June 28, 2016 Weekly Menu

Sly and the Family Stone remind us, “End of the spring and here she comes back. Hi, hi, hi, hi there. Them summer days, those summer days. That’s when I had most of my fun back. High, high, high, high there. Them summer days, those summer days…hot fun in the summertime.” Apparently, we’re supposed to be having fun in all this heat. It just might be too hot to have fun. Join us at the table this week — we have AC! Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you this week: Chicken cacciatore, overnight brisket po-boys, curry chicken salad, and a shrimp pasta primavera.

What We’re Cooking for You This Week

Tuesday, June 28

Chicken cacciatore. Lightly floured chicken breast pan-fried in butter with a crushed plum tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, and fresh red peppers sauce served on a bed of creamy polenta. It’s an old dish: cacciatore means “hunter” in Italian, and it’s simply prepared with fresh ingredients, including the latest bird hunted, e.g. dove, pheasant, or if you’re particularly adventuresome, yardbird. We hunted our chickens down the bayou, lassoed them from the backs of our domesticated buffaloes, sent them to their heavenly reward in a very humane way, and have lovingly prepared them just for you. Come on by, you won’t want to miss these “hunted” chickens.

Gambino’s po-boy bread brisket sandwich ($14.50). The stuff of legends, our overnight brisket, slow-cooked in a special blend of spices and dark beer, will cheer your tummy and your table. It comes with a 6″ toasted Gambino’s po-boy bun, our overnight brisket topping our house salad, chips, pickles, and tea or water. Poet Langston Hughes muses, “Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.” Humor and an overnight brisket po-boy — just what you and the earth and the air will need this Wednesday.

Thursday, June 30

Curry chicken salad. We’re highlighting our salads this week (grilled chicken, pimento cheese, chicken salad, or salad sampler), and sharing a new recipe in our curry chicken salad. American lawyer and Secretary of the Treasury during Dwight D. Eisenhower’s administration George M. Humphrey noted, “You can’t set a hen in one morning and have chicken salad for lunch.” We think he means you can’t get in too much of a hurry. And, yes, we’d totally agree. Lingering over a great salad during the summer leaves one cool, refreshed, and rested.

Friday, July 1

Shrimp pasta primavera with angel hair pasta ($15.00). Well, take some gulf shrimp, add some some fresh veggies with a delicious sauce, and lightly sauté it with angel hair pasta, and voilá, you’ve got a great dish to help you start the weekend just little bit early. Thomas Carlyle philosophizes, “Long stormy spring-time, wet contentious April, winter chilling the lap of very May; but at length the season of summer does come.” We don’t know about about that “winter chilling lap of May” business, but we know summer, and it’s here, and hot, and here, and hot, and here, and hot, and here, and…you get the picture. Come join us and fight the heat. We’d love to see you at the table this week!

Famous Quotes

Our good friend, Merle Haggard, who recently departed this world, reminds us of the good ol’ days, “When I grew up there wasn’t air-conditioning or anything of that nature, and this old car had a wall thickness of about ten inches. So we had a little warmer house in the winter and a little cooler in the summer.” Well, there you have it. Come to think of it, no AC doesn’t sound so good ol’.
