What We’re Cooking for You This Week

Guess What! Starting Monday, June 22 we’ll open for lunch! We hope you share our excitement — we’ll have the same great standards available every Monday just for you.

Tuesday, June 16

Fried pork chops, crispy polenta, okra with tomatoes, & buttermilk honey biscuits. Blissfully slumbering overnight in a special saucy boudoir of buttermilk and seasonings, these pork chops will ceremoniously swim with their special flour bathing suits in a big pot of hot grease. It’s the stuff of dreams, the greasy kind of dreams that change lives in the good way. No one gets hurt, everybody’s happy, big fluffy clouds with pleasant temps all day, LSU wins all the major NCAA sports titles, and there’s no such thing as too much grease or bad cholesterol. Have another pork chop, dreamer…”Blue skies smiling at me, nothing but blue skies, smiling at me” (Ella does the music in this dream world).

Chicken pot pie garnished with a squash fritter, salad, and fresh S.H.E. bread. Made with specially cooked chicken breast meat, a host of roasted root vegetables, and a scrumptious sauce made with our own chicken stock, S.H.E. chicken pot pie redefines mom’s old standby meal. A romantic evening at the Cleaver residence included June, high heels while cooking, a pearl necklace, a gently tossed salad, and chicken pot pie. If Ward remembered the wine, well, Wally and the Beave might have had a younger sibling. What we didn’t know behind the scenes is that Hugh Beaumont, a.k.a. “Ward Cleaver,” supplemented his work as a pastor by acting. And, believe or don’t, Ken Osmond, a.k.a. “Eddie Haskell,” becomes a decorated Los Angeles cop — wounded by gunshot three times but saved by his body armor. Chicken pot pie made TV history. Yes, it did.

Thursday, June 18

Shrimp and andouille sausage pasta primavera with house salad and S.H.E. bread. Shrimp and andouille sausage do a little saltarello dance in pasta with some happily fresh veggies. It’s a jumping folk dance from old Italy, and it totally fits this saucy dish. Ennio Morricone does the soundtrack. Hopefully, it’ll sound more like the music of The Mission or Cinema Paradiso and less like The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Eat this dish, and you’ll be transported to the old Italian countryside with beautiful musical score. Yep. Or, should we say, “Sì , mi prendere per il vecchio paese.”

Friday, June 19 — Salmon & Shrimp Rodeo!

Salmon croquettes with an artichoke cream sauce and a fresh roasted vegetable medley. Salmon have surprising mythologies. No kidding. One story tells of the Queen of Cadzow who gave her lover the ring her husband the king put on her finger at their betrothal. The king spied the ring on the lover’s finger while the lover napped in the woods; the king carefully stole it and threw it in the River Clyde. Then, he demanded the ring from his queen and imprisoned her until she could produce it. She called on St. Kentigern (a.k.a. St. Mungo) for help. He had his monk friends fish in the river. When they caught a salmon, they slit its belly, and voilá (of course, that would be in Gaelic not French) — the ring! That’s why we find the salmon in the coat of arms for the city of Glasgow. You just can’t make this stuff up. And, you can’t miss this salmon — it could spring you from jail.

Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boy and a house salad. Make a cylindrical bread cave out of a po-boy, stuff it with our own New Orleans style barbecued shrimp (prepped in gobs of butter, white wine, and saucy spices), drown it with sauce, and grab the napkins — you can’t eat this sandwich with your fingers. Miss Piggy famously observed (as only she could), “These [artichokes] are just plain annoying. After all the trouble you go to, you get about as much actual ‘food’ out of eating an artichoke as you would from licking 30 or 40 postage stamps. Have the shrimp [po-boy] instead.” Yes, she did, and Kermit loved her because she was an opinionated, but thoughtful pig.

Dessert Offerings This Week

Outlaw brownies with chocolate sauce, whipped cream, strawberries, and ice cream. The devil has stopped wearing a blue dress. Now, it’s whipped cream and strawberries with some chocolate slathered about. Watch out.

Apple pie. What’s more American than baseball and apple pie? This pie will help the Tigers win the College World Series. It’s the secret pitcher in the bull pen. And, you’ll feel better helping LSU make it from the consolation bracket to the finals after losing to the Horned Frogs of TCU. Apple pie has that kind of power. Sure does. Get your rally caps and grab a piece.

Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake. “You cannot pluck roses without fear of thorns, nor enjoy fair wife without danger of horns,” Ben Franklin wrote in Poor Richard’s Almanack after his wife Debbie whacked him for complaining about hard biscuits at supper. He limped for many days. 

Chocolate chip scones with chocolate sauce or fresh whip and strawberries. “I worship scones and danishes. If I never had another meal, I wouldn’t care as long as I could eat pastries and jelly doughnuts,” Gene Simmons gushes. Who knew scones helped Kiss “rock and roll all night and party every day”? The makeup really made a difference, too — hid all those bags and weary eyes. Donuts and makeup just might be the new beauty regimen.

Guess What! Starting Monday, June 22 we’ll open for lunch! We hope you share our excitement — we’ll have the same great standards available every Monday just for you.

Famous Kiss Bacon Quotes

“Kiss is a Fourth of July fireworks show with a backbeat and bacon,” Gene Simmons quietly explains over scones and tea.

“Life is too short to have anything but delusional notions about bacon,” Gene Simmons waxes poetically.

Of course the original lyrics to “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” actually read, “I was made for lovin’ you bacon, you were made for lovin’ me, and I can’t get enough of you bacon, can you get enough of me?” Of course, they couldn’t sing it because it would upset Gene’s Jewish mother.
