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.

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”.

Vanilla Coupe

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.
