Veal Soufflé, Mushroom Sauce
Baked Potatoes
*Fried Spanish Onions
Tomato Jelly Salad
Cheese Crackers
Sherry Spanish Cream

In 1914 May 12 was a Tuesday.

The soufflé is using up the leftovers from Sunday dinner.

It’s not clear to me if the cheese crackers are crackers with cheese on top, cheese baked in, or just crackers meant to be served with cheese.

I have interpreted the Sherry Spanish Cream to mean make Spanish Cream and for the vanilla or wine flavoring, use sherry.

Veal Cutlets, Brown Gravy
Beet Greens
Riced Potatoes
*Lettuce and Pimiento Salad

Macedoine Jelly

Macedoine Jelly is one of those mystery recipes that I can’t find. I’m guessing that it’s bits of fruit in gelatin.

Dinner Rolls
Steamed Graham Pudding, Sherry Sauce

In 1914 April 20 was a Monday.

As is typical, we are having cold leftover meat from Sunday’s roast.

I like the pop corn garnish for the soup. It’s more fun than crackers!

Roast Stuffed Leg of Veal, Brown Gravy
Riced Potatoes
Tomato Fritters
French Fruit Salad
Wafer Crackers
Marshmallow Pudding
Devil’s Food Cake

In 1914 April 19 was a Sunday.

The French Fruit Salad is, as you might expect, a salad of fruit and nuts. What makes it French and a salad, rather than a dessert, is French dressing. I know you probably just thought of the creamy orange stuff, but at this time French dressing was a simple vinaigrette.

Wheat Wafers
Cheese

Despite being called a pudding, Montrose pudding is actually a molded, frozen dessert with a very specific garnish.
Montrose Pudding

I think the Wheat Wafers are probably Educator Wafers, a whole wheat cracker made in Boston.
