The Truth about Reindeer

We’ve got the skinny on reindeer — learn the truth about about our flying friends as we finish this week. Come join us, we’d love to see you at the table. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you at week’s end: Cabbage and sausage soup and pan-seared tilapia or catfish or shrimp diabolical with dirty rice, roasted broccoli, house salad, and fresh bread.

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

Thursday, December 15

Cabbage and sausage soup and house salad with house bread. This soup, made with our house-made stock, lovely cabbage, and juicy sausage is just the ticket to begin finishing the week well. “According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa’s reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We should have known… ONLY women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.” Well, there you have it, that’s what happens when reality clomps into a perfectly good understanding of Christmas. We wonder if the Department of Fish and Game gave any information about reindeer flying….

We’ll also have poblano peppers stuffed with a savory mushroom and spinach filling available!

Friday, December 16

Pan-seared tilapia or catfish or shrimp diabolical with dirty rice, roasted broccoli, house salad, and fresh bread.  ($15). Buddy the Eld shares elf eating habits, “We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup.” We wonder if he might want to add shrimp quesadillas to that list?

What’s Cooking Next Week

Come join us next week, we’ll have pulled pork tostadas, Louisiana red beans and rice, chicken tortilla soup, and shrimp and grits on Friday.

We’ll be closed for the holidays from December 26, 2016 to January 9, 2017. We’ll reopen for the new year with lunch service on January 10, 2017. We are truly thankful for all the folks who frequent our table. Thanks for giving into our lives with your time and talk, our lives are enriched because of you. We hope you have a blessed and happy holidays! 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Famous Quotes

Essayist Harlan Miller remarks, “The outdoor Christmas lights, green and red and gold and blue and twinkling, remind me that most people are that way all year round — kind, generous, friendly and with an occasional moment of ecstasy. But Christmas is the only time they dare reveal themselves.” Dare to reveal yourself this Christmas!
