What We’re Cooking for You This Week

Monday, November 16

Special made Louisiana red beans & rice with biscuits. Old Satchmo had a favorite dish: red beans and rice. In fact, he loved them so much, he’d sign his letters to folks, “Red beans and ricely yours, Louis Armstrong.” That love probably inspired the song “Ain’t Misbehavin.'” “No one to talk with, all by myself. No one to walk with, I’m happy on the shelf babe. Ain’t misbehavin’, savin’ my love for you….” There it is, red beans and rice powered jazz tunes. Happy Monday!

Tuesday, November 17

We will be closed Tuesday, November 17 for a trip! Thanks!

Meat lasagna with fresh pasta and house-made sauces. Our lusty lasagna comes with house-made fresh pasta, house-made ricotta cheese surrounded by a delicious house-made traditional tomato sauce full of lean ground beef and seasoned sausage — all bound together with lots of mozzarella cheese. You won’t really need anything else, but the bread sure will help sopping the sauce and cheese. As he explained the virtues of the explosive gum, Jack Harmon (Emilio Esteves) told Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), “Red light, green light. Press the two ends together and…hasta lasagna, don’t get any on ya.” Well, you probably won’t need any exploding gum to blow a fish tank in aiding your escape from IMF, but you might need some mission impossible help to stay awake after lunching on a pile of pantastic pasta.

Meat loaf, smashed potatoes, and green beans almandine. Just like Beethoven’s Fifth stands as the meat and potatoes of the classical music world (who doesn’t know the famous four note flourish…”Bum, bum, bum, buuum?), our meatloaf and smashed potatoes form the foundation of Western society. Everyone thought it was things the Bible, Plato, Enlightenment thought, Newtonian physics, the pop-top beer can, the Barbie doll, Twinkies, or the fast-food hamburger, but they were wrong. It’s meatloaf and potatoes. Yep. Come get solidly founded on Thursday, you, too, can help preserve Western civilization. We need all the help we can get.

Friday, November 20

Fried green tomatoes with shrimp and house salad po-boy ($15). Take our fried green tomatoes, add some shrimp sautéed in our barbecue sauce, our house salad with house-made dressing, some remoulade sauce, and you’ve got a little more than a po-boy, you’ve got a “Whoa-boy.” As they lunched during training, Yoda told Luke Skywalker, “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship. Now, your po-boy eat, and may the fried be with you.” It happened. In a galaxy far far away. Let the fried connect you to life in a luminous, energetic way as you get ready for the weekend.

Kick Off

Dessert Offerings This Week

Lavender scones with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake or black and white scones with dark and white chocolate. As she sipped her tea one afternoon, nibbling on scones, Elizabeth Barrett Browning grew inspired: “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach, when feeling out of sight for the ends of being and ideal grace. I love thee to the level of every day’s most quiet need, by sun and candle-light….” No, it wasn’t Robert inspired these famous love lines, it was scones.

Famous Life Quotes

“All music is folk music. I ain’t never heard a horse sing a song,” Louis Armstrong philosophized over red beans and rice one evening. Satchmo was right, and they named an airport after him (just more testimony to the real power of beans).
