Tomato Soup
Croûtons
Savory Creamed Capon
Sweet Potato Border
Lettuce and Celery Salad
*Apple Fritters
Sabayon Sauce

In 1914 November 16 was a Monday. Sunday’s capon is served again. There’s no specific recipe, so I’m guessing we make Creamed Chicken using leftover capon.

Fish Ramequins
Horseradish Sandwiches
*Pot Beef Roast, Dumpling
Dressed Lettuce
Peach Tapioca

In 1914 November 9 was a Monday.

I don’t see a recipe for Fish Ramequins. Maybe it’s something like Creamed Fish only baked in ramekins instead of shells.

Lamb Stew with Dumplings
*Cheese and Apple Salad
Brown Bread Sandwiches
Orange Jelly
Caraway Seed Cookies
Café Noir

In 1914 November 2 was a Monday.

No recipe for Lamb Stew that I can find. It might be the same recipe as Beef Stew, just with lamb. We had roast beef last night and “Remnants of roast beef are usually made into a beef stew”. It seems odd that we’d be having lamb stew instead.

*Scrub Potatoes
Lettuce and Radish Salad
Steamed Fig Pudding, Yellow Sauce

In 1914 October 5 was a Monday.

The Salmi is made with leftovers from Sunday’s Roast Duck.

I made Scrub Potatoes! Why are they called scrub potatoes?

It’s a baked mashed potato casserole, basically.
