Fried chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, savory-sweet broccoli, and biscuits. Chicken tenders bedded overnight in buttermilk and hot sauce come fried in a special flour recipe and served with mashed potatoes, savory sweet roasted broccoli, and flaky honey buttermilk biscuits — good home-cooking at its best. Well, here’s a chicken joke for Tuesday: “A man was driving along a freeway when he noticed a chicken running alongside his car. He was amazed to see the chicken keeping up with him, as he was doing 50 mph. He accelerated to 60, and the chicken stayed right next to him. He sped up to 75 mph, and the chicken passed him. The man noticed that the chicken had three legs. So, he followed the chicken down a road and ended up at a farm. He got out of his car and saw that all the chickens had three legs. He asked the farmer, “What’s up with these chickens?” The farmer said, “Well, everybody likes chicken legs, so I bred a three-legged bird. I’m going to be a millionaire.” The man asked him how they tasted. The farmer said, “I don’t know, haven’t caught one yet.”

We’ll have a special French onion soup available all week!

Sandwich & Wrap Wednesday, June 28, 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. Someone once offered some helpful advice for the modern world, “Never trust someone who takes hours to text you back, but when you hang out with them they check their phone every minute.”

Meatloaf with mama’s rice and roasted Brussel sprouts. Our meatloaf is a wonderful mix of beef, our own Stone House Eats house-made bread crumbs, and chopped-to-bits veggies. Meatloaf is mom’s way of hiding surprisingly good things in a bastion of beef covered in a sweet and sour tomato sauce flavored with Panola Gourmet Sauce. From Reader’s Digest jokes, ‘My three-year-old daughter stuck out her hand and said, “Look at the fly I killed, Mommy.” Since she was eating a juicy pickle at the time, I thrust her contaminated hands under the faucet and washed them with antibacterial soap. After sitting her down to finish her pickle, I asked, with a touch of awe, “How did you kill that fly all by yourself?” Between bites, she said, “I hit it with my pickle.”’ Whoops!

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. Few know The Bee Gees, the Brothers Gibb from Down Under, loved sandwiches. Sometimes, they’d get a little silly singing a love song for sandwiches: “Here in my hands I found my paradise, my only chance for happiness, and if I lose you now, I think I would die. Say you’ll always be my sandwich we can make it shine; we can take a long lunch just a minute at a time. More than a sandwich, more than a sandwich to me….” Yep. Love and sandwiches, it must be Wednesday.

We’ll have a special tomato basil soup available all week! You can get a soup and salad or try half a sandwich and soup!

Thursday, June 22, 2017

Pork scallopini with creamy polenta, house salad, and house bread or try our salmon croquettes with house salad and bread. Marinated pork tenderloin pounded thinly and lightly breaded is served atop our creamy polenta with house salad and house bread. Singer-songwriter Carole King hit number one this week with her percussive, syncopated, lyrically beautiful love song, “I Feel the Earth Move Under My Feet.” Of course, it’s a love song, but we can imagine Carole sitting at the piano with pen, paper, and a plate of pork scallopini as she composes this little ditty. Who knows, maybe the song was written about a great meal? And, then again, maybe it’s just a love song. Well, who couldn’t sing about wonderfully prepared pork like a love song?

Beefsteak tacos on fresh tortillas with pickled red onions and roasted corn, charro black beans, and fresh salsa. We take marinated, slow-cooked beefsteak, add it to fresh tortillas, top it with pickled red onions and roasted fresh corn, feta crumbles, and avocado crema, and serve it with our own charro black beans and fresh house-made salsa. The late, sun-glassed musician Roy Orbison notes, “I may be a living legend, but that sure don’t help when I’ve got to change a flat tire.”

Saveur Magazine says, “Great sandwiches don’t happen by accident: You’ve got to balance moistness and crunch, weigh toppings and main components, choose bread that will make each element shine, and construct them so that every bite yields the ultimate satisfaction.” Well, it seems a bit much for describing the lowly sandwich, but we would agree that well-constructed sandwiches make the day ultimately satisfying.

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!

Thursday, June 15, 2017

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.

