Hey friends, come join us for some great food! We’ve got a great week of specials from Mrs. Clélie’s kitchen. Here’s what’s cooking for the rest of the week: Sandwich and wrap Wednesdays, chicken carbonara pasta or salmon croquettes!
What We’re Cooking for You This Week
We want to thank Scott Franklin and the Richland Parish Chamber of Commerce for hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Stone House Eats on Tuesday, June 13. We’re so thankful for the Chamber and the many folks who came to the ribbon-cutting for their wonderful support of us! We are thankful to be serving you!
If you can’t make it for lunch, let us cook supper for you! Please give us a call at 267-4457, we’ll set aside some supper for you of our lunch special for the day, and you can pick it up at the shop after lunch service.
Sandwich & Wrap Wednesday, June 14, 2017
Sandwiches and wraps Wednesdays! We’ll have all our sandwiches and wraps available for lunch on Wednesdays: chicken salad, grilled pimento cheese and bacon, garden fresh BLT, fried green tomato BLT, grilled chicken, our jalapeño bun hamburger, or our chicken bacon ranch wraps. It’s Flag Day, celebrating the Continental Congress approving a resolution in 1777 to make the Stars and Stripes the official banner of the fledging United States. The back story is Betsy Ross. Legend has it that she designed and sewed the first flag at the behest of General George Washington, but interestingly enough, historians have not been able to prove or disprove this little story. It’s still a great story.
We’ll have a special summer vegetable soup made with our own beef stock available all week!

Chicken carbonara on bow tie pasta or salmon croquettes with house salad and house bread. We have bow tie pasta swimming in a lovely and creamy white sauce with lots of fine friends — oven-roasted chicken breast, mushrooms, garden fresh veggies, and green onions. Or try the salmon croquettes with artichoke cream sauce — it’ll take you back to grandma’s house. This week in 1939, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and wife Eleanor entertained King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (whom we know as the Queen Mother), touring them around the eastern coast of the U.S. The trip took them to Roosevelt’s family “cottage,” a mansion called Hyde Park where they feasted on hot dogs and beer. Yep. While the guests ate hot dogs on paper plates, they were served on silver platters — to preserve the appropriate dignity. Interestingly enough, the King and Queen had never dined on hot dogs. King George declared his dogs to be delicious, and of course, British and American relations improved remarkably — all because FDR took the King on a picnic.
