Some totally wonderful food coming your way this week: fried pork chops, Louisiana red beans and rice, seafood cannelloni, barbecue stuffed shrimp po-boys, and salmon croquettes.
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, June 2
Fried pork chops, baked pimento cheese grits, roasted broccoli, & 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 baked pimento cheese grits (our very own pimento cheese) and balanced by some roasted broccoli. “Gravy, Gravy Crocket, king of the wild frontier!” They called him “Gravy Davy” because he loved (really obsessed over) fried pork chops and gravy. Fried pork chops helped him know every tree and kill him a bear when he was only three. Yep, it was totally pork. Didn’t help him and Travis and Bowie at the Alamo, though.

Louisiana red beans & rice, cabbage, and hot water cornbread. The Louisiana red beans are grown, picked and flown to Rayville by porcine pilots on a plane called “Jumping Jack Flash.” Some Hobbits named Merry and Took helped us steal the cabbage from Farmer Maggot before they left on some fool errand with Frodo and Sam — something about saving the world from evil. And, Dorothy dropped by with Toto and a passel of flying monkeys to make the hot water cornbread. Rod Serling’s on the phone….do-de-do-do, do-de-do-do. These beans will help you find the crazy in your life.
Thursday, June 4
Fresh house-made cannelloni filled with shrimp, fresh ricotta, and spinach-baby kale pesto served on a bed of fresh tomato sauce. Fresh, fresh, and more fresh. “Holy shrimp boats, Batman! These these cannelloni are fantastically fresh! I’d wear tights just to get some of these!” “You are wearing tights, Robin….” Bam! Pow! Kaboom! Order these cannelloni, and you’ll get to have lunch with two men dressed in tights and silly masks. What else needs to be said?
Friday, June 5 — Salmon & Shrimp Woohoo!
Salmon croquettes with an artichoke cream sauce and a fresh roasted vegetable medley. “What happens when you put nutella on salmon?” “I don’t know, what happens?” “You get salmonella.” Probably shouldn’t make that joke on a food site. But, it’s still funny. “No, we ain’t got no room for nutella; for nutella we ain’t got no room.” The salmon’s great — you’ll feel like granny’s in town, and she brought her Muppet friends.
Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boy and a house salad. Take a half-size po-boy, hollow the bread to make a bread cave, 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. “Of all the shrimp joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine,” Bogey whined over his gin and tonic and Camel Regulars. Hey, if Ingrid Bergman walks into the house, buy her a shrimp po-boy, she’ll moon over you like she mooned over Bogey. Well, that is, if you’re as cool as Bogey. If not, the shrimp may help.
Dessert Offerings This Week
Outlaw brownies with either chocolate sauce, whipped cream and strawberries, or (as if we need more choices) á la mode. “Biochemically, love is just like eating large amounts of chocolate,” John Milton once observed. Yes, that John Milton. He was a famous brownie addict. He wrote Paradise Lost because he was so distraught when his chocolatier ran out of brownies.
Browned butter pecan pie. You remember the famous deli scene in When Harry Met Sally? It was the pecan pie that got her so excited, and Rob Reiner’s mom wanted a piece.
Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake. “To err is human, to repent divine; to persist devilish,” old Ben Franklin mused as he slowly worked his way through his third scone with hot tea.
Chocolate chip scones with chocolate sauce or fresh whip and strawberries. Someone once said, “Chocolate is cheaper than therapy, and you don’t need an appointment.” Hmm. The doctor is in.