Hamburger steaks, mashed potatoes, and savory-sweet green beans. We offer our special mix of hamburger, sausage, house-made bread crumbs, and seasonings with a fresh gravy sided by, well, old standbys, mashed potatoes and savory-sweet green beans. Comedian Paul F. Tompkins notes, “When I was younger I was strictly meat-and-potatoes and I just wouldn’t try things. As I have gotten older, I’m much more adventurous but still not like whoever that dude is on whatever show it is who just goes around and eats bugs everywhere.” We would agree, it’s a little too early in the week to go eating bugs.

We’ll have a special summer vegetable soup made with our own beef stock available all week!

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. Chef Yotam Ottolenghi shares, “A well-made salad must have a certain uniformity; it should make perfect sense for those ingredients to share a bowl.” Well, that might just be overthinking a salad, but sometimes we need some excitement in a salad. Exciting salads almost sounds like an oxymoron.

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. Way back in 1982, the lovable E.T. The Extraterrestrial was released to fab reviews. Garnering four Academy Awards, the movie sits in the top ten list of all time earners. We wonder if E.T. would have liked a little chicken carbonara before he broke into the Reese’s Pieces — it might have helped him “Phone home” sooner. Come join us for a wonderful week at the table, we’d love to see you!

Chicken cacciatore on angel hair pasta with house bread and salad. Our chicken breast is pan-fried in butter with a crushed plum tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, and fresh red peppers sauce served on a bed angel hair pasta. Correcting on a typewriter wasn’t always so easy. Texas native Bette Nesmith Graham struggled to type well in her day job until one day as she was painting holiday decorations she wondered, “Why can’t I do this when I make a mistake on my typewriter?” In her kitchen in 1951 she made a water-based whiteout in her blender and dubbed it “Mistake Out.” It was a hit and her co-workers kept asking for more. She refined the mixture and began filling orders until 1956 when she was fired for making a mistake she didn’t manage to correct: she mistakenly put her own company’s name on a document. Whoops. She had the last laugh. She went full-time in making what she now called “Liquid Paper,” and she ran the business until 1979 when she sold it to Gillette for $47.5 million and royalties. Impressive. But, Liquid Paper was not her sole creation. She also “invented” Michael Nesmith, guitarist and songwriter for The Monkees, by giving birth to him. Well, there you have it.

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

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. Southerner William Morrison and confectioner John C. Wharton patented a wonder-making candy in 1899: cotton candy. They sold 68,000 boxes of the confection at the 1904 World’s Fair under the silly name of “fairy floss.” It wasn’t until 1921 when another Southerner named Joseph Lascaux patented another way of making that sugary delight that we got the name “cotton candy.” The real irony is that both Morrison and Lascaux were dentists, with Morrison later becoming the president of the Tennessee State Dental Association.  And Lascaux, well, he sold the cotton candy right from his New Orleans dental office. Were they villains or heroes or just brilliant marketeers? You be the judge.

Sandwich & Wrap Wednesday, May 30, 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. Wild Woody’s Chill and Grill of Roseville, Michigan constructed the largest sandwich ever made in March 2005. The leviathan sandwich weighed 5,440 lbs., and it contained 150 lbs. of mustard, 1,032 lbs. of corned beef, 260 lbs. of cheese, 530 lbs. of lettuce, and 3,568 lbs. of bread. This gargantuan corned beef was 17.5 in thick and was 12 ft long and 12 ft wide. We wonder if they had a sandwich-eating contest — maybe the Jolly Green Giant was in town?

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Chicken cacciatore on angel hair pasta with house bread and salad. Our chicken breast is pan-fried in butter with a crushed plum tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, and fresh red peppers sauce served on a bed angel hair pasta. After that cotton candy delightful debacle, you’ll be glad to know another southerner from New Orleans with the wonderful name of Levi Spear Parmly invented dental floss in 1815. Originally, he used silk floss to encourage people to keep their gums clean. Not until World War II was nylon floss developed by another New Orleans doctor and dean of the Tulane college of medicine named Charles C. Bass. Oddly enough, the original name of “plaque garrote” didn’t hold for what we now call “dental floss.” Wonder why.
