In 1914 April 12 was Easter Sunday. As usual on Sunday there is an elaborate meal featuring a roast. There are also some special dishes for the holiday, like the Frozen Egg Nog in Egg Shells, and of course, the Easter Pudding.

For those expecting an Easter Ham, we have Roast Capon instead.

I am curious about the eggs on the sixth line of the menu. Here it clearly looks like there are four items: Dressed Lettuce, Cheese, Eggs, Toasterettes. However, one of the Easter Menus in What to Have for Dinner has a recipe for Cheese Eggs. Maybe it’s a spacing error on the card.
The recipe for Cheese Eggs seems to contain an error. It calls for beaten egg whites, but they’re not in the ingredient list.

The Mock Macaroons remain a mystery for now.
