I don’t know if the Cheese Crackers are cheese-flavored crackers or crackers to be served with cheese.

Continuing September’s theme, we have another tomato dish. Five so far this month.

Mushroom Soup
Chicken à la Providence
Duchess Sweet Potatoes
Creamed Cauliflower

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.

September 2

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.

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.

Fannie Farmer has a recipe for Breaded Mutton Chops. I figure that for lamb, just cook them a little less.
