Both A and B teams will participate, both meeting Lau- rel Hill. Besides the Bocats and the top-ranked Pirates.

The excitement should begreat, so save up some gas and make it over to Ponce de Leon for some fine high school basket- ball, starting at 6:00 onThurs- day, Friday, and Saturday of this week. Also a reminder that the By Mrs. Mary Ellen Haynes "Venison steaks from a boned deer are cut differently than domestic meat. Cut all venison steaks thin, except those coming ~rom the loin and tenderloin. Steaks from tenderloin and loin can be cut either thick or thin, depending on your preference. A thin venison steak is about I/4 inch thick and a thick one is about 3/4 inch. The diameter of small steaks can be enlarged by butterflying them. A but- terflied steak consists of two steaks laid side by side but connected by tissues on the edge. The chunks of round from the hind leg make excellent steaks when cut thin. Have the chunk partially thawed by dinner time but cut it into I/4 to 3/8 inch steaks just before frying. Fry in hot skil; let or frying pan. The fry- ing time is about 90 seconds on a side for a steak cut 1/4 inch thick. Fry steaks just enough to brown the outside but leave the center slightly pink. The steaks should be juicy and tender. If steak is dry or tough, it was cooked too long. "Steaks from the loin are usually cut 3/4 inch thick. How- ever, they can be as thinas I/4 inch and as thick as 1 I/2 inches.

After half an hour PHONE 858-6081 ~,ROUTE 1, BOX 18 fLORALA, ALA|AMA) , I I parboiling, the liver may be removed and sliced thin. Then fry it in bacon drippings until thoroughly done. Another way of preparing liver involves cutting it into quarter-inch slices and soak- ing these for an hour in cold water. Then rinse well in warm water, wipe dry, and roll each piece in flour sea- soned with salt and papper. Fry the pieces in bacon drip- pings. When the liver is near- ly done, bacon may be fried in the same pan, and you'll have a delicious platter of liver and bacon. For an add- ed touch, put slices of raw onion on the platter. VENISON ROAST - 1 (4-5 Lb.) boneless venison, I/4 pound sliced bacon, I/4 teaspoon pepper, pinch sugar, I quart buttermilk, 1 teaspoon salt, 2-4 tablespoons sour cream (optional), 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar Soak the ;nison in butter- milk to cover for 2-3 days, turning once or twice. Re- move meat and place in roast- ing pan, reserving the butter- milk. Cover the meat with bacon and roast, covered, in a moderate oven, 350 F, for about 40 minutes, putting it over the top of the roast when you turn it. If you use an oven ther- mometer, the roast will be rare at 135, medium at 140, and well done at 150 F. Unless the venison is old and there- fore tough, it should be pink if not rare. For the last 15 minutes of cooking, add salt and pepper, remove cover and let the meat brown. To make gravy, remove meat from roaster, scrape all the brown bits from the bottom of the pan into the gravy. Thicken with a little flour and water paste. Add I/2 cup of buttermilk, sour cream, if you wish, sugar and vinegar. If not using sou, r cream, use I cup buttermilk. Strain gravy. Six to eight servings. DEER PATTIES - 3 pounds ground deer tenderloin, 2 tablespoons grated onion, I egg, lightly beaten, 1/4 teaspoon chili powder, I/8 teaspoon pepper, 3 tablespoons very fine bread crumbs, 2 teaspoons salt, I/2 teaspoon turmeric, I/4 teaspoon garlic salt. Blend ingredients thorough- ly, leaving out garlic or onion if you prefer, and mold into patties. Place in I/2 cup of margarine or clear bacon fat, and brown. When browned, add I/3 cup of water and co- ver. Simmer for half an hour. VENISON POT ROAST - 3 to 4 pounds venison, I tablespoon salt, 2 cups water or 1 can n/son cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 cup flour, dash of pepper, 1 pkg. dry onion soup mix. Rub meat with mixture of flour, salt and pepper. Brown on all sides in hot fat in 4- quart Dutch oven. Add water and onion soup mix. Cover tightly. Cook slowly for 7. to 3 hours or until tender. Turn meat occasionally while cooking, adding more water if necessary. Yield: 8-10 ser- vings. VENlSON SWISS STEAK - 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 2 teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons fat, 3/4 cups flour, 4 venison steaks, 2 tablespoons onion salt. Combine flour, salt and pepper. Cut steak into indi- vidual servings. Pound dry ingredients into steak. Brown steaks in hot fat in Dutch oven. Sprinkle each piece with onion salt. Remove meat; make gravy. Replace meat; cover. Cook over low heat for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until steak is tender. Yield: 6 servings. VENISON CHOP SUEY - 1 pound vension, cut into cubes, 1 cup chopped onions, 2 table- spoons molasses, 1 can bean sprouts, 1/4 cup butter or margarine, 2 cups chopped ce- lery, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 3 tablespoons cornstarch.

In the struggle to save every possible penny on food, take a look at your garbage. Are you using left-overs? Does your family refuse to eat certain foods? Are you discarding good food? The average American fa- mily, according to studies, throws away two-thirds of a pound of food per person a day. In a month this is 20 pounds of food discarded per person. Buying in quantity can cost less. But if you permit half of the 20 pounds of potatoes to ruin there is no saving. Quan- tity buying also involves the use of large storage areas and pre- sents the danger of over-buying perishable items. Be alert also to misleading foods. A jar of juice may cost consid- erable less than a can and con- tain half the quanitity. A label may indicate meat and be mostly liquid. To improve food buying try these suggestions: Avoid "fast move" low price fruits and vegetables. They are usually poor quality and result in preparation waste. Use alternate food forms. Dry milk costs less than whole milk and keeps much better. Use left-overs in soup or TV dinners. Freeze for later uses. Use bones to make soup and broth. Avoid throw-away purchases. Buy for the use. Perhaps in- stant mashed potatoes are a bet- ter buy than fresh ones after you throw away the peelings. Know what is edible and fi- gure the cost per saving.
