Lamb Stew with Dumplings
*Cheese and Apple Salad
Brown Bread Sandwiches
Orange Jelly
Caraway Seed Cookies
Café Noir

In 1914 November 2 was a Monday.

No recipe for Lamb Stew that I can find. It might be the same recipe as Beef Stew, just with lamb. We had roast beef last night and “Remnants of roast beef are usually made into a beef stew”. It seems odd that we’d be having lamb stew instead.

Onion Purée
Lamb Chops
Baked Sweet Potatoes
Stewed Tomatoes
Cucumber Boats
Toasterettes
Vanilla Ice Cream
*Drop Cookies

In 1914 October 22 was a Thursday.

The Onion Purée looks like it’s served as a soup from its position on the menu. However, I think it’s supposed to be an accompaniment to the lamb chops, like on the July 2 menu.

No one could have known when this menu was created, but today was a most momentous day. Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Sophie, the Duchess of Hohenberg were assassinated in Sarajevo. The tragic event launched Europe into war.

Nut Wafers

In 1914 May 17 was a Sunday.

For Nut Wafers, I found a recipe for Almond Wafers which says you can substitute other nuts for the almonds, so I guess, go  nuts with your favorite.

Oyster Crackers
Casserole of Beef
Dinner Rolls
Dressed Lettuce
*Stuffed Figs
Vanilla Coupe
Lady Fingers

In 1914 April 15 was a Wednesday.

I haven’t been able to find the recipe for Vanilla Coupe. Most of the other coupe recipes are fruit served in a coupe glass with an ice or ice cream and maybe some liqueur. I’m very curious about this one.

Vegetable Soup
Crisp Crackers
*Baked Eggs
Finger Rolls
Columbia Dressed Lettuce
Coffee Jelly with Whipped Cream
Nut Cookies

In 1914 April 11 was a Saturday.

The Baked Eggs are reminiscent of Florentine Eggs, on a bed of seasoned potatoes instead of spinach. “Rice milk” is a typo for “rich milk”.

02-10
Onion Soup
Roast Spare Ribs, Brown Gravy
Apple Cups
Savory Potatoes
Turnip Cones
*Coupe Moquin
Walnut Wafers

In 1914 February 10 was a Tuesday.

Apple Cups are hollowed-out apples, but usually there’s something to put in them, like salad. There’s no indication what might be in these apple cups.

Coupe Moquin is probably named for restauranteur Henri Mouquin.
