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.

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.
