In 1914 April 6 was a Monday.

I believe that the “Boiled Beef Steak” is a typo and ought to be “Broiled”.

As it turns out, today is my father’s birthday and we also had steak with an oyster blanket on my birthday in February. Just funny how that worked out.

Vegetable Soup
*Swedish Baked Halibut
Julienne Potatoes
Macaroni au Gratin

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.
