*Chicken en Casserole
Riced Potatoes
Baked Macaroni au Gratin
Lettuce and Radish Salad
Orange Jelly
Chocolate Nut Wafers

In 1914 October 1 was a Thursday.

Since au gratin means “with browned crumbs”, the regular Baked Macaroni dish counts.

The recipe I found is for Chocolate Walnut Wafer, but presumably you can use any nut you want.

Imperial Crusts
Boiled Ham
Baked Macaroni
Quick Dinner Biscuits
*Fruit Salad
Cream Sponge Cake

In 1914 July 11 was a Saturday.

The only real difference I can see between Imperial Crusts and Imperial Sticks is that the Sticks are buttered before toasting and the crusts aren’t.

Vegetable Soup
*Swedish Baked Halibut
Julienne Potatoes
Macaroni au Gratin
Radishes
Rhubarb Pie
Cream Cheese

In 1914 March 27 was a Friday. You guessed it — fish!

I haven’t found a recipe for Macaroni au Gratin. My guess is that is would be very similar to Baked Macaroni.

February 25

02-25
Clam Bisque
*French Fried Potatoes
Baked Macaroni, Tomato Sauce
Moulded Spinach, Egg Garnish
Dressed Lettuce
Cheese Croquettes
Saltines
Apple Pie
Coffee

In 1914 February 25 was a Wednesday. It’s also Ash Wednesday, which may be why it’s a meatless menu.

For a simple dish, that macaroni involves consulting a number of recipes. You’re supposed to cook it like Baked Macaroni, but with tomato sauce. The Baked Macaroni  recipe tells you to start with Macaroni with White Sauce. Going to that recipe sends you to Boiled Macaroni.
