In 1914 April 9 was a Thursday.

There are a couple of “Allerton” recipes on these menus. An Allerton was on Mayflower and that might be the family this dishes are named after, but the most famous Allertons I found from Fannie’s time were a banking family in Chicago.

Signs of early spring — we’ve got Dandelions on the menu!
