Tune in for more adventures of Superchicken, righter of transgressions against poultry! Have a look at what’s cooking in the kitchen for you this week: red beans and rice, chicken carbonara, and chicken and sausage gumbo on Wednesday!
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Monday, November 23
Special made Louisiana red beans & rice with hot water cornbread. Our red beans come fully and deeply flavored, cooked in our own house-made smoked ham hock stock. Believe it or don’t, the pig-nosed purple frog lives in the Western Ghats on the Indian Subcontinent, and our little friend only recently received recognition (Biju & Bossuyt, 2003). Tadpoles had been identified as early at 1918, but the adult (known by the local residents) remained elusive and largely ignored until the Biju & Bossuyt study. Our purple friend spends up to 50 weeks in the mud before emerging for about two weeks during the monsoon season to mate. Good thing he had the beans today, it’ll help find a girlfriend.

Chicken carbonara, house salad, and house bread. Bow tie pasta swims in a creamy white sauce with lots of good friends — oven-roasted chicken breast, mushrooms, garden fresh veggies, and green onions. Well, Superchicken has returned! “Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single cluck. The chicken of Krypton-Carbonara is now the Poultry of Steel: Superchicken!” As the music swells, Superchicken flaps into town, looking for crimes against his squab folk. In this episode Superchicken works to defeat the dastardly dairy bovines besmearing the chicken name by encouraging folks to “Eat More Chikin.” “Too bad those besotted bovines can’t spell any better,” Superchicken thinks to himself as he works to find ways to destroy those appalling poultry apocalypse signs. “Of course,” Superchicken muses, “I could always funnel more cash into the ‘Beef: It’s What’s for Supper’ campaign…no, I think I’ll spread some lies in the media about mad cow disease, post some anonymous videos of drunken cows, and show mug shots of those cows defacing property…yes, that’s the ticket.” Then, Superchicken rolls his eyes as he thinks about how tight his schedule is: mom is expecting all her chickens to come home to roost for the Thanksgiving holidays. “Crud,” Superchicken laments, “I’ll have to see my brother Randy…ever since he starred in Rock-a-Doodle, he and his preposterously pompous pompadour have been insufferable. But, then again,” he brightens, “the luscious and chesty beauty Luciana should be home to visit her family…I hope she’s still single. Well,” Superchicken chuckles to himself, “at least our long-necked fool cousins won’t be there…they’ll be served for Thanksgiving lunch.” Tune in next time when Superchicken has a small role in an episode of the X-Files.

Gumbo and rice. We make our gumbo with a dark roux, chicken, sausage, and the trinity of bell pepper, onion, and celery. Oh, Grandpa Justin would add sauterne wine, a cup or two or three, and so do we. Grab a cup or a bowl of this homemade favorite and prime the pumps for the Thanksgiving feast tomorrow! Take care, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Famous Food Quotes
Well, somehow, our old friend Mark Twain nails it: “If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.” We’d just say, stick with the turkey.
