In 1914 March 17 was a Tuesday.

No corned beef and cabbage here! We do have some green foods and thematic desserts. Cream of Spinach Soup, Cucumber Ribbons, and Malaga Salad are all various shades of green. You’re also supposed to tint the lemon ice for the Irish Iceberg with leaf green. You also pour crême de menthe over it presumably the green colored version.  And serve it with Shamrock Wafers.

I don’t know how the halibut fillets are suppose to be prepared, so I leave that up to you.

The Potato Nests are supposed to be filled with something. Maybe the Kernels of Pork?

Malagas are white grapes, which, of course, means that they’re green.

I can’t find a specific recipe for Shamrock Wafers. Maybe they’re just cookies cut in shamrock shapes.

There are three different kinds of crackers served with this meal! Souffléd Crackers (with the soup) are made with common crackers, Wheat Crispies (with the salad) are a commercial brand, and toasted crackers  (with the cheese) could be almost anything.
