BANANAS WITH OATMEAL

Add a teaspoonful of salt to a quart of rapidly
boiling water and sprinkle in two cups of rolled oatmeal. Set the
saucepan into another dish of boiling water (double boiler), cover and
cook at least one hour. Longer cooking is preferable. Have ready half a
banana for each person to be served. The banana should be peeled and cut
in thin slices. Put a spoonful of the hot oatmeal over the bananas in
the serving dishes. Pass at the same time sugar and milk or cream. Other
cereals may be served with bananas in the same way.

FIG AND RHUBARB
Wash two bunches of rhubarb and cut into inch pieces
without peeling. Put into boiler with a cupful sugar and four or five
figs cut in inch pieces. Put on the cover and cook over hot water until
the rhubarb is tender and the syrup is rich and jelly-like in
consistency. Raisins are nice cooked in rhubarb the same way. If
preferred, and you are to have a hot oven anyway, put the rhubarb and
figs or raisins in a stone pot, cover closely and bake in the oven until
jellied.

HEAVENLY CHICKEN

Serves 4

If you’re using fresh asparagus spears for this, here’s how to tell the tender part from the part that’s too tough and fibrous to be good eating. Take the bud end of an asparagus spear in one hand and the butt end in the other and then bend the spear until it breaks. The part on the bud side is tender enough to use. The spears will always break at just that point. But don’t throw away the tough end. If you peel the tough end with a potato peeler, you’ll get down to the tender, edible part underneath and can use that portion also. Cook the leftover parts until tender and use them in soups or omelettes.

4 chicken breast halves

12 fresh or frozen asparagus spears

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup butter or margarine

4 tablespoons flour

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

1/2 cup dry white wine

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1/4 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup crushed crackers

On microwave-safe roasting pan, arrange breasts, bone side up, in a circular pattern. Cover loosely with plastic wrap; microwave at MEDIUM-HIGH (70% power) 8 minutes per pound. Halfway through cooking time turn breasts over; re-cover with plastic wrap and complete cooking. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes.

Rinse asparagus and remove tough end. On microwave-safe rack, arrange asparagus with stem ends toward outside. Place rack in microwave-safe utensil. Add water; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at HIGH (100% power) 5 to 7 minutes or until tender-crisp. Let stand, covered, 3 to 5 minutes.

In 4-cup glass container, place butter; microwave at HIGH 1 minute. Blend flour and ginger into melted butter. Gradually add chicken broth, wine, salt and pepper, stirring constantly. Microwave at HIGH 5 minutes or until thick and smooth, stirring 3 times.

In 12 x 8-inch microwave-safe dish, arrange cooked asparagus, with stem ends toward outside; pour half of wine sauce over asparagus. Arrange chicken breasts on top with meatier portions toward outside; spoon remaining sauce over breasts. Sprinkle pecans and cracker crumbs on top; cover with a double thickness of paper towels. Microwave at MEDIUM-HIGH 5 minutes or until heated through.
