Personalize the gift wrap Iced gingersnaps, frosted sugar cookies, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate coconut bars, fruit and nut breads - you can almost smell the tantalizing aromas of holiday baking that are filling family Food Continued from page 61 As I walked into the office one morning, I ran into his speech- writer and he said, "Anne, do you know why Sen. Dole did not say 'good morning' to you today?" I responded, "No, Mike, I didn'.t re- ally think about that." To which Mike responded, "Well that's be- cause I did not write on a 3-by-5- inch card, 'Anne, how are you this morning?' and hand it to him." Whether you like Bob Dole or not, you have to admire the fact that he can and does laugh at himself.

It is mentioned in Julius Caesar's memoirs as a staple for his legionnaires, along with the high quality of wheat and olives produced in the area. Chianti is a very nice dry red wine. Be sure to choose a "Classi- co Superiore." These wines are relatively inexpensive. The step up from a generic Chianti to a Classico Superiore is worth the expense. In fact, I recommend you try the comparison [or your own interest. Look for a San Leonino Chianti Classico Riserva. e Cfrio Nd6d s at'ays a blended wine. Usually, it will be 70 percent to 80 percent San- giovese, with the balance in Canaiolo, although some other va- rietals such as Mammolo, Merlot kitchens this time of year. Home- made baked goods are a wonderful gift for family and friends, and you can make them even more person- al with creative "wrapping" ideas. Have a favorite fisherman? naut once - back when astronauts were real heroes. They still are as far as I'm concerned. My astro- naut walked on the moon. When I worked for him in Washington, D.C., Nell Armstrong would come to meet with him. We would walk by astronaut Armstrong in the re- ception area and say, "Show us your American Express card," and he would laugh. Our astronaut would call us from a pay phone when he was traveling and say, "Stand by one," and drop the phone. We also "suited him up" when he had to go to a press con- ference. So we got to the point that when he got a phone call and was out of town, we said, "He's on the moon, but we expect him back shortly." All this has zip to do with the point, but it is fun to remember the good times. John Glenn.

Bring wate:r to a boil, cover and simmer gently for or Cabernet Sauvignon may be used. These wines are less well- known, which is a shame since by law they are required to be aged at least three years, two ,of which must be in barrels. Look for Tenu- ta Trerosi Vino Nobile de Mon- tepulciano, which is import(ed by Wilson Daniels. Last, but far from iea:st, is Brunello Di Montalcino. I[ have recommended and discussedl these wines in a previous column. "These are the most desired wines off Tus- cany, and as a result, are gemerally most expensive. Look for aa dark garnet color.

Back to Bob Dole for one - I promise - paragraph, First and most importantly, the senator has a 16-year-old dog named Leader who came from the Hu- mane Society. Dole wrote, a great book recently and Leader shares the photo on the cover. (Is this "Focus on Food," "Focus on Dogs", or "Focus on Politics?")
