Appledore Soup
Crisp Crackers
French Fried Potatoes
*Corn Toast
Buttered Asparagus
Bread and Butter Pudding, Roxbury Sauce

In 1914 June 15 was a Monday. Instead of leftovers from Sunday’s roast, because there wasn’t one, we have a meatless meal.

Appledore Soup is just potato soup with ketchup stirred into it. This is a pretty starchy meal, except for the asparagus.

Roxbury is a part of Boston. There’s also a recipe for Cambridge Sauce, which is the next city over, across the river.

In 1914 April 23 was a Thursday.

It’s another meatless meal!

I found a recipe for Cream of Lima Beans, which I am assuming is the same as Lima Beans in Cream, since that’s all there is — lima beans and cream.
