Remember those savory Sunday dinners Mom used to make—pot roast
oven-browned potatoes and all the trimmings? Remember all those hours
Mom spent in the kitchen putting that meal together?
Instead, start with a frozen dinner, which can be ready in minutes.
One New Armour Dinner Classic features Yankee Pot Roast, potatoes
and vegetables, for example.
While the dinner is in the oven, toss together an Apple Raisin Cobbler,
using a convenient biscuit mix. The cobbler can finish baking while you're
enjoying the roast.
Apple Raisin Cobbler
3 tablespoons lightly packed brown sugar, divided
I tablespoon raisins
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon buttermilk baking mix, divided
1 tablespoon dark rum
1 large baking apple, cored and sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 tablespoon milk
In small saucepan, combine 2 tablespoons sugar, raisins, cinna-
mon, 1 tablespoon baking mix and rum. Stir in apples. Cook over
medium heat until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. In
small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup baking mix and 1 table-
spoon sugar. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in milk.
Divide apple mixture between two 10 oz. custard cups. Spoon
biscuit mixture on top. Bake in 350"F oven 20 to 25 minutes or
until golden brown. Makes 2 servings.

Discouraging myths about old
age abound. Myths like: senility,
osteoporosis or impotence are a
normal part of the aging process.
Not so. These conditions are dis-
eases that can often be prevented
and frequently treated. Follow
these simple guidelines to help en-
sure a longer, healthier life.
• Eat Well. Many old people,
especially those who live alone,
don't bother to cook nutritional
meals. Yet proper nutrition is es-
sential to maintaining your health
Eat a well-balanced diet that's high
in carbohydrate and fiber, and low
in fat and cholesterol. If you can't
manage alone, ask for help
• Keep Exercising. Exercise
can extend life. Studies have proven
that a moderate amount of aerobic
exercise on a regular basis can im-
prove the mood, slow the aging pro-
cess and prevent diseases such as
heart attacks, stroke, hypertension
and osteoporosis. Get involved in a
program tailored to your abilities.
• Review Your Drugs. Your
medications may be causing fatigue,
depression, impotence or other side-
effects—symptoms that you may
attribute to old age. Ask your doctor
about possible side-effects and drug
interactions, don't overdo over-the-
counter drugs, and never use old
pills left over in the medicine chest.
• Don't Isolate Yourself.
People need close relationships
with others, especially during
times when you lose a loved one
Work at making new friends of
all ages. Join a social club or or-
ganization or get involved with
your church or temple. And share

Raw Fish A Food Safety Hazard
COLLEGE STATION -It's hard
to go wrong with high-protein,
low-calorie fish-unless you eat it
"The growing popularity of un-
dercooked fish or raw fish dishes
such as sushi, sashirni, ceviche and
others has resulted in an increase
in cases of disease attributable to
fish parasites," says food safety
expert Marilyn Haggard.
"Properly canned or frozen fish'
pose no danger of infection," notes
the Texas A&M University Agricul-
tural Extension Service specialist.
Cooking fresh fish until all parts
of the fish have reached a
temperature of 145 degrees Fahr
enheit will also kill parasites, she
"Frying, baking or broiling fish
until it flakes with a fork is still
good advice," Haggard says. "Fish

According to the specilist, brin-

methods that kill parasites, while

"Commercially prepared lox, or
smoked salmon, is the brined and
smoked." she notes. "But ceviche
can be hazardours because the
lime juice used in the marinade
may not kill all parasites."
Haggard says that freezing fish
at minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit for
3-5 days will also prevent illness.
Given the health risks involved,
consumers would be wise to avoid
raw or undercooked seafood,
stresses the specialist.
your feelings with your friends^
• Keep Active. It's impoi
tant to feel you're still making a
contribution to society after you
retire. Get a part-time job, volun-
teer for an organization or pur-
sue a hobby of yours.
• Fight "Ageism". The sad
truth is that old people are discrimi
nated against, especially old women.
This "ageism" is unhealthy. Don't
give in by accepting the myths of
old age And, if you don't like t\^
way someone is treating you, speak
up and he heard.
