Scalloped Potatoes and Eggs is a bit of a mystery. There is a recipe for Escalloped Potatoes (“escalloped” and “scalloped” seem to have to used interchangeably), but I have no idea how the eggs were used.

Appledore Soup

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.
