Guess who got married today about 402 years ago? That’s right, Pocahontas married Virginia tobacco planter John Rolfe in Jamestown. Let’s help them have a great anniversary this week with a wonderful week of food — (obviously they won’t be joining us at the table, they’re honeymooning on Aruba)! Here’s what’s cooking for you this week: Louisiana red beans and rice, chicken enchiladas with Spanish rice, chicken carbonara pasta, and shrimp étouffée. And, order the chicken enchiladas or chicken carbonara for your family’s evening meal. Details below!
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, April 5
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. 31,420 is a huge number. That’s how many points 7’2″ basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar reached on this day way back in 1984 on an assist from Magic Johnson (Kareem’s career points total 38,387). How did Kareem get so big? How did Kareem score so many points? How did Kareem take on Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon? You already guessed it (or should I say, “gassed”?): bean power. Yep. Kareem loved our legume friends, and they literally catapulted him to NBA greatness. Come get catapulted into this week with some great red beans and rice.
Wednesday, April 6
Chicken enchiladas, Spanish rice, charro beans, and fresh-made green and red salsa. SNL’s philosophical life-hack Jack Handy noted, ““If God dwells inside us like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that’s what He’s getting.” Well, come give God some chicken enchilada goodness.
Hey, if you want chicken enchiladas or chicken carbonara for your family table, just give us a call by noon on Wednesday, and we’ll put together a whole meal for you: salad with your choice of dressing, chicken enchiladas or chicken carbonara, and plenty of house-made bread. Meals generously portioned for 4-6 people at $55. Please place your orders ready for pickup by 6:00pm on Wednesday for the enchiladas and Thursday for the chicken carbonara.
Thursday, April 7
Chicken carbonara with bow tie pasta. We have bow tie pasta swimming in a creamy white sauce with lots of fine friends — oven-roasted chicken breast, mushrooms, garden fresh veggies, and green onions. Ever in a good humor, even with the press corps, President Ronald Reagan once quipped, “Before I refuse to take your questions, I have an opening statement.” Let this chicken carbonara protect you from an unruly press mob as you head into the weekend.
Friday, April 8
Shrimptastic Friday: Shrimp étouffée with rice. Shrimp lovingly cooked with tomatoes, other tasty veggies, and delectable Cajun spices in a delicious sauce served over Louisiana rice will make you boogie up and down the street. Our old friend Bob Hope joked, “I have a wonderful make-up crew. They’re the same people restoring the Statue of Liberty.” Hey, these shrimp will totally restore you, getting you made-up and ready for the weekend. Drop by for a fantastic make-over!

In an odd take on a well-known scripture, President James A. Garfield remarked, “Man cannot live by bread alone; he must have peanut butter.” Well, we love peanut butter too, but we’d say, just add some fresh unsalted butter — that always makes bread better.
