Earth, Wind & Fire reprise their great hit “Boogie Wonderland” as they sing about chicken enchiladas. No kidding. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you this wonderful week: Fried pork chops and mama’s rice, chicken enchiladas with fresh salsas, grits and grillades, and broiled catfish tacos.
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Tuesday, October 11
Fried pork chops, mama’s rice, and roasted broccoli. 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 mama’s rice sided by some lovely roasted broccoli. Orson Welles, taking a note from John F. Kennedy, humorously observed, “Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.” Well, in today’s political climate, that’s probably the safer question. We’ve got some good, old-fashioned home cooking that will answer Mr. Welles well.

Chicken enchiladas, fresh salsas, and rice with black beans. We take flavorful roasted chicken, rolled in lightly fried corn tortillas, and add our very own deeply delicious house-made enchilada sauce to make a great dish. Forty years ago an academically trained, multi-instrumentalist stunned the disco scene with a wonderfully redone rendition of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Yep. The seventies folks already know we’re highlighting Walter Murphy’s “A Fifth Of Beethoven” released in 1976, and it rocketed to the top of the charts much to everyone’s surprise. It even made the soundtrack of that iconic seventies disco show Saturday Night Fever. Well, our chicken enchiladas will have you dancing the disco slide with the hustle, the bump, and the bus stop (although we wonder why a dance move would be named “bus stop”). Hey, Walter will be here with Tony, Stephanie, Bobby C., Double J, and Annette. Earth, Wind & Fire will reprise their great hit, “Let’s dance, chicken enchilada….let’s dance, chicken enchilada.” Yep. Wednesdays. Off the disco chain.
Here’s Walter Murphy with a bunch of folks playing “A Fifth of Beethoven” on, you guessed it, “The Midnight Special.”
If you can’t make it for lunch on Wednesday, just give us a call at 267-4457, we’ll set aside some supper for you including chicken enchiladas, fresh salsas, and rice with black beans.
Thursday, October 13
Grist and grillades. Our lovingly cooked pork loin medallions rest atop baked garlic cheese grits covered with a sumptuous tomato gravy. Organic farmer and essayist Joel Salatin notes, “The pig is not just pork chops and bacon and ham to us. The pig is a co-laborer in this great land-healing ministry.” Right on, brother. Let our grits and grillades co-labor with you to finish the week in spectacular fashion, and pork with lovingly cooked grits might just heal us.
Friday, October 14
Broiled catfish tacos, fresh salsas, and lime cilantro slaw. Take some specially seasoned and broiled catfish, add them to a lightly fried corn tortilla with some lime cilantro slaw, fresh salsas, and charro beans, and you’ve got a rocket launcher for the weekend. Our old friend and composer Ludwig van Beethoven once noted, “Only the pure in heart can make a good tacos.” Well, that’s not really what he said. He said, “Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.” Tacos fit fairly well in that, though, especially ones with fresh salsas. Of course, he also said, “Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.” Okay, that’s probably too deep for Friday.

Our funny fried Grouch Marx rightly observed, “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.” Hmmm.
