What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End
Thursday, October 15
Creamy chicken pesto sauce served on angel hair pasta. “Are you saying ‘Ni’ to that old woman?” “Yes,” replies Arthur, King of the Britons in Monty Python’s The Holy Grail. “Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land. Nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress at this period in history,” says a deeply saddened, but slightly sarcastic, Roger the Shrubber. Come grab some ease from the passing ruffians with this creamy pesto pasta — nothing like lots of cream to relieve the pestilence in a land (and help the shrubbery economy).

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 know the late James Brown was a lover of shrimp. “Get Up Offa That Thing” is his stylish, grooving homage to shrimp. “Get up offa that thing, and shake ’till you feel better! Get up offa that thing, and shake it, sing it now!” Yep, that’s what shrimp did, made him want to get up offa that thing, shake it and sing it. It’s Friday. Do a little shrimp dance with the godfather of soul.
