Savory Creamed Capon

In 1914 November 16 was a Monday. Sunday’s capon is served again. There’s no specific recipe, so I’m guessing we make Creamed Chicken using leftover capon.

April 12, An Easter Dinner

Frozen Egg Nog in Egg Shells
Clear Mushroom Soup
Souffléd Crackers

Roast Capon, Brown Gravy
Sweet Potato Croquettes
Moulded Spinach
Dressed Lettuce

Eggs

Mock Macaroons
Café Noir

In 1914 April 12 was Easter Sunday. As usual on Sunday there is an elaborate meal featuring a roast. There are also some special dishes for the holiday, like the Frozen Egg Nog in Egg Shells, and of course, the Easter Pudding.

For those expecting an Easter Ham, we have Roast Capon instead.

I am curious about the eggs on the sixth line of the menu. Here it clearly looks like there are four items: Dressed Lettuce, Cheese, Eggs, Toasterettes. However, one of the Easter Menus in What to Have for Dinner has a recipe for Cheese Eggs. Maybe it’s a spacing error on the card.

The Mock Macaroons remain a mystery for now.
