The daily menu

I found these menus in a 1913 issue of
Armour's Monthly Cookbook at Project Gutenberg. I was impressed by the amount of attention given to each meal. I usually only plan dinner, and definitely not in that much detail!

  1. Holy cow!! Seems like a lot of food listed for each meal. Definitely a lot more preparation and thought than I put into my meal planning.

  2. That's a lot of cooking! How did those women get anything else done? Is "Veribest" a brand name? It sure pops up a lot in these menus.

  3. I think it's a brand name. It's sure mentioned a lot in the magazine. I agree, I think my head would explode if I had to get that many things ready all at once, and I wouldn't have time for anything else!

  4. this is very interesting !
    especially for me living in switzerland !
    thank you for your blog.

  5. That is really interesting. I'm not sure I would like having to plan everything out like that, but I guess they didn't have our crazy running around to do back then. They had the time to plan menus.
