For Nut Wafers, I found a recipe for Almond Wafers which says you can substitute other nuts for the almonds, so I guess, go  nuts with your favorite.

Veal Soufflé, Mushroom Sauce
Baked Potatoes
*Fried Spanish Onions
Tomato Jelly Salad
Cheese Crackers
Sherry Spanish Cream

In 1914 May 12 was a Tuesday.

The soufflé is using up the leftovers from Sunday dinner.

It’s not clear to me if the cheese crackers are crackers with cheese on top, cheese baked in, or just crackers meant to be served with cheese.

I have interpreted the Sherry Spanish Cream to mean make Spanish Cream and for the vanilla or wine flavoring, use sherry.
