Cut calories
Those extra calories add up
during the holiday season. Ex
tension home economist Greta C.
Vairo, offers some suggestions for
cutting down on calories and still
enjoying Christmas meals.
For an appetizer, try fresh raw
vegetables with a dip made from
low-fat yogurt rather than sour
cream. If you serve soup made
from stock, skim the fat off. You
won’t lose the flavor, but you will
reduce the calories. Also, cream
soups or those with a cheese base
have more calories than those
made with a broth base.
Instead of the usual Christmas
ham, serve turkey or chicken,
roasted with your favorite stuffing.
If you choose to prepare beef, pork
or lamb, serve it well drained and
trimmed of visible fat When
preparing gravy from meat
drippings, cool the gravy quickly'
in the refrigerator or freezer, then

why did I have to fill in my Social
Security number? Eventually I did
unearth the list of prizes which
turned out to be junk jewdry.
The trashcan grew fatter.
Then came the latest, an in
vitation to visit a new recreational
facility resort, for which I would be
rewarded with my choice from
three prizes for listening to a sales
That brought bade a memory.
About ten years ago, planning a
Sunday drive to look at the fall
foliage, we took up one of those
resort land ads on their visit offer.
When he learned we were farmers,
the salesman became very rude
and disinterested, ultimately
admitting that they didn’t like to
talk with our kind. Seems that
farmers are accustomed to dealing
with land prices of a more realistic
ilk than what they were charging
for a quarter-acre in the middle of
some weekend development.
Still, we ate their free lunch,
allowed our toddlers to play on
their playground equipment and
insisted on being given the tour, at
the end of which we insisted on
receiving our “free prize.” We still
use a few of the unbroken glasses
from that large set of glassware,
and often chuckle about where
they came from.
this whole account recalls to
mind history lessons of how
colonial land speculators once
purchased Manhattan Island from
the Indians for|24of blankets - and

juice or herbs. If you want to use
butter, drizzle a tablespoon or two
over the vegetables in the serving
bowl, rather than placing the
butter dish on the table. Serve
baked potatoes instead of mashed.
This eliminates the added calories
from the butter and milk. If
making mashed potatoes, use 2
percent or skim milk.
For dessert, you can reduce the
calories in pumpkin pie by making
it with skim milk or 2 percent low
fat milk. Instead of a pastry crust,
make a graham cracker crust
using less butter. Or, better yet,
make a pumpkin custard rather
than a pie. In many recipes, such
as mincemeat pie, you can reduce
the amount of sugar called for by
up to half. Other good low caloried
desserts are fruit salads, crepes
with fruit filling or a yogurt perbit
instead of one made with ice
cream. Moderation is the key to
low calorie eating.
