Watch out! Towanda’s in town! She’s hopped up on fried green tomatoes, and she’s righting all wrongs. Have a look at what’s cooking in the kitchen for you this week: fried chicken, brisket tacos, grilled chicken bacon ranch sandwich, and fried green tomatoes and shrimp po-boys!
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, November 3
Fried chicken tenders with smashed potatoes and a greens trio (collards, mustard, and turnip) and a honey buttermilk biscuit. Lovingly bedded overnight in buttermilk and hot sauce, our chicken tenders come fabulously fried in a special flour recipe and served with our white cream gravy signature potatoes. “I love the smell of fried chicken in the morning,” Lt. Colonel Bill Killgore mused as wandered into the kitchen where his wife was cooking. “Smells like…heavenly,” he finished philosophically. Come grab your little piece of heaven and get apocalyptically philosophical with some of our fried chicken.
Wednesday, November 4
Brisket tacos served with cilantro lime slaw, charro beans, and fresh salsa. Our overnight brisket chopped and served on lightly fried corn tortillas will help you rethink the traditional taco. How do tacos say grace? Lettuce pray. Hey, let these tacos grace your mid-week as you head to Friday.
Thursday, November 5
Grilled chicken bacon ranch sandwich ($13.50). Say that five times quickly! Take our grilled chicken sandwich with our house-made bread, add bacon, house-made ranch, and our house salad, and you have a sandwich to behold. What would happen if you genetically crossed a chicken and pig? We don’t know either, but it might solve breakfast crises all over the world.
Friday, November 6
Fried green tomatoes with shrimp and house salad po-boy ($15). Take our fried green tomatoes, add some shrimp sautéed in our barbecue sauce and our house salad with house-made dressing and you’ve got a little more than a po-boy, you’ve got a “Whoa-boy.” In the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, Evelyn (played by Kathy Bates) tells Mrs. Threadgood (played by Jessica Tandy), “I never get mad, Mrs Threadgoode. Never. The way I was raised, it was bad manners. Well, I got mad…and it felt terrific! I felt like I could beat the crap out of all those punks. Excuse my language. Just beat ’em to a pulp. Beat ’em till they begged for mercy! Towanda the avenger. And after I wipe out all the punks of this world, I’ll take on the wife-beaters, like Frank Bennett, and machine-gun their genitals! Towanda will go on the rampage. I’ll put tiny little bombs in Penthouse and Playboy so they’ll explode when you open them. And I’ll ban all fashion models who weigh less than 130 pounds. And I’ll give half the military budget to people of 65 and declare wrinkles sexually desirable. Towanda, righter of wrongs, queen beyond compare! To which Mrs. Threadgood wondered, “How many of them hormones are you taking, honey?” This sandwich may not right all wrongs, but it’s a good start.
Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake or black and white scones with dark and white chocolate. William Ewart Gladstone, prime minister of England during Queen Victoria’s reign rightly observed, ““If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, it will cool you; if you are depressed, it will cheer you; if you are excited, it will calm you.” Tea and scones — setting the world to rights one cup at a time.

Famous Food Quotes
Famous painter Gustav Klimt said, “After tea it’s back to painting — a large poplar at dusk with a gathering storm. From time to time instead of this evening painting session I go bowling in one of the neighbouring villages, but not very often.” Who knew tea and bowling had such influence on art?
