Tapioca Puree Brazillian Stew Beans Mashed Potatoes White Grape Salad Wafers Cheese Ginger Ice Cream Coffee_

_*Tapioca Puree_—­1 quart white stock, or half stock and half milk, 1/4 pint cream, 1 tablespoon melted Crisco, yolks of 3 eggs, 1 tablespoon fine sago or crushed tapioca, salt and pepper to taste.

The stock should be well flavored, otherwise it must be simmered with a little onion, carrot, celery, and herbs, and strained for use.  Bring stock to boiling point, sprinkle in sago, or tapioca, and stir and cook until it becomes transparent; then let soup cool slightly.  Mix yolks of eggs and the cream together, then the melted Crisco, and add to soup and stir till it thickens; it should have the consistency of single cream.  When a thicker soup is desired, mix teaspoon flour or cornstarch with a little milk, and add it to soup at same time as sago or tapioca.  Season to taste, and serve.

Turnip Soup Beef Stew with Dumplings Parsnips Mashed Potatoes Russian Salad Cheese Crackers *Bird’s Nest Pudding Coffee

Bird’s Nest Pudding_—­3 eggs, 3/4 cup flour, 6 tablespoons Crisco, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup blanc-mange, pinch baking powder, pistachio nuts or cocoanut, angelica and apricot jam.

Break eggs into basin, add sugar to them, and beat over saucepan of hot water until mixture is consistency of thick cream.  Melt Crisco; sieve flour and baking powder together.  Stir Crisco and flour quickly and lightly into egg mixture, turn into well-criscoed mold, and bake in a moderate oven for 15 to 20 minutes.  Turn out when done, and let the cake get cold.  Rub some apricot jam through a hair sieve, put a thin layer of this over the cake, roll it either in chopped pistachio nuts or desiccated cocoanut.  Stand on a dish.  Have ready some blanc-mange eggs, fill the center with these, and arrange round the base of the nest some pieces of angelica to represent twigs.  It is now ready to serve.  The blanc-mange eggs are made by either filling some egg-molds with blanc-mange, or by emptying out some eggs, and using the shells.  The eggs must be emptied through as small a hole as possible.  When set, the shells are broken away carefully.
