We are not having leftover meat from Sunday today. This seems more like a luncheon than dinner.

There are a lot of options for fruit salad in Fannie Farmer’s cook books. This one is going to be on the savory side, a salad course rather than a dessert. Following some of the existing recipes, you could arrange slices of your favorite fruits, like grapefruit, orange, banana, and/or grapes  and maybe some walnuts, on lettuce and pour over this savory dressing.

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.
