*Cheese Canapés
Finnan Haddie, Caledonian Style
Turkish Pilaf
Lettuce, Mayonnaise
Strawberry Shortcake

In 1914 May 22 was a Friday.

Finnan Haddie is cold-smoked haddock. I can get it locally, so maybe I’ll try this recipe.

Fannie Farmer has recipes for Mayonnaise Dressing, but not just Mayonnaise, although Mayonnaise is mentioned in other recipes. I’m unclear if they are two different things or she just uses the two names interchangeably.

March 5, Vegetable Dinner

03-05
Vegetable Soup
French Fried Potatoes
Escalloped Corn
Moulded Spinach, Egg Garnish
Dressed Lettuce
*Ginger Pudding, Foamy Sauce

In 1914 March 5 was a Thursday. 

Another Vegetable Dinner! I thought the first one was the only one. I wonder if we’ll get more over the course of the year. It’s also pretty similar to the menu we had a week ago  on February 25.
