In 1914 February 24 was a Tuesday. It’s also Shrove Tuesday (aka Mardi Gras aka the last day before Lent), but I don’t see that reflected in the menu.

Timbales are deep-fried pastry shells made by dipping a heated form (a timbale iron) in batter and then in hot fat. The resultant timbale cases are filled, in this case with creamed crab and mushrooms. One can still get timbale (and rosette) irons from Nordic Ware*. (And perhaps some day I shall…)

*I have no affiliation with Nordic Ware other than being a satisfied user of their bakeware.
