soapy water, and dry thoroughly.

CLEANING COPPER AND BRASS.
Wash thoroughly. Dip soft cloth in vinegar and then in whiting or salt and scour the metal. Wash and dry, rubbing with a soft cloth. A commercial cleaner "Brasso", is also effective in cleaning.

CLEANING ALUMINUM
Use mild soap and hot water. Do not use soda or ammonia. A little weak acid will brighten aluminium. Rub with steel wool when necessary. Boiling with fresh water will soak off any burned food.

NICKEL
Wash with soap and water. Polish with sifted whiting applied with
a soft cloth dampened with ammonia or water. Let dry and rub.
