Item: Oscar Mayer Lunchables breakfast entreesWhat you get: 1 breakfastCost: About $2.60Preparation time: Can eat out of box, 15 to 30 seconds in microwaveReview: Oscar Mayer's popular Lunchables have branched out to include breakfast. Kids have a choice between pancakes and waffles. We tried the eight-pancake kit warmed in the microwave. The pancakes were a little sweet for my taste, but my 2 1/2-year-old gobbled them up. She passed on the "Bac'n Bites," which actually weren't too bad -- similar to coin-sized bacon bits.

Can I prepare meatloaf and freeze it without cooking? It would of course have several eggs as an ingredient. And can bacon be cooked in the microwave, as the Oscar Mayer package says? Yes, you can freeze meatloaf after preparing and shaping it. You may want to first fit some plastic cling wrap snugly into the loaf pan before putting the meat mixture in. Freeze it for about 30 minutes to an hour, pull the partially frozen loaf out and wrap it in the plastic, then in foil. If you add ketchup for a sauce, do so when you are ready to bake and serve.

Many people who are allergic to milk may suffer dangerous reactions to "non-dairy" products because some such foods actually contain milk proteins.In a recent issue of New England Journal of Medicine, doctors report on six cases of children suffering severe allergic reactions supposedly dairy-free foods, including bologna, hot dogs, tofu frozen desserts and rice-based desserts.The physicians, who are from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Mount Sinai Medical Center, analyzed the contents of foods consumed by the children, and found they contained casein and other milk proteins, even though none of the labels indicated that they did and some were labeled as non-dairy products.

It's a typical Tuesday at the Montgomery Plaza Giant supermarket -- except, of course, for the 27-foot-long hot dog parked outside.Inside the Route 40 Giant, things are a little less than ordinary, too. At least in the bakery section, where a very perky Patty "Pickle" Kan is cheerfully attempting to teach a handful of toddlers the words to a familiar song:"Oh, I wish I were an Oscar Mayer wie-ner. That is what I'd truly like to be-ee-ee. 'Cause if I were an Oscar Mayer wie-ner, everyone would be in love with me."

Improving our eating habits just isn't that easy.The pressure is on to get the job done, what with the relationship between food, overweight and most chronic diseases. And yet . . .Our lives are so busy, there's so much to do.A recent study by the American Dietetic Association showed that people think healthy eating is really important, but weren't doing all they could for three very important reasons. They thought eating well was too complicated, took too much time, and required them to give up their favorite foods.

TC "Rob," I said to my 13-year-old son, who was -- this being a school morning -- sleeping face-down in his breakfast. "How would you like it if I picked you up at school in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile?""Dad!" he said, coming violently to life, horrified. "No!"So right away I knew it was a good idea. Your most important responsibility, as the parent of an adolescent, is to be a hideous ++ embarrassment to your child. Fortunately, most of us parents have a natural flair for this.For example: I'll be driving Rob and some friends somewhere, and they'll be in the back seat, talking the way young people do, in a series of statements that sound like questions ("So Mr. Neeble?

Rather than toss out 100,000 hot dogs that couldn't be sold because they were made one-sixteenth of an inch too thin, Oscar Mayer donated the batch to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. With that decision, the giant meat processor spared itself disposal costs - and got to write off the dogs on its taxes as a charitable contribution. Such donations - from canned and packaged goods to fresh food from farms and restaurants - stand to increase sharply as a result of tax breaks being considered by Congress.

BOSTON -- It's not that I envy the corporate titans. It's just that I have a small failure of imagination.Every time I try to envision myself as Disney CEO Michael Eisner, I get stuck at the same place. There I am in front of the mirror saying to myself, "Let's see, I earned $575 million last year. Yeah, that seems about right. I'm worth that."I'm pleased that he doesn't suffer from low self-esteem, but how does he get his mind around those numbers? For that matter, go figure the worth of Sanford I. Weill, the head of Citigroup that runs those nifty ads on the Golf Channel saying, "How Money Works Now."

AT Bill Clinton's inauguration, poet Maya Angelou read an original work, "On The Pulse of Morning," greeting the dawn of a new day represented by the Clinton administration.A powerful, moving work, Ms. Angelou's poem is worthy of praise, a call to each of us to give thoughtful consideration to our contributions to tomorrow.Nonetheless, I must admit her call to a new dawn stirred poetic thoughts of another kind in the soul of this mother of three. With respect and apologies to Ms. Angelou, here is my poem, "Check My Pulse: A Morning at Our House":Here on the pulse ofthis new daykids, chaos and clamorThe wakening alarmof a new dawnThe moans that greetthe rising sunemitted by the rising sons.
