Cut leeks, if used, including about 3 inches of the green tops, into pieces. Cook leeks or onions and dill with the potatoes in the chicken stock until very tender. Press through sieve. Add butter, milk and cream. Season to taste with salt, pepper and paprika and reheat. Serve hot or cold garnished with chives or parsley. Yield: 6-8 servings.

Vegetable appetizer

Yield: 6-8 servings.

Avocado and grapefruit appetizer

Arrange on individual salad plates a long leaf of romaine. Top with alternate slices of avocado and grapefruit sections. Sprinkle with French dressing and garnish with pimiento or green pepper strips.

Tomato Bouillon

Serve in soup cups with a slice of lemon dipped in parsley in each. One teaspoon finely-diced cooked ham may be put in each cup. Yield: 6 servings.
