Brown Soup
Noodles
Pork Chops
Apple Sauce
Baked Potatoes
*Corn Southern Style
Irish Moss Blanc Mange with Sliced Bananas and Cream

In 1914 December 5 was a Saturday.

I think Brown Soup is Brown Soup Stock with Noodles in it. What to Have for Dinner has a recipe for Brown Soup with Macaroni Rings and Cheese that is just Brown Soup Stock heated up with slices of cooked macaroni added and parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.

Oh no, Irish Moss Blanc Mange is back!

In 1914 November 20 was a Friday. And once again, fish.

Today is Scratch’s birthday! Since he was the one who started this whole project, we should definitely celebrate!

However, this is not the menu I would choose for him at all. There’s no real dessert! And several of the recipes are complete mysteries. I found a recipe for Chutney Salad Dressing, but not salad. There’s one for Mock Cassava Bread (made with white bread), but not the actual bread. Maybe we have the celebratory dinner in a couple of days…

Oak Hill Sweet Potatoes are presumably Oak Hill Potatoes, made with sweet potatoes.

I believe Parfait Armour is a typo for Parfait Amour and that’s the recipe I’ve used.

Svea Wafers were some kind of commercial cracker, I think. I’m still looking for information.
