Way back in 1983, The Police’s mega-hit “Every Breath You Take” topped the charts this week, and it soon ranked as the greatest hit of 1983 (and the fifth bestselling hit of the decade). Our food will help you breath little easier at the end of the week. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you at week’s end: Pan-fried pork loin chop with mama’s rice and shrimp étouffée.
What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End
Thursday, August 11
Pan-fried pork loin with mama’s rice and roasted broccoli. We’ll pan-fry a lovely piece of marinated pork loin just right, add it to mama’s rice and roasted broccoli, and we’ve got a great Thursday meal. John Keats wrote these lines to his lover Fanny Brawne in the early 19th century, “I almost wish we were butterflies and liv’d but three summer days — three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.” Well, there you have it. This pan-fried pork is that kind of loverly delightful. Yep.

Shrimp étouffée with rice ($15). Shrimp lovingly cooked with the tasty trinity veggies in a light roux with lots of parsley and delectable Cajun spices in a delicious sauce served over Louisiana rice will make you boogie up and down the street. The Police’s mega-hit “Every Breath You Take” came to Sting one night in the Caribbean where he tried to escape the public scrutiny of a his newly discovered extra-marital affair with his then-wife’s best friend, Trudie (whom he eventually married). Most view the song as about desire and longing for your lover, but Sting actually wrote it with obsession and stalking in mind. For him, it was not such a happy song, and he never really understood folks who saw it as a comforting love song — it was always more sinister, more like Big Brother. Hmmm. Well, we loved the album Synchronicity and the song. We’re thinking it might better be, “Every shrimp you take, every tail you break, every bite you take, every single shrimp, I’ll be watching you….” Hey, ain’t no sinister shrimp here, just good comforting love food. Come join us at the end of the week, we’d love to see you!
Throwback to the 80’s with us for one our fav early MTV videos (we love Sting on the upright bass), “Every Breath You Take.”

Jenny Han says in The Summer I Turned Pretty, “Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.” She’s totally right about the summer being magical. Too bad it doesn’t last very long — well, except for that crazy heat thing. That’s not very magical, it’s more like melty.
