Corn Soup
Crisp Crackers
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.

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.

Fruit Soup
*Moulded Salmon
Dinner Rolls
Lettuce and Peas, Mayonnaise Dressing
Frozen Chocolate with Whipped Cream

In 1914 August 14 was a Friday. Once again we have fish — fish loaf this time.

Fruit Soup and Raisin Cake remain a mystery for now.

Mock Bisque Soup
Croûtons
Baked Mackerel, Maitre d’Hotel
Potato Balls
String Beans
Cucumber Ribbons
*Roxbury Puddings with Sliced Peaches and Cream
Café Noir

In 1914 August 12 was a Wednesday.

Presumably when the mackerel is called to be dotted over with butter, one would use Maitre d’Hotel Butter.

Roxbury is one of the neighborhoods of Boston.
