In 1914 March 13 was a Friday. And yes, we have fish again.

Butter Thins were one of the crackers made by the Johnson Educator Food Company, a favorite of Miss Farmer. She endorses many of their products.

Nut Caramel Cake is a mystery. I can’t find it in any of the Fannie Farmer cookbooks available to me. Let me know if you know where the recipe is!

Turkey Soup
Souffléd Crackers
*Baked Rockingham Halibut
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Escalloped Tomatoes
Meringue Lemon Tartlets
Cheese Squares

In 1914 January 7 was a Wednesday.

The turkey carcass from the 4th now becomes soup.

Souffléd Crackers are made with common crackers, a large round cracker, slightly puffed, like an oyster cracker, so they could be split easily. They’re very plain and much improved by toasting, serving with cheese, or crumbling into chowder. One of the bakeries that made them (as well as hardtack and other durable crackers) is just down the road from me.
