In 1914 November 16 was a Monday. Sunday’s capon is served again. There’s no specific recipe, so I’m guessing we make Creamed Chicken using leftover capon.

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.

Onion Purée
Lamb Chops
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Stewed Tomatoes
Cucumber Boats
Toasterettes
Vanilla Ice Cream
*Drop Cookies

In 1914 October 22 was a Thursday.

The Onion Purée looks like it’s served as a soup from its position on the menu. However, I think it’s supposed to be an accompaniment to the lamb chops, like on the July 2 menu.
