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. This week way back in 1994, “Big” George Foreman won the world heavyweight title at age 45, the oldest fighter to win the title. Most may think it’s the lean cooking from his George Foreman grills (which came onto the market in 1994), but we know the truth. A hard workout regime and lots of red beans and rice helped the aging pugilist gain the title. Yep. Well, these may not help you win the world heavyweight title, but they will give you the strength and fiber to make it to the workaday finish line on Friday.

Chicken carbonara on bow tie pasta with house salad and 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. We couldn’t resist this chicken joke: Why do chicken coops have two doors? If they had four, they’d be sedans! Yolk, yolk, yolk….

Braised beef short ribs, baked garlic cheese grits, house salad, and house-made bread. Our beef slowly cooks in wine and seasonings and comes served over baked garlic cheese grits with lots of lovely gravy. This week way back in 1900, author Margaret Mitchell entered this world. For six years, she worked for the Atlanta Journal as a reporter until a serious ankle injury limited her movements. So, at a small desk with an antique typewriter, she began working on the tale of the war torn South with her interesting and trying heroine Scarlett O’Hara. The book proved a huge bestseller, selling one million copies in its first six months in print and eight million by the time she died in 1949 (and over 30 million more to date). Of course, the movie, starring Clark Gable, Olivia de Havilland, and Vivian Leigh, made box office history. And Miss Margaret just couldn’t understand why folks made such a fuss about her little book — and it all started with a life-changing ankle injury.
