Chicken Soup
*Miss Daniel’s Meat Loaf
Creamed Potatoes
Asparagus Hollandaise
Apple Pie
Cheese Squares
Café Noir

In 1914 May 7 was a Thursday.

I made Miss Daniel’s Meat Loaf! Who was Miss Daniel? I have no idea. I assume she was someone associated with the Boston Cooing School, but I haven’t turned anything up yet.
[There will be a video here soon!]
It’s a fairly simple meatloaf and is much improved with the addition of onion.

April 23

04-23Onion Soup
Crisp Crackers
Hashed Brown Potatoes
Beet Greens
Lima Beans in Cream
*Prune Pie
Cheese
Café Noir

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.

Mock Bisque Soup
Croûtons
*Finnan Haddie, Caledonian Style
Dinner Rolls
Dressed Lettuce, Chiffonade

In 1914 April 1 was a Wednesday. The only April fooling I see on this menu is the Mock Bisque Soup. Probably a coincidence.

Vegetable Soup
*Swedish Baked Halibut
Julienne Potatoes
Macaroni au Gratin
Radishes
Rhubarb Pie
Cream Cheese

In 1914 March 27 was a Friday. You guessed it — fish!

I haven’t found a recipe for Macaroni au Gratin. My guess is that is would be very similar to Baked Macaroni.

Clam Bisque
*French Fried Potatoes
Baked Macaroni, Tomato Sauce
Moulded Spinach, Egg Garnish
Dressed Lettuce
Cheese Croquettes
Saltines
Apple Pie
Coffee

In 1914 February 25 was a Wednesday. It’s also Ash Wednesday, which may be why it’s a meatless menu.

For a simple dish, that macaroni involves consulting a number of recipes. You’re supposed to cook it like Baked Macaroni, but with tomato sauce. The Baked Macaroni  recipe tells you to start with Macaroni with White Sauce. Going to that recipe sends you to Boiled Macaroni.

It’s my birthday! As a special treat for you all, I cooked today’s featured recipe, Frangipan Cream Pie.

It’s three layers of pie crust with a custardy filling in between.
