Pea Soup
Croûtons
*Creamed Salt Codfish
Baked Potatoes
Buttered Beets
Tomato Salad
Rolled Sandwiches
Coffee Soufflé

In 1914 September 9 was a Wednesday.

Buttered Beets are probably just Boiled Beets tossed in melted butter, but I haven’t found a specific recipe.

Rolled Sandwiches may be Rolled Bread, the first entry in the Sandwiches and Canapés chapter. It’s thin slices of warm buttered bread, rolled and tied with ribbons.

Stewed Kidneys
Dumplings
Potato Balls
Broiled Tomatoes
Lettuce and Cucumber Salad
*Raisin Puff, Cream Sauce

In 1914 September 8 was a Tuesday.

I haven’t found a recipe for Stewed Kidneys. Fannie Farmer has this to say about cooking kidneys: Kidneys must be cooked a short time, or for several hours; they are tender after a few minutes’ cooking, but soon toughen, and need hours of cooking to again make them tender. I have to assume that since they are “stewed” these kidneys were cooked for hours.

Mushroom Soup
Chicken à la Providence
Duchess Sweet Potatoes
Creamed Cauliflower
Hindu Salad
Fromage Rolls

In 1914 September 6 was a Sunday.

There isn’t a recipe for Duchess Sweet Potatoes. I assume you make Duchess Potatoes with sweet potatoes.

Fried Cod Steaks
Mashed Potatoes
Hongroise Cauliflower
*Tomato Salad
Nut Graham Sandwiches
Macaroon Cream

In 1914 September 2 was a Wednesday.

I haven’t found a recipe for Hongroise Cauliflower. “Hongroise” is “Hungarian-style” and usually means a sauce with paprika in it. The recipe for Hongroise Potatoes has a white sauce (butter, flour, and milk) seasoned with onion juice, salt, and paprika and thickened with an egg yolk. It would probably work just as well poured over cooked cauliflower.

Cream of Pea Soup
Crisp Crackers
Cold Sliced Corned Beef
Baked Potatoes
*Devilled Tomatoes
Lyman Apples
Nut Wafers

In 1914 September 1 was a Tuesday. This menu is very similar to August 25 — same soup, meat, potatoes, and vegetable.

I’m not completely sure what she means by Lyman Apples. My best guess is apples from Lyman Orchard in Connecticut, which was established in 1741.

Tomatoes are abundant in September as there are 10 dishes featuring tomatoes this month, including recipes for 5 of them. I tried the Devilled Tomatoes, which you can see here:

The tomatoes themselves were underwhelming, but the sauce wasn’t bad.
