Fish Ramequins
Horseradish Sandwiches
*Pot Beef Roast, Dumpling
Dressed Lettuce
Peach Tapioca

In 1914 November 9 was a Monday.

I don’t see a recipe for Fish Ramequins. Maybe it’s something like Creamed Fish only baked in ramekins instead of shells.

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.

Stewed Kidneys
Dumplings
Potato Balls
Broiled Tomatoes
Lettuce and Cucumber Salad
*Raisin Puff, Cream Sauce

In 1914 September 8 was a Tuesday.

I haven’t found a recipe for Stewed Kidneys. Fannie Farmer has this to say about cooking kidneys: Kidneys must be cooked a short time, or for several hours; they are tender after a few minutes’ cooking, but soon toughen, and need hours of cooking to again make them tender. I have to assume that since they are “stewed” these kidneys were cooked for hours.

Beef Stew with *Dumplings
Dressed Lettuce, Chiffonade
Toasted Crackers
Orange Jelly
Cup Cakes

In 1914 April 18 was a Saturday.

The beef stew is made with “aitchbone”. This is a cut from the rump, clearly tough by flavorful, as Fannie recommend it for stewing, braising, and “cheap roast”.
