Monday, January 23, 2012


Share

If you like Wiener Wednesday, then you will love Tender Tuesday.

On Tuesday, from 3-5 pm, you can get 3 chicken tenders, some of our somewhat famous fries and some bbq sauce to dip them in for only $2.50.

The Tenders are a new item and will be added to the menu. They are all white meat and taste great.

Same great hot dogs. Same hours 3-5. Just a slight price increase to $2.00. Still an awesome deal for a great dog and our somewhat famous fries.

The Luther Burger

Louisa Chu wrote a great piece on the Luther Burger

Paula Deen and the culinary history of the Luther Burger

Paula Deen announced she has Type 2 Diabetes this morning, confirming gossip online, in print—and all the schadenfreude.

And Southern food takes the blame once again. But where in culinary history can one trace the giant lasagna sandwich? Or the doughnut burger?

Deen appeared on the Today show with Al Roker, revealing she was diagnosed three years ago and is now a paid spokesperson for Novo Nordisk, the company that makes the drug she's taking, Victroza, an injection that may be used to control blood sugar levels in adults with T2D.

Deen stars on the companion website, Diabetes in a New Light, featuring "diabetes-friendly recipes that everyone will love...created by Deen and her sons, Bobby and Jamie" says the site.

The Deens' first diabetes-friendly made-over recipe is their signature Lady and Sons Lagagna. It makes 12 servings in a 9x13 pan.

The original recipe—different ingredients but also made in a 9x13 pan—makes eight servings.

But it's Deen's Lots O'Meat Lasagna that's infamous. It's the one she ate as a giant lasagna sandwich—in a giant piece of garlic bread—all as big as a baseball mitt. You can watch the video here. Again very different ingredients, but same 9x13 pan, and makes only 4 servings. Four servings.

And not traditional Southern food.

Deen may have always eaten in moderation, as she told Roker, but she certainly didn't preach it. But did she need to, really? She's not a runway model claiming she eats whatever she wants, doesn't work out, and doesn't gain weight.

Because as we all know, diet—not dieting—is only one part of the equation. Exercise is another, and other factors.

Another sandwich for which Deen is credited—or blamed—is the doughnut burger.

Doughnut burgers—best known as the Luther Burger—use doughnuts instead of buns. Culinary legend has it that the late Luther Vandross either invented the doughnut burger or was a big fan. Vandross also publicly suffered from health problems, before his death at 54 in 2005.

Deen's doughnut burger is called The Lady's Brunch Burger. The LBB made its debut in a 2008 episode of Paula's Home Cooking on the Food Network entitled The Brunch Club. If you watch the video, you'll see Deen demurely say, "I've never done this before, y'all, in my entire life" and from her initial hesitation and surprised reaction, that could be true.

Wait Wait's Sandwich Monday featured the LBB—but their version included cheese. Deen's recipe does not include cheese. And actually on Wait Wait's segment Not My Job in which she talks about tofu, she tells Peter Sagal a different LBB origin story and adds, "It's only one serving per lifetime."

There's that moderation.

January 9 is National Apricot Day so we figured that a Apricot Mustard will fit in well.

All of out fruit mustards are exceptional. This one is no different.

Sweet, tangy with a little kick from brown mustard.

This is the replacement sauce for the fail original week 1 sauce, Bloody Mary. Jan 8 was Elvis's Birthday. He loved fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches so why not a peanut butter and banana sauce

Share

In honor of Elvis's birth, January 8 1935, we will be offering up a special Curry Banana Peanut Butter Dippin Sauce.

I think the King would approve.

My failure is your gain.

I made a bloody mary sauce that didn't meet my standards so instead of throwing it out, I'm gonna give it away for free.

Yes, U heard that right. Free, Nada, Zilch, you get the idea.

Just ask for a cup of the "Failed Sauce"

It really isn't that bad.

I don't have a lot left so offer is only good till I run out.

Well I thought that a Bloody Mary sauce would be a great idea since Jan 1 is Bloody Mary Day. Unfortunately, the sauce didn't turn out as planned.

So I will regroup and offer up 2 sauces for next week. One, will be Elvis inspired so stay tuned.
