In all of the excitement of planning for the Big Meal, it's easy to forget that there's a houseful of people - visiting relatives, home-from-college kids, and assorted other hangers-on - expecting to be fed on the days leading up to and after the holiday. Stocking the pantry and freezer with these guests in mind can avert those last-minute scrambles to get something on the table. One of the challenges of feeding family and friends during the holiday season is knowing how to walk the line between celebratory and indulgent.

BREYER'S LOWFAT FROZEN YOGURT. Vanilla, chocolate, black cherry, strawberry, strawberry-banana, red raspberry and peach. $3.69 to $4.29 per half-gallon container. BONNIE: Breyer's frozen yogurt is a premium product, made without vegetable gums or stabilizers. Instead, Breyer's adds pectin and egg yolks to keep the yogurt smooth and free from ice crystals. Pectin is a thickener, naturally found in fruits. Since Breyer's adds just a tad of egg yolk, each half-cup serving contains only 10 milligrams of cholesterol (15 in the vanilla)

An application by a yogurt manufacturer for a special exception has been approved, allowing the storage of the product in the Huntingdon Valley Industrial Center. The Lower Moreland Zoning Hearing Board voted 2-0 Thursday to allow Colombo Inc., which is based in Massachusetts, to use 1,800 square feet of a 10,000- square-foot building for warehouse space. The remainder of the building at 1647 Republic Rd. is used by Plasti-Seal Corp. Most of the section of the building to be leased by Colombo would be refrigerated, according to Russell Mackey, a Columbo representative who attended the meeting.

Yogurt as a cholesterol fighter? Some brands of yogurt have live lactobacillus acidophilus cultures (read the label!). Current research suggests that some strains of lactobacillus acidophilus assimilate cholesterol in the digestive tract before it can be absorbed into the body. Yogurt has lots more going for it: It has the lean protein of milk and even more calcium (in fact, 38 percent more!). And its enzymes digest some of milk's lactose, so that many people who can't tolerate milk can have yogurt.

Edwin Crotty makes sense. He paves the driveways of his prison farms with prune pits from a juice factory that otherwise would spend $50,000 a year to dump them in a landfill. He uses newspapers instead of straw under the cows in the barn, then re- recycles them out on his fields, where they quickly disintegrate. And he does what he calls "double cropping" with the workers he supervises, inmates at the Skillman Dairy Farm. At the only yogurt farm in the country run by a state institution, 50 resident inmates help produce food for New Jersey's prisoners and mental health patients while they also gain valuable attitudes toward work, Crotty said during a recent tour.

Some years ago, a series of American television commercials linked yogurt with longevity. Featured were the long-living (and, presumably, yogurt-loving) citizens of the Soviet Republic of Armenia. The Armenians are believed to be among the most ancient peoples in the world. The name of the republic's capital, Erevan, is said to derive from an Armenian word meaning "it appears," which Noah supposedly shouted after he first saw land after the flood, before he landed on Mount Ararat.

Ben & Jerry's Low Fat Frozen Yogurt. Blueberry cheesecake, banana strawberry, raspberry, coffee almond fudge, Heath Bar crunch, chocolate, chocolate fudge brownie, and cherry Garcia. $2.59 per pint. Bonnie: Once Haagen-Dazs introduced its line of frozen yogurt, it was just a matter of time before rival Ben & Jerry's introduced one. Like Haagen-Dazs', each of the Ben & Jerry's yogurts (except Heath Bar) contains only natural ingredients and is quite delicious. A 4-ounce serving of Ben & Jerry's Frozen Yogurt ranges from a low of about 160 calories and 2 grams fat for the blueberry cheesecake to a high of 210 calories and 7 grams fat for the coffee almond fudge.

We like this flavorful new line of all-natural, lowfat yogurts with added omega-3 DHA and something called NutraFlora, a soluble fiber to aid digestion and enhance the absorption of calcium. Among the flavors: Cherry Black Currant, Mango Pineapple Passion Fruit, and Pomegranate Blueberry, our fave. Comfort classics These cards hold recipes from the 1950 edition of Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book , published before that name became known for packaged ingredients. So there are recipes for a flaky pie crust, fluffy meat loaf, even devil's food cake and chocolate butter icing - from scratch . Jumpin' java These new coffee sodas actually taste like coffee.

Investigators won a court order yesterday to obtain fingerprints from Thomas Lee, the 17-year-old Haddonfield youth who is comatose from eating cyanide-laced yogurt, for comparison with fingerprints found on evidence. A Superior Court judge yesterday approved the request by the Camden County Prosecutor's Office to fingerprint Lee in his hospital bed. Officials have said they are investigating suicide as one explanation for the cyanide poisoning. Dennis Wixted, first assistant Camden County prosecutor, said during a brief hearing before Judge A. Donald Bigley that Lee's fingerprints were needed so that they could be compared with those found on pieces of evidence collected during the investigation.

Two FBI agents fingerprinted a comatose Haddonfield teen-ager who is clinging to life after eating cyanide-laced yogurt two weeks ago, Camden County Prosecutor Samuel Asbell said yesterday. Asbell said fingerprints also will be taken from friends and family of Thomas Lee, 17, who is in critical condition at West Jersey Hospital-Voorhees. Rutgers University-Camden associates of Lee's father, Hsin-Yi Lee, also will be fingerprinted. The prints will be compared with those found on items seized from the Lees' Haddonfield home and the elder Lee's Rutgers laboratory.
