Turkish Soup
Creole Halibut
Bread Sticks
Creamed Brussels Sprouts
*Potato and Spinach Croquettes
Dresden Sandwiches, Wine Sauce

In 1914 October 2 was a Friday. Guess what? Fish!

I’m presuming  Creole Halibut. is the same as Halibut à la Creole, which we will have in two weeks. Fannie Farmer defines “Creole” as “with tomatoes” and the has a couple of other Creole dishes, but there’s not a lot of consistency between them.

I can’t find a recipe for Creamed Brussels Sprouts, but it may just be Brussels sprouts in the ever-popular white sauce.

Toast Points
Fried Halibut
Sweet Potatoes
Cauliflower
Pineapple Soufflé

In 1914 September 25 was a Friday. Fish, of course.

It’s interesting that we’re just given Sweet Potatoes and Cauliflower, no specifics. Cook’s choice, I suppose.

There’s a recipe for a Cold Pineapple Soufflé, but not a regular one.

Chicken Soup
Imperial Rings
Susette Potatoes
French Fried Potatoes
*Stuffed Onions
Ginger Puff
Foamy Sauce

In 1914 September 11 was a Friday. A rare fishless Friday!

Two kinds of potatoes seems excessive. And we had Susette Potatoes yesterday.

I’m disappointed that I haven’t found the recipe for Ginger Puff. I’m quite intrigued. We’ve had other puffs, like Orange, Raisin, and Blueberry Molasses, before, but they were all a bit different. Some were baked, some were steamed. I can’t really extrapolate the ginger version based on those.
