What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End

Thursday, December 8

Potato and leek soup with house bread. We roast potatoes and leeks, add them to our own house-made chicken stock, and cream it to make a delicious repast for a cold Thursday in early December — just what’s needed to warm you late in the week. Did you know that potato and leek soup has a Welsh origin? But, it’s popular in other cultures, too. In Romania soup lovers call it Ciorbă de praz, and in France they sup on Soupe aux poireaux. Well, we just call it just what you need for a cold wintry day.

Friday, December 9

Shrimp étouffée served over Louisiana rice ($15). Shrimp lovingly cooked with the tasty trinity veggies, a light roux, and delectable Cajun spices in a delicious sauce served over Louisiana rice will make you boogie up and down the street. Few know the secrets of flying reindeer, but we discovered the hidden power behind their airborne prowess: shrimp étouffée. Yep. It’s true. Santa Claus even redoes those old, familiar words to get Chef Rudolph ready in the days leading to Christmas. “Then one froggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to sing, ‘Rudolph with your Cajun stuff, won’t you make étouffée?'” Of course, Hermey is the sous chef, and Santa totally has the shrimp hook-up with Yukon Cornelius, who not only mines for gold and topples Abominable Snow Monsters, but happens to be a heck of a shrimp boat captain with his canine sled team crew. Come join Chef Rudolph for a celebration of his 52nd birthday as he whips up some special North Pole shrimp étouffée this Friday.

 Tobacco Express, Southern Beverage Company, and Stone House Eats will host a wine tasting featuring a selection of red, white, and sweet wines with some cheese and crackers just for your browsing pleasure. Please come join us for a wonderful and relaxing evening of tasting at our house! Please come join us for a Wine Tasting at Our House, December 9 from 5pm-7pm.

Famous Quotes

Writing at Better Homes and Gardens, Harlan Miller notes, “Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words.”
