What We’re Cooking for You This Week
Many thanks to all the folks who joined us for all the good food and great chefs at the North Delta Food and Wine Festival Friday October 13! For our offerings of catfish quenelles (dumplings) with creole cream sauce, browned-butter pecan bread pudding with white chocolate rum sauce, and our special blue cheese roll with sautéed onions, Granny Smith apples, roasted pecans, pine nuts, and walnuts, Stone House Eats was voted best chef! Thanks to all the folks who visited our table, we were delighted to see you!
We will be closed the week of October 24-26, 2017 due to large catering jobs that week! We’ll re-open Tuesday, October 31, 2017 for some great lunches!
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.

Crepes with slow-cooked greens and hog jowl confit with a red eye gravy served on roasted tomatoes with our house salad and bread. Steppenwolf sings about these crepes: “I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine on a cloud of sound I drift in the night. Any place it goes is right, goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here. Well, you don’t know what we can find, why don’t you come with me little girl on a magic crepe-it ride?” Yes, those are the original lyrics. Apparently, John Reve and Ruston Moreve were big crepe fans. Who knew?

Sandwich & Wrap Wednesday, October 18, 2017
Sandwiches and wraps Wednesdays! We’ll have all our sandwiches and wraps available for lunch on Wednesdays. We’ve got a new salad you can try: our muffuletta salad! Comes with our mixed romaine and spring mix, purple onions, tomatoes and house dressing topped with genoa salami, pepperoni, smoked ham, swiss cheese, and our very own olive spread. Well, the Men Down Under sang about a “vegemite sandwich” — something the Aussie’s apparently love. Vegemite is a black spread made from leftover brewer’s yeast and various vegetable and seasoning additives. Melbournian Cyril Percy Callister developed the spread in 1922 from brewer’s yeast being dumped by breweries after brewing beer, and it boasts a salty, mildly bitter, malty taste, with a little bit of umami on the side. Hilda and Laurel Armstrong of Albert Park, Victoria won the national contest prize of £50 naming the new concoction “Vegemite” — and, for the rest of their lives they were known as “The Vegemite Girls.” Yep. That’s history for you.

Grandpa Justin’s chicken á la creole with our house salad and bread. Our specially seasoned and carefully roasted chicken is deboned and comes served in Grandpa Justin’s special creole sauce atop some wonderful Louisiana rice. Grandpa Justin tells a great story about fishing: “A Game Warden always noticed that Old John always caught his limit of fish. One day he finally asked Old John how he always got his limit. Old John invited him to go along. It wasn’t long til they got to Old John’s favorite spot and anchored. Old John reaches down into his tackle box and pulls out a stick of dynamite…lit it and threw it in the lake. KA-BOOM!
Now there’s fish floating all over the place. ‘Whoa,’ said the warden, ‘that’s illegal.’ Well, Old John just reaches in and pulls out another stick. He lights it and throws it in: KA-BOOM, more fish! The Warden starts giving John the third degree, ‘John, I am going to have to arrest you if you do that again. It’s illegal to have dynamite, let alone use it for fishing.’ While the warden is giving him the third degree, Old John just reaches in the tackle box and pulls out another stick of dynamite, lights it and tosses it to the Warden and said ‘Now, you gonna talk all day or fish?'”
