Refrigerator, Weekly Meals

A Fridge Full of Love

We have stocked the fridge and freezer with all kinds of great food just for you! Don’t forget the salmon and shrimp rodeo for lunch today! See you at the table!

What’s Happening in the Fridge & Freezer

We’ve got lots of wonderful additions to the fridge and freezer! We’ve added cheesy chicken spaghetti, house made fresh lasagna, crawfish étouffée, chicken carbonara, creamy pesto chicken sauce, overnight brisket, pulled pork, apple slaw — and the standards of house-made pimento cheese and chicken salad. Come on by the house today to grab some great country food for your table!

Friday, May 22 — Salmon & Shrimp Woohoo!

Salmon croquettes with an artichoke cream sauce and roasted vegetable medley of broccoli, carrots, squash, and sweet peppers. Alright, what feels better than specially made patties of pan-fried salmon? Not many folks remember when the Japanese invaded Attu Island in the Aleutian chain off Alaska. This hard fought battle, leading eventually to an American victory, finds itself overshadowed by the events at another little island battle called Guadalcanal. Believe it or don’t, B-rations made the difference for these folks as they fought and froze for a forgotten piece of land — they just wish they’d had these salmon croquettes.

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 saucy spices), cover it with barbecue sauce, and grab the napkins. Well, General Douglas MacArthur returned with many brave soldiers and sailors to the Philippines to liberate all kinds of folks, but most don’t know there was a secret, but small reason: the general loved Manny’s Special Barbecue Shrimp served at a local Manila joint called Manuel’s Ang Palaka (Manuel’s “Big Frog”) with holes in the roof, rats in the kitchen, and rough waitresses. Yep. They called him “General Papito,” and, they let him smoke his pipe after dinner.

Famous Bacon Quotes

“A little bacon is a dangerous thing; drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: there shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, and drinking largely sobers us again,” Alexander Pope waxed poetically in giving orders to his kitchen staff about increasing the amount of bacon they served him.

    My dad, Eldred Scoggins, was aboard the USS Charleston in the Aleutian islands and he and his fellow sailors and marines were an integral part of taking back Attu and Kiska from the Japanese! I’ve heard many first hand stories of this historical event and they never grew old. Wish I could hear many more!! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!!

    • Hey Staci, thanks so much for sharing! I wish I learned earlier about Mr. Eldred’s service – that campaign isn’t always remembered, but it was so important to the war effort. Take care, and have a great week. Thanks!
