Spinach Soup *Irish Stew Baked Macaroni Onion and Lettuce Salad Cheese Puffs Golden Parfait Coffee

Irish Stew_—­1 pound middle neck mutton, 2 pounds potatoes, 4 onions, 1 tablespoon Crisco, bunch of herbs, pepper and salt, 1 tablespoon flour, 1 teaspoon chopped parsley, and cold water.

Put Crisco into saucepan with mutton which should be cut into small pieces.  Peel and quarter onions, and put them in saucepan, add herbs and barely cover with cold water.  Peel potatoes, choose small ones and do not cut them up, and lay over meat, sprinkle little salt and pepper on potatoes and bring to boil.  Then add flour and stand saucepan where it will stew gently 2 hours.  Take out herbs, season to taste with salt and pepper.  Dish up meat in circle on flat dish, put potatoes and onions in center, leaving 1 potato in saucepan, to mash and thicken the gravy a little, pour gravy over stew, and sprinkle with parsley.  Inferior cuts of mutton can be used advantageously for this dish, such as scrag-end or breast of mutton; the bones and gristle with long stewing give a nice flavor to the dish.
