Come join us this week for some wonderful specials: fried pork chops, crawfish étouffée, chicken carbonara pasta, barbecue stuffed shrimp po-boys, and salmon croquettes.
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, May 12
Fried pork chops, smashed potatoes, roasted garden-fresh vegetables, & buttermilk honey biscuits. These pork chops will slumber overnight in a special saucy boudoir of buttermilk and seasonings before being ceremoniously fried in a special flour recipe and served with smashed potatoes (i.e., baked and beaten) and flaky buttermilk honey biscuits. Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans ate this for breakfast before entertaining zillions of kids, including most of us — that’s why they lasted on TV for almost 30 years. Who knew fried pig equals long life (at least it works on TV)?
Wednesday, May 13 — Today’s Special $15
Crawfish étouffée served on fried grits. Take the trinity of Cajun cooking (bell pepper, onion, and celery), add a few fresh tomatoes, garlic, and lots of fresh parsley, and then throw in the mud bugs — it’s a zydeco dance party in the pan! Believe it or don’t, you can totally fry grits, and once you’ve had them, you’ll never want regular grits again. Fried pork yesterday plus fried grits today equals a trip to the cardiologist tomorrow (it’s a small twist on the old saw, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”).
Thursday, May 14
Chicken carbonara, house salad, and house bread. Bow tie pasta swimming in a creamy white sauce with lots of good friends — oven-roasted chicken breast, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, and green onions. Well, this meal is well-dressed enough to merit a visit from “Bond, James Bond,” and he’s wearing a dinner jacket. Sorry, we have no Bond girls today — and nothing shaken or stirred, either…well, except for your taste buds.
Friday, May 15 — Salmon & Shrimp Rodeo!
Salmon croquettes with an artichoke cream sauce and roasted fresh vegetables. Alright, what feels better than specially made patties of pan-fried salmon? Not much. And, wild caught salmon (yes, we took a trip to the northwest) prove surprisingly good for your blood. Let’s face it, after fried pork and fried grits, our cardiovascular systems need some good news. Salmon. It’s not just a paint color any more, it just might save your life.
Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boy and a house salad. Take a half-size po-boy, hollow the bread, stuff it with our own New Orleans style barbecued shrimp (prepped in loads of butter, white wine, and spices), cover it with barbecue sauce, and grab the napkins. From the bottom of the ocean, these shrimp are like George and Weazie, moving on up, to a deluxe appointment on your plate. They finally got a piece of the pie — then, they got eaten.
Dessert Offerings This Week
Summer pudding. Sweet bread layered with a mixed berry compote of fresh raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. Add some sweetened whip cream or dark rum infused whip cream, and you’ll hear Sandy Olsen and Danny Zucco singing about some “summer loving.”
Lemon delight. Light, refreshing, and so delightful you’ll be singing “Afternoon Delight” with the Starland Vocal Band and the Channel Four News team in San Diego. Just don’t tell anybody what you’ve been up to.
Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake. Queen Elizabeth called — she wants some for her birthday in June. It’s a large order, though: 54 million, or enough for everybody in England to have one. We might have them ready by the time Princess Charlotte gets married.
Chocolate chip scones. These scones will have no English tea, they ride Harleys and wear leather. Well, sort of. You can get them strawberry shortcake style or with chocolate sauce.
