Roasted Hamburg Steak
Maître d’Hôtel Potatoes

I’m guessing Cucumber Boxes are like Cucumber Cups, only cut square.

I haven’t found a recipe for Cream of Rice Pudding. I’m guessing it’s a baked pudding made with cream of rice cereal, but I don’t know for sure.

Chicken Soup
Imperial Rings
Susette Potatoes
French Fried Potatoes
*Stuffed Onions
Ginger Puff
Foamy Sauce

In 1914 September 11 was a Friday. A rare fishless Friday!

Two kinds of potatoes seems excessive. And we had Susette Potatoes yesterday.

I’m disappointed that I haven’t found the recipe for Ginger Puff. I’m quite intrigued. We’ve had other puffs, like Orange, Raisin, and Blueberry Molasses, before, but they were all a bit different. Some were baked, some were steamed. I can’t really extrapolate the ginger version based on those.

Pea Soup
Croûtons
*Creamed Salt Codfish
Baked Potatoes
Buttered Beets
Tomato Salad
Rolled Sandwiches
Coffee Soufflé

In 1914 September 9 was a Wednesday.

Buttered Beets are probably just Boiled Beets tossed in melted butter, but I haven’t found a specific recipe.

Rolled Sandwiches may be Rolled Bread, the first entry in the Sandwiches and Canapés chapter. It’s thin slices of warm buttered bread, rolled and tied with ribbons.

Stewed Kidneys
Dumplings
Potato Balls
Broiled Tomatoes
Lettuce and Cucumber Salad
*Raisin Puff, Cream Sauce

In 1914 September 8 was a Tuesday.

I haven’t found a recipe for Stewed Kidneys. Fannie Farmer has this to say about cooking kidneys: Kidneys must be cooked a short time, or for several hours; they are tender after a few minutes’ cooking, but soon toughen, and need hours of cooking to again make them tender. I have to assume that since they are “stewed” these kidneys were cooked for hours.
