One Million Gallons of Beer on the Wall

Find out where Oktoberfest originated — the birth of the beer. You may just be surprised. Well, you can depend on our sharing some great food at the table to finish the week in fine fashion. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you at week’s end: Grits and grillades and broiled catfish tacos with fresh salsas. What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End Thursday, October 13 Grist and grillades. Our lovingly cooked pork loin medallions rest atop baked garlic cheese grits covered with a sumptuous tomato gravy. Folks may not know how our German friends started celebrating Oktoberfest. On October 12, 1810 (that long ago), Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became the King Ludwig I of Bavaria) married Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen (try saying that three times quickly) in Munich, and they celebrated on the fields in front of the city gates (naming them Theresienwiese — ”Therese’s fields” — in honor of the crown princess) with festivities of food, beer, and horse races. Folks, deciding to keep enjoying the festivities, shortened the name to “Wies’n.” No kidding. To us, it sounds like George …

Orson Welles, taking a note from John F. Kennedy, humorously observed, “Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.” Well, in today’s political climate, that’s probably the safer question. We’ve got some good, old-fashioned home cooking that will answer Mr. Welles well. Wednesday, October 12 Chicken enchiladas, fresh salsas, and rice with black beans. We take flavorful roasted chicken, rolled in lightly fried corn tortillas, and add our very own deeply delicious …

“O say can you see…,” Francis Scott Key wrote on September 13, 1814 as Key watched the British bombing Fort McHenry in Maryland. And, as day broke the grip of horrendous night, he saw the flag still flying. Yep.

Originally published in newspapers, the poem …

Charlie Brown is practicing his kicking, C. S. comments on mosquitos, and Charlotte Brontë drops by for some lovely prose. Here’s what we’ve got cooking for you to slide ever-so-slowly out of the summer: Louisiana red beans and rice, brisket tacos with fresh salsas and jicama slaw, chicken pasta primavera, and a shrimptastic po-boy Friday. What We’re Cooking for You This Week Tuesday, August 23 Special made Louisiana red beans and rice with hot water cornbread and house salad. 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. Seems just like yesterday, but 47 years ago in August, a whole bunch of folks met in a farmer’s field in a place called Woodstock to make some crazy history. Lots of music, food, dancing, tents, and big hair expressed the peace and love of those last days of the 1960’s. They didn’t have any beans, though. Probably would have to rename the event Ka-boomstock. Yep, you know what we mean. Come join us …

What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End Thursday, August 18 Chicken carbonara on bow tie pasta. Chicken carbonara with bow tie pasta. 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. L. M. Montgomery waxed, “Just to love! She did not ask to be loved. It was rapture enough just to sit there beside him in silence, alone in the summer night in the white splendor of moonshine, with the wind blowing down on them out of the pine woods.” Eating this carbonara pasta is a lot like that pine wind blowing down on young lovers — nostalgic and rapturous, a feeling only broken by the polite smacking of lips. Friday, August 19 Catfish tacos on lightly fried corn tortillas with fresh salsas, …
