In 1914 December 25 was a Friday. It’s Christmas!

The only recipe I found for Pimiento Consommé is iced, but presumably you could served it warm too.

I haven’t found a recipe for Cauliflower, Hongroise, but maybe make the sauce for Hongroise Potatoes and serve it over the cauliflower.

Christmas cakes are baked in a golden-rod cake pan, which results in a triangular cake.Golden Rod cake panThe cakes are cut cross-wise, decorated with green frosting leaves and red candies to look like Christmas trees. The cake batter is Newport Poundcake, which is the same as New York Gingerbread with vanilla instead of ginger. It’s been a while since I went on a recipe chase like that.
