“Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?” Bluto Blutarsky (played by John Belushi) asked, rallying his Delta House troops to deal with “double secret probation.” We know the rest of the story: toga party. Well, it’s a little wet to go anywhere dressed in sheets, but we’ve got some great food that’ll help stem the rainy blues. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you at week’s end: Curry chicken salad, potato leek soup, and a shrimptastic po-boy Friday.
What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End
Thursday, July 28
Curry chicken salad on house salad, in a large, fresh tomato, in a wrap, or on a sandwich. A special recipe of curry chicken made with all breast meat, cashews, pistachios, some crispy veggies, and a flavorful curry seasoning can be added to our house salad, placed in a cored fresh tomato, put in a wrap, or placed on our fresh bread. Dr. Suess’ immortal The Cat in the Hat (our favorite fight the rainy day book) opens with these wonderful lines, “The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day. I sat there with Sally. We sat there, we two. And I said, ‘How I wish We had something to do!'” Do something more than “Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit!” Drop by our house for a bump that will help you jump, get rid of the grump, and not feel like a chump — you’ll feel positively plummy (whatever that is). Yes, our chicken salad can do that in our Trump-Twitter-dump and Hillary-spillary free zone. And, yes, the Cat in the Hat will be chatting and wrapping and sandwiching with Thing 1 and Thing 2 and his thingamabobbydoditcherydo.
We’ve got a wonderful potato and leek soup for you today! Have a soup and salad with our house bread for $11.00!
Friday, July 29
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.” Yep. The wildly successful and legendary movie Animal House was released this week way back in 1978. No food fights, old caddy’s dressed as a tank, or togas, here, though — just some great shrimp po-boys. “Po-boy, po-boy, po-by,” Blutarsky began chanting. “I guess we’re having a po-boy party,” Otter (played by Tim Matheson) smiled.

Our good friend Theodor Suess Geisel admits, “The problem with writing a book in verse is, to be successful, it has to sound like you knocked it off on a rainy Friday afternoon. It has to sound easy. When you can do it, it helps tremendously because it’s a thing that forces kids to read on. You have this unconsummated feeling if you stop.” We’re certainly glad he spent many a rainy Friday afternoon using pen and spoon to make us swoon with wonderful words like “ham-ikka-schnim-ikka-schnam-ikka-schnopp,”floob-boober-bab-boober-bubs,” “humpf-humpf-a-dumpfer,” “bippo-no-bungus,” and “zizzer-zazzer-zuzz.”
