338. Putting up Lunches

Those who find the putting up of lunches a part
of the daily routine may take comfort in the suggestion of one resourceful

woman. When using eggs she sees to it that only a small piece of the shell

is broken off from the end of one egg. The egg shell from which the piece

has been cut is then washed and kept as a receptacle for jelly or jam for

the noon lunch basket. The open end being protected by a piece of paper

dipped in paraffin.
