"Here's why the 'company' are going to stay for supper

Golden Age Americanized Macaroni seconds the hostess' invitation. And inviting is the name of it whether combined with meat or other foods, or served alone - a meal in itself, with more food value than meat and bread of equal weight. There's magic in macaroni, the most quickly prepared of dishes - magic in the way it combines with every variety of meat, vegetables, fruit - it makes everything from the breakfast cereal that begins a day even to a dessert that finishes the dinner at night."
