*Baked Haddock, Oyster Stuffing
French Fried Potatoes
Stewed Tomatoes
Dressed Lettuce with Cheese and Nut Balls
Coffee Jelly

In 1914 December 2 was a Wednesday.

I didn’t find a specific recipe for Cheese and Nut Balls, but I’m guessing they’re just balls of cream cheese rolled in crushed nuts.

Scalloped Potatoes and Eggs is a bit of a mystery. There is a recipe for Escalloped Potatoes (“escalloped” and “scalloped” seem to have to used interchangeably), but I have no idea how the eggs were used.

Onion Purée
Lamb Chops

Stewed Tomatoes
Cucumber Boats
Toasterettes
Vanilla Ice Cream

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.
