You simply can't have enough tasty snack ideas
As holiday season approaches, it's time to start thinking about entertaining with tasty snacks -- which is why 500 Tasty Snacks Ideas for Entertaining could come in handy. Found at the FleaMart on Highway 40 for a very reasonable 50 cents, this 50-year-old relic features recipes for hot and cold canapes, hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, jellied salads, frozen salads and sweet snacks.

The 48-page booklet, illustrated with distinctly unappealing black-and-white photographs, was was edited by Ruth Berolzheimer, director of the Culinary Arts

Institute ("One of America's foremost organizations devoted to the

science of Better Cookery") and published by the Consolidated Book Publishers of Chicago in 1949.

Among its suggestions for entertaining at home: "Maids may circulate among the guests, frequently seated at small bridge tables."

Many of the menu selections still sound very tasty: cheese souffle, roquefort puffs, Oysters Rockefeller, broiled mushrooms. Other ideas come off as a little dated: stuffed frankfurters, bologna sausage cubes, tongue mousse and shrimp wiggle. As for Ham Banana Roll -- the easy recipe follows -- you'll likely be the only guest bringing this oddly phallic 1949 innovation to the cocktail party.

HAM BANANA ROLL

6 thin slices of ham

Prepared mustard

6 firm bananas

Cheese sauce

Spread slices of ham with mustard. Wrap a banana in each ham slice and place in shallow baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over bananas and bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 30 minutes.
