Planning a week's worth of imaginative, nutritionally balanced breakfasts, lunches and dinners is a difficult task for any cook. But now, Farm Journal's meal & Menu Planner cookbook offers a whole year's worth of tempting menus to ease the process of meal planning. Author Elise W. Manning has selected more than 400 delicious, satisfying recipes from the files of our nation's best country cooks, and woven them into creative new luncheon and dinner menus - menus enough for every day of the year. Each menu features the abundant produce of the season, making meals more economical. You'll also find holiday menus plus 16 extra-special breakfasts and brunches to start the day off right. The great-tasting recipes for main dishes, soups, salads, vegetables and desserts that accompany each menu have been tested and approved in the Farm Journal Test Kitchens. Be sure to try Country Asparagus Pie, mouth-watering Parmesan Cheese Crescents and luscious Rainbow Parfaits. Best of all, the menus are practical, with all the ingredients of good country cooking, yet different enough to ensure variety in every meal. Who could resist a lovely springtime lunch of Jambalaya, Watercress and Endive Salad, Crusty French Bread, Blueberry Turnovers and Iced Coffee or Tea? A hearty homemade supper of Clove-Studded Bake ham, Stir-Fried Broccoli with Sesame Seeds, Scalloped Potatoes Supreme and Chocolate Meringue Pie may become a favorite winter meal. Elise W. Manning has written or edited nine Farm Journal cookbooks, including Farm Journal's Choice Chocolate Recipes and Farm journal's Complete Home Baking Book. Before serving as Food Editor of Farm Journal from 1968 to 1980, she was assistant to the late Clementine Paddleford, renowned food editor of the former New York Herald Tribune.
