In 1914 September 16 was a Wednesday. This menu sounds more like luncheon than dinner.

The 6th tomato dish this month.

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.

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.
