Coming Through the Rye (Hill, G. L., 1926) takes place in early summer. Romayne arrived home suddenly because Isabel's house party had been rescheduled for fall.
Aunt Patty came to stay with Evan for a few days. The caterer sent up a huge breakfast. Before serving, she moved the table to a sunny window and placed daffodils in a blue bowl. There was grapefruit, oatmeal, French (?) chops, fried potatoes, griddlecakes, rolls, butter and coffee. She admitted that they couldn't eat half that amount of food.
Evan wasn't completely satisfied, and planned to have buckwheat cakes, doughnuts, corn cakes, waffles and new maple syrup next time he visited home.
