hour. Serve with sliced ham and toast.


* Margaret's X-rated melon balls I had a lettuce and tomato sandwich
Saturday with mustard instead of mayonnaise. Better than I would have
feared. But the big discovery of the week is Margaret's X-rated melon
balls. Yield: Serves 4.

* In truth, I have to report that Margaret herself thought the garlic was
too much; but I didn't.

* This recipe is not wholly unrelated to fruit curry, another godsend for
the overplump.

: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 15 minutes preparation, 30 minutes waiting.
