What We’re Cooking for You This Week

Tuesday, December 1

Fried pork chops, mama’s rice, lima beans, and a honey buttermilk biscuit. Blissfully slumbering overnight in a special saucy boudoir of buttermilk and seasonings, these pork chops will ceremoniously swim with their special flour bathing suits in a big pot of hot grease. “Did he at times use an alias that was known in certain circles as “Pork Chop?” the senate committee chair quizzed Michael Corleone as he sat dispassionately. “Pork Chop is a term that was used by his friends — one of affection, one of respect,” Mr. Corleone responded flatly. The real truth, though, comes when Kay Corleone confronts Michael in the hotel room: “What happened with Frank Patangelli?” “It was settled between the brothers, Kay,” Michael defers. “I suppose I always knew you were too greasy to let any of them ever beat you.” Suddenly, we know the real truth behind the Pork Chop legacy: they’re just too greasy to be caught. Well, you can totally catch our pork chops, and we guarantee they’ll help your testimony before any senate committee. Yep.

Wednesday, December 2

Roasted chicken with rosemary polenta, green beans, and house-made bread. Superchicken wonders about polenta: “What in the world is polenta anyway?” “Well,” Wonder Kid (Superchicken’s unusually cute goat sidekick) remarks, “it’s an old dish going back to Roman times. Before corn came to Europe in the 16th century, farro, chestnut flour, millet, spelt, and chickpeas were used to create a kind of porridge or, in an ugly word, “gruel.” The word “polenta” comes from a Latin cognate related to the word for pollen, and it describes the hulled or crushed grain. After boiling the meal, you can bake it, fry it, or grill it. It’s a useful and nutritious food.” “I see,” Superchicken says, scratching his coxcomb thoughtfully. “How do you know that kind of stuff?” “Well, my mom is a stickler for knowing the food you eat,” Wonder Kid answers. “Hmmm,” Superchicken thinks to himself, “that undermines the old adage, ‘The stomach of a goat.’ If you can eat anything you want, why learn about it? Oh well….”

Thursday, December 3

Jambalaya. Woo hoo! Cajun calling! We feel like Tina Turner, shaking it on the stage singing Proud Mary! “Big wheel keep on turning, Proud Mary keep on burning. And we’re rolling, rolling, rolling jambalaya.” Get your short skirts with spangles, and let’s get to dancing. Proud Mary is in the kitchen cooking jambalaya! Feel the music rise: “Doot-doot-doot-doot-doot, rolling on the river!”

Friday, December 4

Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys or fried green tomato and shrimp po-boys with house-made remoulade sauce. 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. Or grab 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.” Hancock County on the Mississippi coast has posted tourism signs sporting a shrimp to help folks find their ways to great coastal attractions. Of course, most folks see them and wonder, “What in the world is that shrimp sign?” Well, our shrimp sign is like the Bat signal, calling folks to grab some delicious po-boys as they head into the weekend. Heck, these sandwiches might even help you fight crime. After you take a nap, of course.

Famous Food Quotes

“I am going to church, Watson. I believe such attendance was a prominent element of the Christmas season before the giving of gifts and the consumption of certain fowl became de rigueur?” Sherlock Holmes remarked coldly and sarcastically in J. N. Williamson’s short story “The Adventure of the Man Who Never Laughed” found in Holmes for the Holidays (1996). Well, it’s elementary this season: Jesus comes before the turkey pudding.

    • Hey Inge, it’s totally a typo! Didn’t catch it. The menu for this week of Dec. 1 is right! We’re having fried green tomato shrimp po-boys along with our standard menu. Take care, and hope to see you.
