I don’t know if the Cheese Crackers are cheese-flavored crackers or crackers to be served with cheese.

Continuing September’s theme, we have another tomato dish. Five so far this month.

Creole Soup
Brown Crackers
*Broiled Kidneys
Paprika Potato Cubes
Green Corn
Cream of Rice Pudding

In 1914 September 14 was a Monday.

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.

In 1914 September 12 was a Saturday. Here’s the fish I thought we would have had on Friday. I’m guessing that Creamed Halibut is the same recipe as Creamed Fish in Scallop Shells, just in a baking dish.

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.
