A small boy who wanted to make a good impression once took his little sweetheart to an ice cream parlor.
After he had vainly searched the list of edibles for something within his means, he whispered to the waiter,
“Say, Mister, what you got that looks tony an’ tastes nice for nineteen cents?”
This is precisely the predicament in which many thousand people are today. Like the boy, they have
skinny purses, voracious appetites and mighty yearnings to make the best possible impression within their
means. Perhaps having been “invited out,” they learn by actual demonstration that the herbs are culinary
magicians which convert cheap cuts and “scraps” into toothsome dainties. They are thus aroused to the fact
that by using herbs they can afford to play host and hostess to a larger number of hungry and envious friends
than ever before.
