Dear Polly: Our refuse company wishes us to remove labels and wash our cans before recycling. Removing the label is no problem, but rinsing every can by hand is too wasteful of water. That's why I put the can, with lid attached, in my dishwasher with all the other dirty dishes. And I use my fabric softener sheets more than once. Usually, they work through three drying cycles. - Linda Dear Polly: Keep a few absorbent towels or rags in your garage. After driving your car home in the rain, towel it off. The result: a rain- washed car!

Purists insist that the only way to glorify a tomato is to eat it right off the vine, biting through its sun-warmed flesh like an apple. Apparently, these sticklers for perfection have never had Burt's tomato soup. Our good friend Burt is completely oblivious to what a wonderful cook he is, or how much we look forward to the days when he gathers up all the spotted, bruised and gushing tomatoes from all of our gardens and all the farm stands in a 20-mile radius, and throws them together with a mess of onions and a bunch of basil, to gurgle and sputter and grow into what we have come to love as tomato soup.

While other chief executive officers may be shuddering at the thought of an impending recession, Campbell Soup's David Johnson is pleased to offer them a dry shoulder to cry on and a cup of soup. Johnson, a perennially flushed Australian who seems to be turning around the under-performing Camden food company, said yesterday that the soup business may be helped by a sluggish economy. "We may see some improved sales," he said, following the company's decidedly upbeat annual meeting in Cherry Hill.

The restaurant called Mary's Natural Home Cooking looks like home and smells like home. There are knick-knacks everywhere, like you'd find at a favorite aunt's house, and a fireplace mantel decorated for whatever holiday is coming up. Cinnamon and spice scents waft from the kitchen. To further the homelike feel, it's tucked away on a residential street in Roxborough. There is a Mary at Mary's. She's young and you may see her wearing a lace cap over pinned-up hair as she carries dinners from the kitchen to the dining room.

When the children dig into their lunch boxes in the school cafeteria, will they be wolfing down their favorites or trading off with a classmate for something more familiar, something sweeter, something less nutritious but more fun? You may never know. Or even want to know. But if you are bold enough to ask, you may find your youngsters choosing the tried and true. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Maybe a toned-down tuna salad, one mashed in enough mayonnaise to disguise the fish.

How do they know? Just recently, Campbell Soup Co. had a big celebration in honor of the "20 billionth" can of tomato soup shipped off to market. Last year, Disney World in Florida honored its "300 millionth visitor. " And those McDonald's Golden Arches, which still adhere to the company's tradition of reporting on hamburger sales, now proclaim "over 70 billion served. " Are we expected to believe these companies can actually pinpoint the day, the hour, the very minute when numerical history is made?

And Campbell Soup Co. executives decided to herald the event with the requisite fanfare.

Romantics may not agree with the old Spanish proverb that says, "Of soup and love, the first is the best. " However, it is a fact that soup cuts across all age boundaries and has been a mainstay since it was first created almost 8,000 years ago. It is believed that this event, which required a pot rather than a stick held over a fire, prompted the first giant step toward a more sophisticated method of food preparation. Since the introduction in 1897 of condensed tomato soup, developed from a process created by J.T. Dorrance, an employee of the Joseph Campbell Preserve Co., life has been much easier.

It's hard to believe, but it has been 10 years since Ristorante DiLullo became a major force on the region's culinary scene. Judging from a recent visit, it is just as compelling now as the day it opened. More than that, the classy Fox Chase restaurant - now called Caffe DiLullo - exults in an imaginative, ultra-contemporary decor based upon a clever use of mirrors; unchanged all these years, that decorative scheme remains as vital as ever. Clearly, DiLullo is still one of our premier restaurants.
