Pimiento Consommé
Imperial Sticks
Chicken Fricassee, Curried
Savory Potatoes
Asparagus on Toast
*Carlton Salad
Cheese Straws
Strawberry Mousse
Lady Fingers

In 1914 June 21 was a Sunday.

I didn’t find a specific recipe for curried chicken fricassee. If I had to guess, add a little curry to the sauce.

The mousse is our 7th strawberry dessert this month

Fish Chowder
Chicken Salad
Olives
*Salad Rolls
Maple Mousse

In 1914 April 22 was a Wednesday.

This feels like a lunch menu rather than a dinner. It’s a pretty simple meal. The Chicken Salad is good for using up left-over chicken, but we haven’t had chicken on the menu in a while.

Still can’t find that Maple Mousse recipe…

Caviare Canapés
Roast Crown of Lamb
Green Peas
Potato Balls
*Ginger Ale Salad
Cream Fingers
Maple Mousse
Sponge Cake
Café Noir

In 1914 April 5 was a Sunday.

I can’t find a recipe for the Cream Fingers. I’m guessing by their placement next to the salad on the menu that they are some kind of cracker.

Maple Mousse is a bit of a mystery at the moment. I can’t find it despite a reference to it being in The Fannie Farmer Cook Book (as The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book was renamed). There is a recipe for a Maple Parfait, but that’s as close as I’ve come. A mousse was a frozen dessert made with flavored and sweetened whipped cream, often stabilized with some gelatin.
