A cold day, a wet day — pork chops of the world unite! The pork chop express rolls into town on some lovely, greasy skids. Here’s what’s cooking this week: pork chops and smashed potatoes, gumbo, spaghetti and meatballs with fresh marinara, and shrimptastic Friday! Hope to see you at the table! What We’re Cooking for You This Week Tuesday, January 26 Fried pork chops, smashed potatoes and gravy, and roasted broccoli. 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 and lovely grease. Danny Zuko in Grease excitedly says, “Why, these pork chops are auto-matic. They’re system-matic. They’re hyyyyydro-matic. Why, they’re greased lightning!” as he sits at the table with Granny Zuko over a greasy, feasty plate of special fried pork chops. Danny had it right. Too bad we can’t put graphic flames down the sides of the pork chops to show how cool they really are. Wednesday, January 27 All we need is one word: Gumbo! We make our gumbo with a dark roux, chicken, …

Have a look at what’s cooking in the kitchen for you this week: red beans and rice, chicken carbonara, and chicken and sausage gumbo on Wednesday! What We’re Cooking for You This Week Monday, November 23 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. Believe it or don’t, the pig-nosed purple frog lives in the Western Ghats on the Indian Subcontinent, and our little friend only recently received recognition (Biju & Bossuyt, 2003). Tadpoles had been identified as early at 1918, but the adult (known by the local residents) remained elusive and largely ignored until the Biju & Bossuyt study. Our purple friend spends up to 50 weeks in the mud before emerging for about two weeks during the monsoon season to mate. Good thing he had the beans today, it’ll help find a girlfriend.

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 …

“I hear that train a-comin’, it’s comin’ round the bend, and I ain’t seen sunshine in…I don’t know when,” sang Johnny Cash. Have we got some sunshine for you — have a gander a what’s cooking in the kitchen for you this week: fried chicken with signature potatoes, shrimp cannelloni, gumbo, and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys!  What We’re Cooking for You This Week Monday, September 21 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. Some Native American tribes use rattles made from gourds or turtle shells for children’s toys, but mostly they were used in ceremonies. These rattles were a symbol of music, spirituality, dance and medicine for most of these tribal folk. What makes the rattle, well, rattle? Sometimes small rocks, but most tribes, especially those in the Southwest, used beans. Yep. There you have it — beans, the rattling power behind culture. Tuesday, September 22 Fried chicken tenders with signature potatoes, roasted seasonal vegetables, and a honey buttermilk biscuit. Lovingly bedded overnight …

Mamie Eisenhower interestingly observed, “Ike runs the country, and I turn the pork chops.” Hey, everybody knows where they fit in the world when they eat pork chops (even if they no longer fit into their jeans). Pork is power and order and good old fashioned greasy goodness. Wednesday, September 16 Shrimp prepared in a luscious, fresh sauce served over fried grits. Well, the mudbugs’ glamorous cousin finds more glory in this delicious dish.
