In 1914 March 10 was a Tuesday.
Southdown Soup is a lamb broth with green beans and rice. Southdown is a breed of sheep, so I’m presuming that’s to what the name refers.
To dress a chicken for broiling, Fannie Farmer says “Singe, wipe, and with a sharp-pointed knife, beginning at back of neck, make a cut through backbone the entire length of bird. Lay open the bird and remove contents from inside. Cut out rib bones on either side of backbone, remove from breastbone, then cut through tendons at joints.” In other words, spatchcock it. It will lay flat and cook more evenly.
