It’s still crazy hot, but we’ve got vittles in the kitchen that’ll make your day breezy! What’s happening for you at week’s end: ratatouille on angel hair pasta, salmon croquettes, and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys — and our same great standards!
What’s for You at Week’s End
Thursday, July 16
Ratatouille with fresh tomatoes, eggplant, mushrooms, zucchini, and Italian sausage served over angel hair pasta. Why is it called “egg plant”? Well, once upon a time, the plants cultivated in Europe looked like large goose eggs, including the whitish color. Now, they look a little more aubergine (which is the name for them in England). Yep, Claree Belcher had it right when she and Ouiser Boudreaux were in the Northwestern locker room doing color commentary once upon a Steel Magnolias. The football uniforms were aubergine. She really was a color commentator, and an English gardener to boot!
Friday, July 17 — Salmon & Shrimp Ruckus!
Salmon croquettes with an artichoke cream sauce and a fresh roasted vegetable medley. Some folks talk of salmon croquettes as soul food. Well, if soul means these help you remember breezy days of old with mom in the kitchen, dad in the yard, and the kids riding bikes in the street, then, yes, salmon croquettes are soul food. They have the unique quality of taking us somewhere else in time (but not quit over the rainbow). That’s good for the soul, don’t you think?
Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boy and a house salad. “Heaven, I’m in heaven, and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak, when we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.” Irving Berlin wrote this beautiful tune for Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in the movie Top Hat. Fred, ever known as a silly trickster on set, would often sing “…when we’re out together dancing shrimp to shrimp” to get Ginger to laughing so hard she couldn’t dance. This shrimp dish will get your heart beating so you can hardly speak. Yep.
