MOTHER'S RECIPES ARE PRECIOUS

DEAR READERS: Since Sunday, May 12, will be Mother's Day, I'm planning a column made up of readers' favorites of their mother's recipes. The reason I'm mentioning this today is because of my deadlines. Please send your recipes soon.

— MELBA

DEAR MELBA: My mother, Inez Julian, will be 99 years old April 28. It would really be neat if readers want to join her celebration by sending cards to her at Memorial Heights Nursing Center, Room 46, 1305 SE Adams, Idabel, OK 74745. And, everyone is invited to attend a party for her at 2 p.m. Saturday, the day before her birthday. Hope to see you there.

DEAR MELBA: I believe readers will like this soup. It's not only good made fresh, it freezes well, too.

TIN CAN SOUP

1 onion, chopped

1 pound ground beef

2 cans (15 ounces each) ranch-style beans

2 cans (19 ounces each) minestrone soup

2 cans (10 ounces each) Rotel tomatoes

2 cans (15 ounces each) mixed vegetables

In large soup pot, brown onion and ground beef. Add remaining ingredients and cook 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly hot.

— JEAN BOOKOUT, Yukon
