In 1914 April 5 was a Sunday.

I can’t find a recipe for the Cream Fingers. I’m guessing by their placement next to the salad on the menu that they are some kind of cracker.

Maple Mousse is a bit of a mystery at the moment. I can’t find it despite a reference to it being in The Fannie Farmer Cook Book (as The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book was renamed). There is a recipe for a Maple Parfait, but that’s as close as I’ve come. A mousse was a frozen dessert made with flavored and sweetened whipped cream, often stabilized with some gelatin.
