Veal Tomato Bisque

Broiled Swordfish, *Cucumber Sauce
French Fried Potatoes
String Beans
Pineapple Coupe

In 1914 July 10 was a Friday. Of course, we have fish!

Yesterday we had Veal Steaks with Tomato Sauce; today Veal Tomato Bisque. It’s possible that the veal stock was made with the bones of yesterday’s meat.

Lamb Chops, *Onion Puree
Potatoes au Gratin
String Beans
Moulded Spinach Salad
Currant Tartlets

In 1914 July 2 was a Thursday.

It’s not specified how the Lamb Chops are cooked. They could be broiled or pan-broiled or breaded, amongst other options.

I’m curious about that Moulded Spinach Salad, but the recipe has been proving elusive.

For Currant Tartlets, I figure you make Currant Pie on a smaller scale.
