ENTREES. 



MACARONI WITH CHEESE. 

One cup macaroni broken into inch pieces and cooked in three 
pints boiling salted water twenty minutes. Turn into a colander 
and pour over it cold water; drain. 

Make a sauce of one tablespoon each butter and flour and one 
and one-half cups hot milk; salt. Put a layer of grated cheese 
in bottom of bake dish, then a layer of macaroni and one of 
sauce, and so on until dish is full. Cover with fine crumbs and 
dots of butter. Bake until brown. 



POTATO CROQUETTES. 

Two cups cold mashed potatoes free from lumps, two eggs 
beaten to a froth, one tablespoonful melted butter, salt and pep- 
per to taste. Form into croquettes, roll in beaten egg and 
cracker crumbs, and fry in hot fat. F. A. Colburn. 



SCALLOPED POTATOES AND ONIONS. 

Peel and slice six medium-sized potatoes and two medium-sized 
onions. Butter a deep dish, place in it a layer of onion and 
potatoes, sprinkle on salt and pepper and drop on bits of butter. 
Repeat the layers and turn over milk till the whole is nearly 
covered. Leila Nickerson. 

OMELETS. 

The first essential for a good omelet is an omelet pan, which 

7 



should be an ordinary-sized, flat, sheet-iron frying pan. After 
using, it should not be washed, but scoured with salt and wiped 
clean with a cloth. It is better to make several small omelets, 
of three or four eggs each, rather than one large one, for they 
are more easily handled and cook quicker, so are more apt to 
be tender. 

Break the eggs into a bowl; beat until broken only. Add to 
four eggs three tablespoonfuls of cream or four teaspoonfuls of 
warm water and one teaspoonful of butter. Put the pan over 
the fire, and when it is hot put in one teaspoonful of butter, 
tipping the pan that the butter may melt and run over it quickly. 
As soon as the butter is melted turn the eggs into the pan, shak- 
ing it gently to keep the eggs from cooking too rapidly on the 
bottom. As the lower part cooks, lift with a spatula, allowing 
the uncooked upper portion to run onto the hot pan. When the 
omelet is of a soft, creamy consistency, season with salt and 
pepper, tip the pan, slip the knife under the omelet and care- 
fully roll it to the center. Let it cook a moment longer to 
brown. Should it not brown quickly, add a little butter, letting 
it run under the omelet. Turn out on a hot dish and serve at 
once or not at all. 

PARSLEY OMELET. Add one teaspoonful of finely-chopped 
parsley just before the omelet is turned or at the same time the 
seasoning is added. 

GREEN OMELET. Mix one teaspoonful of finely-chopped 
parsley with the egg, and only slightly brown the surface of the 
omelet. 

HAM OMELET. Add two tablespoonfuls of finely-chopped 
cooked ham well spread over the surface before turning the 
omelet. 

8 



FISH. 



SCALLOPED CLAMS. 

Chop one quart of clams, and to one quart of clams use nearly 
a pound of crackers. Roll the crackers fine, stir in with the 
clams, then add pepper, salt and about one-half pound of butter 
cut in small pieces. Add a little of the clam water. Put the 
batter in a buttered dish and sprinkle the top with cracker 
crumbs and bits of butter. Pour over milk enough to moisten 
the whole and let stand till ready to bake. Bake about thirty 
minutes in a hot oven. Mrs. E. W. Matthews. 

SCALLOPED FISH. 

Put four or five pounds of fresh cod or white fish on to boil 
in salted water. When cooked drain off water and take out all 
bones and skin. Pick fish in small pieces. Put three pints of 
milk over fire to heat. Take one-half cup of flour and dissolve 
lumps in cold milk, add to hot milk and cook until it thickens. 
Season with salt, pepper, celery salt and butter. Cut up green 
celery if you have it. Let cook, and butter a baking dish, put 
in a layer of white sauce and a layer of fish and so on until 
dish is filled. Sprinkle rolled cracker crumbs on top, add bits 
of butter and brown in oven. Mrs. A. A. Knowles. 

SALMON CROQUETTES. 

One can salmon minced fine, one and one-half cups of bread 

11 



crumbs, four tablespoons of milk, piece of butter size of an egg, 
little salt, mace and cayenne pepper, two eggs. Mix all to- 
gether fine, roll in beaten egg and cracker crumbs. Fry in deep 
fat. Leila Nickerson. 

SALMON LOAF. 

One can salmon, drain, remove skin and bones, and mince fine. 

One small cup bread crumbs boiled in one small cup of milk. 
Add to this two eggs well beaten, one-half teaspoonful of salt, 
one-fourth teaspoonful of pepper. Add the minced salmon and 
steam one hour.

one tablespoonful of flour, salt to taste. Caroline R. Pulsifer.

in some water and put all in the kettle and boil moderately until 
noon. Serve as a roast. Add water to gravy, thicken if neces- 
sary. Cook with water three-fourths side of meat. Little water
