14 Thursday, March 27, 1997 Pahrnmp Valley Gazette Fly High With Your Home Loan (NAPS)--Your mort- gage should work as hard as you do. Great Western Bank now offers a mortgage loan that pays you back with frequent flyer miles on American Airlines. It's easy with the AAdvantage * Program for Mortgages--every dollar of interest paid translates into mileage. Whether you're in the market to purchase a new home, refinance your current mortgage or borrow against your home equity, you can take advantage of the afford- able home loan packages: The Adjustable AAd- vantage Mortgage is a flexi- ble choice for first-time buy- ers who want the purchasing power of low monthly pay- ments and as little as five percent down. The Assured AAd- vantage Mortgage is a fixed- rate option for folks who pre- fer to know exactly what their interest rate and monthly payments will be. The Equity AAdvan- tage Mortgage is a revolv- ing line of credit that you can access with your Great Western VISA to consoli- date bills, make home improvements, or take that airfare-free vacation! The AAdvantage Prog- ram for Mortgages works harder for you by entitling you to an interest-earning checking account free of the regular monthly service charge.

Shell The Chopping Block by Philomena Corradeno i i Wouldn't you like to have dinner on the table without fuss, using just one pan? Here we have three such dishes. The first two, Oriental Skillet Supper and 30-minute Meatless Medley, have the help of other good convenience foods. The third, Egg Skillet Supper, needs a little more hand work, like chopping onions and shredding car- rots and zucchini. But even that doesn't need a lot of time or skill. And none of these dishes has the look or taste of a prepackaged or take-out dinner. They have all the appeal of a home- cooked meal. The Meatless Medley can be varied using a different flavor of condensed cream soup. Instead of peas, you might use frozen chopped broccoli, corn or mixed veg- etables. You can top the eggs with any mclty cheese you have in thc refrigerator. Thus you can serve the basic dish many times, using your own ideas and ingenuity.
