Fried chicken tenders signature potatoes, savory-sweet green beans, and biscuits. Chicken tenders bedded overnight in buttermilk and hot sauce come fried in a special flour recipe and served with signature potatoes, savory sweet green beans, and flaky honey buttermilk biscuits — good home-cooking at its best. Well, we couldn’t resist a chicken joke: ‘The farmer’s son was returning from the market with the crate of chicken’s his father had entrusted to him, when all of a sudden the box fell and broke open. Chickens scurried off in different directions, but the determined boy walked all over the neighborhood scooping up the wayward birds and returning them to the repaired crate. Hoping he had found them all, the boy reluctantly returned home, expecting the worst. “Pa, the chickens got loose,” the boy confessed sadly, “but I managed to find all twelve of them.” “Well, you did real good, son,” the farmer beamed. “You left with seven.”‘ Gather ye chickens while ye may….

Meat lasagna with fresh pasta, fresh sauces, house salad, and garlic bread. Our luscious lasagna comes with house-made fresh pasta, house-made ricotta cheese surrounded by a delicious house-made traditional tomato sauce full of lean ground beef and seasoned sausage — all bound together with lots of mozzarella cheese. You won’t really need anything else, but the bread sure will help sopping the sauce and cheese. Someone once said, “Lasagna is just spaghetti-flavored cake.” Hmm. Not sure on that one, it’s an interesting thought.

Fantastic Thursday: Shrimptastic po-boys ($15.00). Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys or fried green tomato and shrimp po-boys with house-made remoulade sauce ($15). 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.” Way back in 1953, the first televised Academy Awards graced the screen with Bob Hope hosting (he hosted a total of 18). It lasted a whopping 92 minutes. Of course, the first Academy Awards done in 1929 on the RKO Studio lot only lasted 15 minutes (the longest Academy Awards show was in 2002, a whopping and yawning 4 hours and 32 minutes). Ah, the glory days of short award shows. Come grab a po-boy, it may not be an Oscar, but you will feel like a star.

Our old friend Bob Hope joked, “When I was born, the doctor said to my mother: ‘Congratulations. You have an eight-pound ham.” He also wisely observed, “I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.” Bob, born Leslie Townes Hope in Eltham, England in 1903, made it to the venerable age of 100. Maybe laughter is the best medicine.
