Veal Cutlets, Brown Gravy
Beet Greens
Riced Potatoes
*Lettuce and Pimiento Salad
Brown Bread Sandwiches
Macedoine Jelly

In 1914 May 2 was a Saturday.

Macedoine Jelly is one of those mystery recipes that I can’t find. I’m guessing that it’s bits of fruit in gelatin.

Crisp Crackers
Hashed Brown Potatoes
Beet Greens
Lima Beans in Cream
*Prune Pie
Cheese
Café Noir

In 1914 April 23 was a Thursday.

It’s another meatless meal!

I found a recipe for Cream of Lima Beans, which I am assuming is the same as Lima Beans in Cream, since that’s all there is — lima beans and cream.

Graham Sandwiches
Prune Whip, Custard Sauce

In 1914 February 27 was a Friday. Fish again!

Fried Cod and Pork Scraps are two separate items, but served together.

Graham bread is whole wheat bread. I’m guessing the Graham Sandwiches are small bread and butter sandwiches to accompany the salad, but I don’t know for sure.

I have yet to find a recipe for just Salt Codfish. Pork Scraps, also known as cracklings, are the crunchy bits of pork left over after lard has been rendered.
