I found this site recently and thought others might be interested. It has a lot of 1940's era recipes which lend themselves well to victory garden applications. Enjoy!

On recipes you can also do keystrokes,  CTRL + A  to highlight ALL and do a COPY and then a PASTE in a new word processing document and SAVE-AS to save any recipes you might want.

While on the WWII site the other day I ran across this FREEBIE Cook Book!
The LINK below should take you directly to it. I eMailed it to a friend and they even found vegetarian menus on it.
And I've only scanned down through a portion of it, but, it really is loaded with menus.
What more could you ask for: it is a FREE DOWNDABLE PDF File.

EAT   WELL   ON   $ 4/DAY  -  GOOD AND CHEAP COOKBOOK  by Leanne Brown
https://books.leannebrown.com/good-and-cheap.pdf

BEWARE: IF you want to print something out of a PDF file - it could be a little complicated. There are TWO numbering systems involved. One is the page numbers of a document and the other is the page numbers displayed at the top of the printing routine. They often are NOT identical as the system will count ALL pages, title, index, etc. Try out a small recipe to begin with and make sure and note HOW your printing routine counts those pages as compared to the actual page number of the menu.

ALSO, check where the menu starts and stops. You should be able to plug those numbers in to be printed into the print routine, something like this example:   Pages   28 - 34
