What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, July 19
Fried pork chops with gravy, mashed sweet potatoes, and sautéed cabbage and kale. 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 and lovely grease, and they come served with a lovely dish of mashed sweet potatoes sided by some wonderfully healthy sautéed cabbage and kale. After Franklin D. Roosevelt’s nebulous message to 1940 convention delegates who wondered about a possible FDR third term, “[…you] are free to vote for any candidate,” the famous “voice from the sewers” boomed over the loud speakers, “Illinois wants Roosevelt!” The convention erupted into “We Want Roosevelt! We Want Roosevelt!” thanks to Thomas Garry, superintendent of Chicago’s Department of Sanitation. Of course, FDR won an unprecedented third term as president. Yep. History. Well, come have a pork chop with gravy and mashed sweet potatoes, it’s historical, and it’s been known to cure outbreaks of political madness.

Parmesan crusted chicken breast with parsley rice and fresh marinara sauce. Chicken breasts coated with a delicious parmesan crust baked into a delicious dish served and on light and delightful parsley rice with a little fresh summer tomato marinara sauce on top will help you make Wednesday a lot less humpy. Actor Patrick Stewart admitted in an interview once, “Last Wednesday, I stupidly dropped my iPhone in the bath, and my life has sort of spiraled almost out of control.” Don’t let your life spiral out of control this Wednesday, come join us for parmesan crusted chicken breast and parsley rice. It just might be able to save that precious phone you dropped in the toilet while trying to text your kids about the mess they made in the bathroom.

Pulled pork sandwiches with apple slaw on Gambino’s po-boy bread. Slow cooked pork, pulled to tender pieces, house made barbecue sauce, and jalapeño mayonnaise topped with our tart apple slaw on Gambino’s po-boy bread form a porkalicious sandwich that simply makes your week better by helping you slide faster into the weekend. Chef Anthony Bourdain opines, “To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living.” These pulled pork sandwiches totally make life worth living.
Friday, July 22
Barbecued shrimp tacos with Spanish rice, charro black beans, fresh tomato and tomatillo sauces, and jicama slaw ($15.00). Take some of our barbecued shrimp, add them to a lightly fried corn tortilla with some jicama slaw and fresh salsas, and you’ve got a launching pad for the weekend. Someone once said, “I eat tacos over another tortilla so that when stuff falls out, boom!, another taco.” Of course that someone also said, “‘Taco cat’ spelled backwards is ‘taco cat.'” These tacos will help you wahoo into the weekend, and you won’t need silly quotes from someone named “Someone.”

Writer John Steinbeck observed in The Winter of Our Discontent, “In early June the world of leaf and bad and flowers explodes, and every sunset is different.” Well, there it is, exploding greenery and surprising sunsets — sounds like a good summer.
