CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Oct. 15 - Oct. 18 - 91 FOOD & DRINK New how..to books focus on kid-friendly recipes, activities Seasonal ideas involve the whole family Kiwi and pudding make a great snack for your little goblins - or to serve at a Halloween event. This easy-to-make recipe is from Bridget Swinney's book, "Healthy Food for Healthy Kids" 1 3 l/2-ounce package of instant vanilla pudding mix 2 C of milk green food coloring 4 sliced kiwi fruit 1/2 C of raisins Prepare the pudding with milk according to the package direc- tions and add green food coloring until desired shade is reached. Put the green pudding into individual small bowls. Cut two kiwi slices into quarters and place on the pudding as eyes. Line the edge of the bowls with kiwi slices, keeping the peel side up. Use raisins to make mouths. You can also use furry kiwi to be the bumps for an edible pudding alligator. You can eat the skin of the kiwi if it's been thoroughly washed. Makes six 1/3-cup servings. There's much more to a pumpkin "Halloween is the holiday second only to .Christmas in excite- ment for your child," said Vicky Lansky. "And adults can also an- ticipate this holiday quite a bit." "Feed Me! I'm Yours" In her book "Feed Me! I'm Yours," Vicki Lansky has six great ways to use your pumpkin, including making "pumpkin fries". 1. Fix up some pumpkin fries. It's easy - cut a small, fresh pump- kin in half. Peel. Cut into matchstick slices and toss with 2 or 3 ta- blespoons peanut oil. Bake on a cookie sheet in a hot oven until brown and tender.. Stir often. Sprinkle with cinnamon to taste. 2. Don't throw away those wet, string-laden seeds from your Jack-O- Lantern. Wash the seeds and soak them overnight in salted water. Back on a cookie sheet at 300 degrees for 20 min- utes. 3. Plant a few seeds in the garden when spring comes. 4. Bak6! There are loads of recipes that call for pumpkin, including muffins, dessert cake and ice-cream pie. Canned pumpkin often has a recipe on the label. You can also find several in "Feed Me, I'm Yours!" by Vicky Lansky (Meadowbrook Press). 9 "Feed Me! I'm Yours" contains ideas for the young and young at heart. 'If yo u want to live a long and happy life, jog from bar to bar' The past week was a pip for me. Tryin, to stay awake through 2 boring debates Jamal and Kobe's plights, Mount St. He- len' s bellyache and Joe Bastardi trying t( gin up a low in the Gulf into another pos- sible hurricane, wore me out. Fortunately my favorite food philoso- pher Irene Chalmers posted her monthly column. In it she mentions among other things this interesting factoid. Even though farm-raised salmon has a slightly higher level of PCBs than wild, both are "1/100 the strict FDA tolerance level." "We are," she writes, "escalating minor risk to gigantic proportions and we must separate provable, cold, hard facts from red hot rhetoric. Risk is a relative thing." She goes on to say, "statistically doctors are 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners and you are more likely to die from eating potato salad than from being shot in the head." My favorite Irene scribble and a cool way for me to segue into the wine stuff is the following gem. "They say wine is good for you, and so is exercise. If you want to live a long and happy life, it seems you should jog from bar tO bar." When you arrive you should ask for a glass of Merlot and some fish and chips or a grilled salmon with hollandaise sauce. Personally, I prefer a nice Maconnais to Continued on page 92 Don't forget ; tbout the Nina, the Pinta or the Santa Mafia I apologize, i got so caught up in the intensely intellectual cam- paign debates that I completely forgot about Christopher Colum- bus Day. But it is never too late to salute this great American. So listen my children and you shall hear the great expedition of this great explorer. On Aug. 3, 1492, Christopher Columbus invented the Coast Guard because he did not want to go to Iraq and thought the Earth was round and therefore, he was safe sailing in circles. He could not get another draft deferment because he had a degree in every subject offered in those days. So he acquired three swift boats: The Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. He equipped each boat + FOCUS ON FOOD Anne Graham with supplies from the PX includ- ing food, wine and water and set off to go in circles until there was peace in Iraq and everyone had a ZIP code. Needless to note, he is still out there, somewhere. Unfor- tunately, on Oct. 10, after 34 days at sea, the sailors became hysteri- cal and were ready to mutiny, many of them believing that since the world was fiat, any moment they would fall off. A splinter group therefore start- ed Tall 10-gaUon Hat Texans for Ponce de Leon, but I'll get back to that later. Let's stay the course with Boston Brahmins for Chris. Columbus convinced the muti- neers to wait three more days be- fore they jumped ship or was it four more years? Anyway, the very next day they saw tree branches in the ocean and knew hope was on the way. But it's hard work. It's hard work. And, unfortunately the Santa Maria ran into a coral reef. Nonetheless, Chris returned to his homeland where he was received as a na- tional hero. Banquets and celebra- tions were held in honor. He was given the Purple Heart and all sorts of groovy medals. Unfortunately, at the same time a cub reporter named Kitty Kelley who had her first internship with the National Enquirer discovered solid facts by anonymous sources who knew that the world was fiat, but would not go on the record be- cause they really wanted to get in- to Yale. Nevertheless, they were willing to confirm anonymously with sunglasses and fake voices on a news show that Christopher Columbus left 39 crewmen behind at the coral reef. So when Chris threw his medals over the Great Wall at Senator Marco Polo's sug- gestion, it really did not mean anything because they weren't his in the first place. Many of the Fuchsia States in the Kingdom thought he was not worthy of his medals, but John McCain said that even though he knew the world was flat, he thought Chris was Well intentioned when he led us in circles. Others though, were not so kind. They said he didn't even come back on the Pinta. They said he actually came back in a used Pinto with racing stripes, which Ralph Nader (who is unsafe at any speed) condemned.
