Chili recipes are real winners
It's probably no surprise that kids and chili are a winning combination. In a recent contest sponsored by McCormick & Co., hundreds of middle-school students from all over the country participated in a cook-off to raise money for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
The nine top recipes for such combos as Cool Beans Chili, Spice Boys Chili and Chili Stuffed Bell Peppers are available by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to McCormick & Co., Attention: Chili Promotion, 211 Schilling Circle, Hunt Valley, Md. 21031.
The free booklet also includes safety tips for kids, such as, "Always tell an adult where you're going" and "If you baby-sit, be sure to screen the family before agreeing to baby-sit."
To market, to market
Take a break from the local grocery scene and head to York, Pa., to load up on fresh vegetables, meats, homemade breads and such treats as maple doughnuts and schnitz un knepp, a Pennsylvania Dutch apple-and-ham dish.
