“Lasagna, lasagna, lasagna, how I love thee lasagna! How sweet a name for such beautiful food!” Fresh pasta veggie lasagna served today, and don’t forget the beguiling shrimp and salmon dance tomorrow! Hope to see you soon!
What We’re Cooking for You
Guess What! We open on Mondays for lunch!
Thursday, June 25
Lasagna, house salad, & garlic bread. S.H.E. vegetarian lasagna comes with house made noodles and house made ricotta cheese with spinach pesto swimming in a béchamel sauce with lots of fresh veggies like tomatoes, zucchini, and broccoli, with a few mushroom lifeguards. Lasagna is the pasta lovers ice cream sandwich, just layers of saucy love. Barry White sang about this kind of love, “I can’t get enough of your love, baby! Hey lasagna, I don’t know why, I don’t know why, I can’t get enough of your love, baby.”
Friday, June 26 — Salmon & Shrimp Dance!
Salmon croquettes with an artichoke cream sauce and a fresh roasted vegetable medley. In Dumb and Dumber, Lloyd explained to Harry that he wanted “Some place warm, a place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I’m talking about a little place called Rayville.” Who knew the salmon of Richland Parish Capistrano was the stuff of movie fame?
Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boy and a house salad. We make a special 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 the bread in the barbecue sauce. Grab the napkins, dear friends, you can’t eat this sandwich with your fingers. “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your shrimps,” Marc Anthony begged as he gathered food for his good friend Julius Caesar’s wake. He also made some caesar salad, but it’s not what you might think.
Dessert Offerings This Week
Chocolate cake with butter cream icing. Dave Barry famously recognized, “Your hand and your mouth agreed many years ago that, as far as chocolate is concerned, there is no need to involve your brain.” That is to say, “Don’t think, just eat chocolate.” As a life philosophy, it works.
Mixed fruit pastry tart. Robert Louis Stevenson sang, “The friendly cow, all red and white, I love with all my heart; she gives me cream with all her might, to eat with apple-tart.” Well, truth is stranger than fiction. A fruit tart helped him write Robinson Crusoe. Yep.
Apple pie. Yogi Berra once joked, “Cut my pie into four pieces, I don’t think I could eat eight.” He eight the four pie anyway, and then he played and coached in 21 World Series. Apple pie has the power.
Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake. “A scone in need is a friend indeed!” Famished after all his work with the Continental Congress, Benjamin Franklin ran (in a hobbling sort of way) giggling through the streets for beer and scones. Afterwards, he helped Tom write the Declaration of Sconedepence. That’s Tom Smithwick, barman bard of Tun Tavern, a watering hole where so many delegates met when they weren’t arguing about what to do with the bothersome British or how to start a nation.
July 4 is just around the corner, so please check What’s in the Fridge & Freezer for your special weekend.
We will be closed on Friday, July 3, so no salmon and shrimp for that day. Join us on Monday, July 5 for some wonderful red beans & rice and our standard salads and sandwiches.

Famous Food Quotes
“Let the stoics say what they please, we do not eat for the good of living, but because the meat is savory and the appetite is keen,” Ralph Waldo Emerson philosophized over a huge piece of filet mignon wrapped in bacon served with roasted potatoes, wild onions (he was a transcendentalist), butter beans, and biscuits. Apparently Mrs. Emerson knew the old adage: “The way to a man’s heart is through his belly.”
