January 18, 2016 Weekly Menu

Neil Diamond and UB40 have come to town to sing about “Red, red beans” and “Dumplings, oh dumplings, oh baby.”  Don’t forget the Downton Abbey Premier Party on January 22! Have a look at what’s cooking in the kitchen for you this week: red beans and rice, cheesy chicken spaghetti, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken and dumplings, and shrimptastic Friday!

What We’re Cooking for You This Week

Monday, January 18, 2016

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. Well, once upon a time, Neil Diamond had a crazy idea for a song: “Red, Red Beans.” “Red, red beans, I’d have sworn, that with time, thoughts of you would leave my head. I was wrong, now I find, just one thing makes me forget…red, red beans.” Of course, Neil loved red beans (no ham stock, though, he really loved a kosher ox tail stock), but he realized the song just wouldn’t work; beans just couldn’t help someone get over a lost love — red wine sure could, though. Nevertheless, what gave Neil the power in a denim suit with long hair on a “Hot August Night”? Yep, you guessed it, red, red beans. They are the truly musical fruit.

Cheesy chicken spaghetti. Just three words. It ain’t easy being cheesy, but this casserole with chicken, cheese, tomatoes, and spaghetti noodles will bring the pleasing, cheesing comfort of pasta to a new level in your life. It’s like a sexy, saucy, and mature mac and cheese for big people. Watch out, it comes with an MA rating, and if you eat some, you, well….

Wednesday, January 20

Pulled pork sandwiches with apple cole slaw. Slow cooked pork, pulled to tender pieces, house made barbecue sauce, and jalapeño mayonnaise form a porkalicious sandwich that simply makes your week better by helping you slide faster over hump day. Joel Edgerton, who played the young Uncle Owen in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, rightly notes, “Pulled pork jokes never get old.” Our pulled pork is no joke. Serious. Pulled. Pork. Goodness. And, it just might save your life, but not on Tatooine.

Thursday, January 21

Chicken and herbed dumplings with house salad and house bread. These dumplings come seeded with herbs in a house-made stock and cream sauce, and there’s no elegant way to love, let alone eat, chicken and dumplings. The English reggae band UB40, and we don’t know how it happened, began to compose a song about dumplings. “Dumpling, O, dumpling O, baby, don’t you know I’m in need of thee? If you don’t believe it’s true, what have you left me to do? So long I’ve been waiting, for you to come right in. And now that we are together, please make my joy run over.” Yeah. Who sings about chicken and dumplings? And, what would some folks from Birmingham, England know about a quintessentially southern dish? Who knows? Well, like Neil, they had to change the song, but these chicken and dumplings will transport you to a place where you can’t help falling in love.

Friday, January 22 — Take Out Orders Only!

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.”

We’ll be hosting a special Friday evening on January 22, 2016 to celebrate the premier of the final season of Downton Abbey! Get your reservation for some great food and fun at the table! Click here for more information!



Dessert Offerings This Week

Lavender scones, with either lemon curd or strawberry shortcake, chocolate flan cake, and butter pecan cake. Our good friend Martha Stewart admits, “I love dessert. I can’t be guilty about it because I have to taste everything. I experiment.” Well, let’s get experimental this week. It just might make you feel slightly scientific and certainly sweet.

Famous Food Quotes

Well, our old friend Ralph Waldo Emerson admits to talking to the veggies, “The greatest delight the fields and woods minister is the suggestion of an occult relation between man and the vegetable. I am not alone and unacknowledged. They nod to me and I to them.” Well, nodding to the veggies must be oddly transcendental. Well have to try that sometime.
