I don’t know if the Cheese Crackers are cheese-flavored crackers or crackers to be served with cheese.

Continuing September’s theme, we have another tomato dish. Five so far this month.

Creole Soup

Paprika Potato Cubes
Green Corn
Cream of Rice Pudding

In 1914 September 14 was a Monday.

I haven’t found a recipe for Cream of Rice Pudding. I’m guessing it’s a baked pudding made with cream of rice cereal, but I don’t know for sure.

Creamed Halibut
Pimiento Ribbons
Quick Dinner Biscuits
Cucumber Boats, *Sauce Tartare
Peach Cottage Pudding, Foamy Sauce

In 1914 September 12 was a Saturday. Here’s the fish I thought we would have had on Friday. I’m guessing that Creamed Halibut is the same recipe as Creamed Fish in Scallop Shells, just in a baking dish.

Chicken Soup
Imperial Rings
Susette Potatoes
French Fried Potatoes
*Stuffed Onions
Ginger Puff
Foamy Sauce

In 1914 September 11 was a Friday. A rare fishless Friday!

Two kinds of potatoes seems excessive. And we had Susette Potatoes yesterday.

I’m disappointed that I haven’t found the recipe for Ginger Puff. I’m quite intrigued. We’ve had other puffs, like Orange, Raisin, and Blueberry Molasses, before, but they were all a bit different. Some were baked, some were steamed. I can’t really extrapolate the ginger version based on those.
