Roy’s Cool Glasses

He was a sickly kid, but later turned into a great soccer player in college and solid newspaper writer. He’s our old friend Bram. Yep. Bram Stoker’s immortal “Dracula” went on sale in late May 1897. Never know what you might discover in the dustbins of history. Here’s what’s cooking for you at week’s end: Roasted chicken breast over crispy polenta with fresh tomato sauce, and a shrimptastic po-boy Friday. What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End Thursday, May 26 Roasted chicken breast with fresh tomato sauce over crispy polenta with savory-sweet green beans. Wonderfully seasoned and roasted chicken breast tops a crispy polenta cake with fresh tomato sauce, and it comes with our savory-sweet green beans, house bread, and house salad. Roy Orbison notes, “I may be a living legend, but that sure don’t help when I’ve got to change a flat tire.” Yes, most of us are humbled before the difficulties of operating a car. This polenta, though, will make you famous and smart (and you can wear cool glasses like Roy), and it just might help …

Is anyone tired of the presidential “Super Tuesday” talk? Come to our house for a different kind of “super Tuesday” — Elmer Fudd’s in town, and he’s dressed for heavy metal. Here’s what’s cooking for you this week: stuffed chicken thighs on creamy polenta, white chili, overnight brisket with rice, and shrimp with grits.

She Rode a Flaming Turkey

“She rode a flaming turkey, she held a shining spoon. She she came to cook some vittles for her folks in the room,” Frankie Laine wrote in some altered lyrics for “Blazing Saddles.” You, too, can come whooping and hollering into Thanksgiving Day with some great food, wielding a mighty spoon!

Gumbo Dance

Well, we’ve just about made it to Friday! Check what we’ve got cooking for you at week’s end: gumbo and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys!  What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End Thursday, September 24 Gumbo and rice. We make our gumbo with a dark roux, chicken, sausage, and the trinity of bell pepper, onion, and celery. Oh, Grandpa Justin would add sauterne wine, a cup or two or three, and so do we. A guy named Bob Merrill wrote a little ditty originally called “Gumbo Italiano” about a girl from south Louisiana who returns to Italy wanting to introduce some new things, like gumbo. Thing is, gumbo wasn’t as popular as the mambo, a dance that originated in 1930’s Cuba. So, our old friend Rosemary Clooney croons in her unique style, “Hey mambo! Mambo italiano!” and a song was born. Around here, though, we’d much rather sing and dance about gumbo — it will make you “happy in the feets.” Friday, September 25 Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boy and a house salad. Take a half-size po-boy, hollow the …

Here Comes the Rain

“Here comes the rain, I love the rain!” sang that 80’s alternative band The Cult. We love the rain, and we sure need some! What’s cooking in the kitchen for you at week’s end: barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys!  What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End Thursday, August 20 — Standard Menu Pimento cheese and bacon on our house made bread. We take two cheeses, add roasted red peppers, green onions, and house made fresh mayo to form this delightfully light and tasty homage to the South. American cheese got its start late in the 19th century when folks wanted to make a similar cheese to the soft French Nêufchatel. Add the very mild pimiento pepper, a Spanish import to the U.S. around that time, and you have the ground from which our vaunted pimento cheese sprang. Pimento (a shortening of the Spanish) cheese began in New York City (don’t tell anybody in the South) as a fancy little sandwich spread of this soft American cheese and pimentos. Eventually, thank goodness, it migrated to the South were it’s become a staple of church luncheons, ladies’ …

Good food train coming to town! Some wonderfully delicious food is coming this week: fried pork chops, chicken pot pie, shrimp pasta primavera, barbecue stuffed shrimp po-boys, and salmon croquettes. All aboard! What We’re Cooking for You This Week Guess What! Starting Monday, June 22 we’ll open for lunch! We hope you share our excitement — we’ll have the same great standards available every Monday just for you. Tuesday, June 16 Fried pork chops, crispy polenta, okra with tomatoes, & buttermilk honey biscuits. Blissfully slumbering overnight in a special saucy boudoir of buttermilk and seasonings, these pork chops will ceremoniously swim with their special flour bathing suits in a big pot of hot grease. It’s the stuff of dreams, the greasy kind of dreams that change lives in the good way. No one gets hurt, everybody’s happy, big fluffy clouds with pleasant temps all day, LSU wins all the major NCAA sports titles, and there’s no such thing as too much grease or bad cholesterol. Have another pork chop, dreamer…”Blue skies smiling at me, nothing but blue skies, smiling at me” (Ella …

Gumbo Train is Coming

Gumbo for Friday!   We Sold All our Gumbo on Wednesday, so we Made Some More… Chicken & andouille sausage gumbo, potato salad, rice, and SHE bread. “The roux’s the thing wherein we’ll catch the conscience of the king,” Hamlet said, smacking his lips. The roux won’t help Hamlet make a decision, but this deep, dark roux will help you have a great hump day — add some rice, or potato salad, and you’ve got all the answers you need to all of life’s questions. We’ve Also Got Salmon Today… Salmon croquettes, broccoli and rice casserole, and a house salad. Well, we’re still fishing Bayou Bartholomew — who knew so many salmon migrated south for the winter?  We caught some beauties, and we formed them into patties with bread crumbs and seasonings, and pan fried to perfection — they come served with a light, lemony butter sauce. Add some broccoli and rice casserole, and you’ve got a great meal for a Lenten Friday.
