“Ohhhhklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain!” Let that old Okie wind blow you down our street for some fab food. What’s cooking in the kitchen for you this week: fried chicken with roasted sweet potatoes, overnight brisket, chipotle salads and wraps, and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys!
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, September 8
Fried chicken tenders with roasted sweet potatoes, speckled butter beans, and a honey buttermilk biscuit. Chicken tenders lovingly bedded overnight in buttermilk and hot sauce come famously fried in a special flour recipe and served with roasted sweet potatoes and speckled butter beans — oh, and some cream gravy. Down and out? Coasting on fumes? Need a little help from your friends? Fried chicken is the answer. It’s what John, Paul, George and Ringo sang, “Do you need anybody? I just want chicken to love…I get by with a little help from my friends.” Who knew fried chicken had the power? No crazy Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band uniforms, here, though. Just good, helpful, love-from-your-friends fried chicken.
For our crispy fried chicken, why not try the fried chicken on a house salad ($12), in a bacon chicken wrap ($12), or on a sandwich ($12)!

Overnight Brisket, baked garlic cheese grits, roasted broccoli, and a buttermilk biscuit. The stuff of legends, our overnight brisket, slow-cooked in a special blend of spices and dark beer, will cheer your tummy and your table. “Come and listen to my story ’bout a man named Jed, a poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed. And then one day he was shootin’ at some food, and up through the ground came a-bubblin’ crude. Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.” Jed didn’t like oil, though, he fancied himself a cattleman. He was crazy himself about some beef. What most folks don’t know is that Jed wanted to move to Oklahoma to raise cattle and sing show tunes (“O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A, Oklahoma!”), but Jethro and Elly May had stars in their eyes, so they ended up in Beverly Hills. Granny didn’t like four-legged beef or two-legged stars, it’s why she was always so irascible. And, that Jane Hathaway drove her nuts, too.

Chipotle ranch grilled chicken and bacon salad. Add a little zest to your life late in the week: try any of our salads with our house made chipotle ranch dressing. You’re not fully ready to face the weekend unless you’re zestfully ready. Yep.
Friday, September 11
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. Few folks know old Christopher Cross was a shrimp man. Yep. That “Sailing” song, it’s really about shrimp po-boys. “Well it’s not far down to paradise, at least’s not for me, if the shrimp is right you can sail away and find tranquility. Oh the po-boy can do miracles, just you wait and see, believe me. It’s not far to never, never land….” Granny bailed on Beverly Hills and the Clampets. She hiked her skirts, put on one of those totally fashionable 1920’s bathing suits, and joined Christopher Cross on his boat aptly named “Shrimp Excess.” She’s drinking cocktails with Chris and eating shrimp po-boys, a heapin’ helping of hillbilly hospitality heaving ho across the waves. She likes those old bathing suits because she can wear her boots. And, that’s the rest of Jed’s story….
Dessert Offerings This Week
Layered carrot cake with cream cheese icing. “Carrots!” Then Anne Shirley bashed Gilbert Blythe (who was too blithe for his own good) with a chalk board over the head in Anne of Green Gables. After lots of teasing and flirting and mooning, they get married. But, she won’t make carrot cake for the love of her life. Nopey.
White chocolate bread pudding with berries. Look, this stuff is so good presidential candidates have their tours travel through Richland Parish. Apparently, this pudding helps them do well in the polls and debates. Who knew? This pudding is recharging democracy.
Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake. When the doctor told him his cholesterol was too high, old Ben Franklin replied, “Time is an scone that cures all diseases.” “Lay off the scones and wine, anyway, old man,” the doctor instructed, “and let your vices die before you.” We’re not really supposed to know that conversation, patient confidentiality and all.

Famous Food Quotes
As he breakfasted with his pupils over olives, bread, cheese, and fruit, Plato presciently remarked, “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” Thus he goaded them into voting for fools like Pericles. One wonders what Plato was thinking. Maybe the cheese was bad.
