Hey friends, we’re preparing some wonderful food just for you, and remembering the first tournament of Wimbledon! We’ve got a great week of specials from Mrs. Clélie’s kitchen. Here’s what’s cooking for you this week: Louisiana red beans and rice, sandwich and wrap Wednesdays, and white lasagna with fresh pasta! We’ll have a special shrimp and cucumber salad and ice cream sandwiches available this week!

Louisiana red beans & rice with hot water cornbread. Our red beans come fully and deeply flavored, cooked in our own house-made smoked ham hock stock that will totally set the week in motion. Red beans and rice is an old Creole dish, originally created using the pork bones from Sunday’s family dinner to develop this characteristic Louisiana dish for supper on Monday. The beans and bones could simmer during the day while all the clothes scrubbing was done on washboards. Well, it’s not Monday, but these beans are ready to help you face the week, even all the laundry you put off over the weekend.
We’ll have a special cucumber shrimp salad served on a fresh tomato available all week!
Sandwich & Wrap Wednesday, July 12, 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. This recording is found on an Australian tax help line: “If you understand English, press 1. If you do not understand English, press 2.” Yep. We think sandwich translates into any language as “good,” so come join us for some wonderful sandwiches on our house-made bread.

White lasagna with an artichoke and spinach béchamel sauce with chicken and a puttanesca red sauce as the bottom layer. The milky smooth béchamel sauce has a few friends named artichoke and spinach over for an afternoon repast on fresh house-made lasagna chaises around the pool, and they are joined by some chicken and house-made ricotta with a scrumptious little puttanesca red sauce on the bottom. Well, way back in July 1877, The All-England club held its first tennis tournament at Wimbledon with a one pound, one shilling entrance fee, and a 25 guinea trophy. Out of a field of 21, W. Spencer Gore triumphed at Wimbledon on July 19 — after, of course, a rain delay. The rules of modern tennis started at Wimbledon, too. Dr. Henry Jones developed the size of the court, the scoring (based on a clock face), the number of games to win in a set, and even the idea of a service fault — and those rules remain virtually the same today. Tea and whites also remain part of the legacy of the early days of Wimbledon. We’ve got our own specially made tea and white lasagna — not quite the same, but close enough.
