OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD  Yes, that '������ is exactly what my  friend Mary said after she had  consumed; one of those Princess  Sundaes T brought home from  a local store. In fact she was  looking around to see if I had another one tucked away someplace.  I managed to produce also, some  of that delicious velvet ice cream.  It is well named for its smoothness, richness and Ji-arid flavour.  It isn't very of ten I ^o into raptures over food, but" believe ine  when I walked into the store and  beheld a new freezer containing  such a variety of ice cream treats,  I just had to have some. Those  who have tried it say it is grand.  I have found out that the Princess Sundae ���vyith a lqprer of  fresh frozen strawberries, then  ice cream, then a layer of peaches  arid another layer of ice cream,  makes a wonderful dessert. These  sundaes come in two sizes. The  smaller j,of the two makes a generous serving for two people and  the larger is ample for a family  of five. Their ice cream bricks,  come in differerit flavors, some  with mixed > fruit and others  plain. Here is something else I  found out; and that-is~that-the  empty eartoris may bcfr used as  flower pots. The small sizes will  hold an empty1 baby food can,  which should be of great advantage this time of the year. These  little cans are excellent for starting young seeds in, and will look  ��� Paae Seven  much nicer on your window sill  if placed in one of the pretty  little Princess Sundae containers.  These ice cream treats are within the range of everyone's purse  when* you consider how versatile  they really are. Take for inftance  the sundae; spread some of' this  mixture between two cookies arict  you have a nice tasty sandwich  to serve with your afternoon tea.  The icecream brick could be used  to advantage if you wished Hw  make a baked Alaska for dinner  some evening. There is ; nothing  fishy about it either, in spite  of the fact so many think sot  The fresh strawberry ice cream  pie is undoubtedly the answer to  your dessert problem at any  time. It will cut into six generous servings and may be extended to cut into eight serving^.  If using the latter number I  would suggest, first, mashed ban*  anas, then the ice cream pie.,  topped with Whipped cream. In  fact there are so many ways in  which these delicious ice cream  treats may be used, ���-1 am sure  you will all want to try them.  Even artificial arms and legs  are lacking for some children in  Europe and Asia. Your, dollans  to the Canadian Appeal for  Children will help replace arms  and legs mutilated by war.
