“Shout! Shout! Let it all out, these are the things we can’t do without!” Tears for Fears sang thirty years ago. Who knew they were singing about political activism? Well, we like to think they sang about pulled pork sandwiches. Yes. English blokes rhapsodizing pork. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you to stem the end-of-summer blues: Fried chicken with a bean melange and whipped potatoes, pulled pork sandwiches on jalapeño bread, chicken carbonara pasta on bow tie pasta, and catfish tacos with fresh salsa, charro black beans, and jicama slaw. What We’re Cooking for You This Week Tuesday, August 16 Fried chicken with a melange of speckled butter beans, lady creams, and zipper creams with mixed sweet and white whipped potatoes. Chicken tenders bedded overnight in buttermilk and hot sauce come fried in a special flour recipe and served with a delicious melange of farm fresh speckled butter beans, lady creams, and zipper creams, with mixed sweet and white potatoes whipped into dreamy beauty, and flaky honey buttermilk biscuits. Way back in August 1990 Susan Hendrickson discovered the most complete T. …

Valentine’s Day Special Love Pasta Leaving on the Midnight Train

Gladys Knight and the Pips sang, “He kept dreaming (dreaming) Ooh, that some day he’d be a star (a superstar, but he didn’t get far)…But he sure found out the hard way That dreams don’t always come true, oh no, uh uh…Bought a one way ticket back to the life he once knew, oh yes he did, he said he would. Oh-oh, he’s leaving (leaving) on that midnight train to Georgia, yeah (leaving on a midnight train). Said he’s going back to find, ooh (going back to find) a simpler place and time, ooh, yeah.” Wish we had a back up group like the Pips parenthetically seconding in harmony all our words (yes, we do, ooh ooh). Hey, last chance on the Valentine’s Day Love Special Love Pasta. Orders end tonight at 6:00pm. Let us take you back to a simpler time where we can be the harmonic backup group to your Valentine’s Day!

Data suggests that cities whose teams win the Super Bowl see a significant rise in births nine months later. We like to call it the “September Phenomenon.” They even had a “Super Bowl Baby Choir.” Whatever. Who keeps those kinds of stats and sings about it? Folks who don’t eat so well, that’s who. Well, great food is cooking just for you: Louisiana red beans and rice, chicken and sausage jambalaya, pork tenderloin and smashed potatoes, chicken carbonara, and shrimp étoufée! Hope to see you at the table! Congratulations to the Denver Broncos for winning Super Bowl 50! What We’re Cooking for You This Week Monday, February 8, 2016 Special made 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. Well, our old friend, David Bowie, who’s gone now, sang a great song: “There’s a starman waiting in the sky. He’d like to come and meet us, but he thinks he’d blow our minds. There’s a starman waiting in the sky….” Starman. Right. More like …

Valentine’s Day Special Love Pasta

Miracle Max told Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride, “Sonny, true love is the greatest thing, in the world-except for a nice MLT — mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They’re so perky, I love that.” Well, Inigo looked for a miracle that would solve everybody’s problems. We don’t know about an MLT, just pasta and love. Let us help you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day with a little love from our kitchen to your home — it might just prove miraculous!

“Once in your life, you find her, someone who turns your heart around, next thing you know you’re closing down the town,” sang Christopher Cross. Have we got some food that will turn your heart around — have a looksee for what’s cooking in the kitchen for you this week: red beans and rice, sampler Tuesday, chicken carbonara, hamburger steaks and mashed potatoes, and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys!  What We’re Cooking for You This Week Monday, September 28 Special made Louisiana red beans & rice with hot water cornbread. Our red beans come full of flavor, cooked in our own house made smoked ham hock stock. “Red rover, red rover, let red beans come over.” Believe it or not, this silly song we sang as children really stands as the foundation of our society. Yep. We’re always inviting someone to come over, to be part of our holding-hands-chain — to be part of what makes us really human. We sing, we dance, we run, and we invite folks to come by for some good food. Yep. Beans are the foundation …

Many Women Floating in the River

“Maria, there are many women floating in the river…but you are the only one I want to stuff and stick on my wall…over the fireplace.” We can’t help you woo beautiful women, but we can get you some good food that inspires you. What’s cooking at week’s end for you: chicken carbonara, salmon croquettes, and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys!  What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End Thursday, July 30 Chicken carbonara served on penne pasta. Some chickens (the philosophical ones, to be sure) dream of a better world where they can cross the road without their motives being questioned or scrutinized. They, too, believe in the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of egginess (whatever that is). Our chicken carbonara is none so philosophically attuned as gastronomically exciting. Come see and visit with a deeply thoughtful chicken who’s fighting for chicken’s rights. Friday, July 31 — Salmon & Shrimp Ruckus! Salmon croquettes with an artichoke cream sauce and a fresh roasted vegetable medley. Lionel Richie came to singing at a young age, singing for family and friends at home or …

“Beam me up Scotty!” Captain Kirk cried, “This planet is unbelievably hot!” We can’t beam you out of the heat, but we can cook you some great food. What’s cooking in the kitchen for you: red beans & rice, fried chicken, shredded pork tacos, chicken carbonara, salmon croquettes, and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys!  What We’re Cooking for You This Week Monday, July 27  Louisiana red beans & rice with biscuits. K.C. and the Sunshine Band dropped by the other day. “Oh, do a little dance, make a little grub, get down tonight, get down tonight…Oh, do a little dance, fry a little ham, get down tonight, get down tonight.” Beans set the disco night on fire. And, they are the original horn section (yes, we’re back on flatulence jokes). That’s why K.C. came by. Tuesday, July 28 — Crispy Chicken Day! Fried chicken tenders with mashed potatoes and pan fried cabbage. One of the little known facts about the original Star Trek is that Gene Roddenberry originally wanted to call the character “Dr. Spock” by another name, “Dr. Bock,” after his favorite kind of beer.

Monday’s here, and we’ve got great things working in the kitchen! So, here’s the fabulous food waiting for you: red beans & rice, pork tender loin, shrimp étouffée, and chicken carbonara!  What We’re Cooking for You This Week July 4 is just around the corner, so please check What’s in the Fridge & Freezer for your special weekend. Monday, June 29  Louisiana red beans & rice with S.H.E. bread. The Monday standard has arrived in our red beans and rice. These red beans and rice are like a JATO (Jet Assisted Take Off) rocket for the week. Yes, it’s a gas joke. But, play your cards right by eating some beans, and Maverick and Goose just might appear to take you for a ride — or Iceman and Slider if you like slick hair and big teeth. “Kick the tires and light the fires,” Maverick says to Goose as they drop by Stone House Eats to fill their bellies before jumping in their Tomcat to open up a can on some bad guys (political correctness prevents us from actually naming the “bad guys”).
