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 Cooking School, but I haven’t turned anything up yet.

It’s a fairly simple meatloaf and is much improved with the addition of onion. Also, don’t make my mistake and do serve it with a sauce.

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.

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.
