In 1914 June 14 was a Sunday.

This was the first menu card I shared with the Mid-Century Menu Group on Facebook, joining daily menus and recipes from Meta Given’s The Modern Family Cook Book from 1948. And from there this project was launched.

Our sixth strawberry dessert this month and I tried it out!

After testing this out, I took my own suggestion. I sliced the strawberries and soaked them in the Lenox mixture, then heaped them on toasted biscuits, and topped with decorative globs of whipped cream (unsweetened, with a hint of almond extract). A delightful variation!

M2This project is supported by my Patrons on Patreon and donations from other enthusiasts of historic cookery. With your help I can acquire the unusual ingredients and equipment and do the research needed to continue my culinary adventures. Thank you so much!
