Dear Heloise: Since my eldest grandbaby was little, it has been my pleasure to serve juice from junior baby-food jars as juice glasses.
What a nice memory of each grandchild. Angela and Deahna are in Ann Arbor, Mich., and we think of them each and every morning with our frugal reminder. Jessica is here in Houston with us, but we still use her junior baby-food jars in fond memory of a time when she was just so very little. Madeline Faillaci, Houston
Iced tea in a Mason jar brings back memories of my mother. Somehow when I sip some this way, the tea tastes better. Heloise
Dear Heloise: I am in charge of preparing communion for our church services and have found that after washing the glass communion cups, a quick way of drying them is to use a hair dryer.
The glasses are too small to dry with a towel and blow-drying them works great. - Shirley Brollier, Moscow, Kan.
