It's even better when you can prepare most of the casserole a day ahead of time, at least that's what Katie Stennes, Sidney, thinks when she's preparing this fine feast. "I just like this recipe because you can put all the ingredients together the day before and toss it into the oven the next day," Stennes said. "All you have to do before baking is add cheese to the top and throw it in to bake." This is how the Pizza Hot Dish is pre- pared: Ingredients: 4 cups potatoes 1 pound hamburger I green pepper I teaspoon oregano 1 can nacho cheese soup 1 8 ounce can tomato sauce 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon sugar 6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese Parmesan cheese Chopped onion, as desired Instructions: Cut the potatoes in bottom of 9xl3- inch pan. Brown hamburger, green pepper and onion. Add oregano and soup. Spoon over potatoes. In bowl, mix tomato sauce, pepper, salt and sugar. Pour over hamburger and pota- toes. Bake 45 minutes or until potatoes are done at 350 degrees with pan uncovered. Cover with both cheeses. Bake 15 minutes more or until cheese melts.

Do not saturate the carpet or the backing will rot. • To remove soot stains from carpets, cover the affected area lightly with salt, dry starch or bran. Leave for a short time, and then brush with a clean brash. • Slight burn marks on carpets caused by sparks can be removed by rubbing vigorously with the cut surface of a raw onion or potato. • Discarded nylon tights are good for cleaning nylon-based stair carpets. Dampen the tights in warm water and wipe the stair carpet. The New Year usually has us examining our eating habits, at least for a short while. With so much information out, 1 hear people more and more getting frustrated and giving up entire- ly. The American Institute for Cancer Research (AIR) pub- lished an excellent article enti- tled "Fat and Fiction." What is the bottom line on what types of fat we should be consuming? The following contains pieces of that article. A moderate amount of fat helps our body function proper- ly and helps us to feel full and satisfied. A feeling that prevents us from eating more food and more calories. after you've scrubbed for • To restore and brighten car- hours.

Rub the mixture onto the floor and pol- ish with a warmed soft cloth. • Mix equal parts linseed oil and turpentine to polish tiles. This will prevent the glaze from crazing and give a good sheen. • Use an hairpick to tidy unruly fringes on rugs. • When rug-making, paint the knots with boiled starch to tighten them, before applying the backing. change the types of fat we are consum- ing by making a shift from less saturated fats to more monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats in the diet." - Judy Johnson I I r II The three major categories of fats or fatty acids are saturate, monounsaturated and polyun- saturated. There are also trans- fatty acids, which food manu- facturers create by saturating vegetable oils in a process called hydrogenation. Trans- fatty acids (also called trans- fats) - found in shortening as well as commercially prepared baked goods and deep-fried foods -- behave like saturated fat in the'body. "~ Saturated fats come mostly from animal foods: meat, whole-fat dairy products and tropical oils like coconut, palm and palm kernel. For good health, these are the kinds of foods you should limit in your diet. Why'? There is evidence that a diet high in saturated fat possibly increases the risk of several cancers, including lung, colon, rectal, breast, endometri- al and prostate. Heart disease risk is also heightened. Even though Americans are eating too much total fat, it is advised to change the types of fat we are consuming by mak- ing a shift from less saturated fals t(,~ more monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats in the diet. If we take it a step further, researchers have discovered that good nutrition may also depend upon a healthy ration between two types of polyun- saturated fats known as linolenic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) and alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid). In healthy populations the ration of omega-6 to omega-3 fat was from 5:1 to 10:1. In the Ameri- can diet this ratio is 20:1. Con- suming as little as two to three 3-ounce servings per week of fatty fish can have significant health benefits. The bottom line of "fat is bad" mentality is not accurate. Even though saturated and trans-fats have harmful effects, monoun- saturated and polyunsaturated (particularly omega-3 fats) play an important role in disease pre- vention and overall good health. Consume fat in moderation and emphasize healthy fats over unhealthy fats. You can improve your ratio of omega-6 and omega-3 by eating fewer omega-6 fatty acids such as corn, safflower, sunflower and cottonseed oils. Cut down ua . Judy Johnson on saturated fats, which are in fatty meats, eggs and full-fat dairy products and trans-fats which are in stick margarine, shortening, pastries, and com- mercially prepared French fries. Eat more of omega-3 fatty acids such as fatty fish, which includes salmon, albacore tuna. trout, herring and mackerel. Canola oil, flaxseed and wal- nuts should also be included. Increase monounsaturated fats which are olive oil. avocado, canola oil, nuts and nut oils. Please note however, that there are special safflower and sunflower oils on the market that are high oleic (monounsat- urated) varieties. One being produced, processed and sold locally is Montola safflower oil. These new oils could also help with the omega ratio. Yes, it can get complicated, but make efforts to lower your total fat consumption and try replacing saturated fats in your diet with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated. If you want to take it a step further, look at your intakes of omega-3 and omega-6. If you would like more information contact the Extension Office at 433-! 206.
