Watch out! Superchicken has joined us at the table disguised as his alter ego Elvis Diamond — and the hits are coming! Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you at week’s end: Chicken and sausage jambalaya and a shrimptastic po-boy Friday.
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Thursday, June 23
Chicken and sausage jambalaya. Well, Cajun calling! What’s better than a delicious, hearty mix of chicken, sausage, rice, and tasty goodies? Wonder Kid wanders into Superchicken’s secret room one day only to find our squab super hero dressed, well, a little oddly. Superchicken, it seems, is a karaoke crooner, and he loves the mic, the music, the mod of singing. Yep, it’s his alter ego, Elvis Diamond, replete with big hair, side burns, and a sequined denim suit á la Elvis and Hot August Night. He sings all the great ones, “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Sweet Caroline,” “Song Sung Blue,” and “Red, Red Wine.” Of course his favorites are “Jailhouse Rock” because he likes that “jailbird sing” bit, “Houndog,” and “I Am…I Said.” When he’s feeling silly, he’ll sing, “You ain’t nothing but a sausage, frying all the time, you ain’t nothing but fat, and you ain’t no friend of mine.” Yep, the secret world of Superchicken, it’s a strange place as our little friend Wonder Kid discovered. Come join us for some jambalaya, Elvis Diamond will be singing his redone tune about jambalaya, “Love on the Rice.”

Shrimptastic Friday: 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.” Speaking of “jingle-jangle,” what most might not know about The Byrds’ tune “Mr. Tambourine Man” is that Bob Dylan wrote it. He didn’t make it into the recording studio quite fast enough to beat The Byrds’ rendition to song street. Good news, though, it’s his only number one hit song. Though he had many top albums and a few songs that made number two on the Billboard charts, he never had any number ones. Crazy. Stop by for our number one hit this Friday, and you’ll feel like you’re “Knock, knock, knockin’ on heaven’s door,” but in a really good way.

Our songwriter friend Neil Diamond famously philosophized, “Songs are life in 80 words or less.” Whoa. Think about that one all weekend.
