It takes a lot of cooking to fill these three boys in the summer and when the weather gets hot their mother, Mrs. Harry Mial of 812 Brown St., tries to use recipes that require the least amount of preparation time near the hot stove. Scott loves to pick the biggest shrimps out of his mother's Shrimp and Rice dish. Harry Jr. (left) and Ricki (right) wonder if there will be any left after Scott's sampling when the dish finally reaches the dinner table. Chicken Loaf is another family favorite.
