Thanksgiving Leftover Recipe for Stuffing!

Folks I stumbled upon another brilliant way to get rid of stuffing (IF you have any leftover!!!)  I always have it left over because it’s probably my favorite part of the meal besides gravy, and I make double the amount of stuffing to the amount of anything else I make!!

Fry up some breakfast sausage while you’re nuking your stuffing. If you would prefer, Italian sausage works beautifully as well.  Sometimes Lula’s for Lunch…and More! Catering  puts Italian sausage in our stuffing if I’m in that sort of mood for Thanksgiving.   Lay the sausage on top of the hot stuffing and top it with a fried egg.  Kind of like eggs ‘n toast but richer and BETTER!!!!   This should be accompanied by a steaming hot cup of coffee and a glass of freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice.  Just sayin’.   Happy coma, Lula

Thanksgiving and Holiday Menus and Gifts!

What a weird, and sometimes devastating, freakin’ year.  Still, we have things to be thankful for.  Right now I’m extremely grateful for my psycho-pug Floyd’s SNORES by my side.  When we rescued him he wouldn’t stretch out or offer his belly for rubbing…he would only curl up tightly in a protective ball to sleep, after circling so many times we couldn’t count.   Now he takes complete ownership of whatever surface he’s lolling on, including US.  I’m REALLY thankful for free range turkeys and heirloom apples, old friends and ornery relatives.I’m thankful for pumpkin patches and the yumminess that comes from them, and GRAVY.  I could DRINK gravy (and once a year, DO), how about you?   I’m SO THANKFUL for YOU – you who have needed me, wanted me, discovered me, and kept me busy doing what I love to do.  But mostly, I am deeply and forever grateful to all of our first responders who, unless they decide to QUIT, don’t have a choice in this pandemic and are heroically muddling through the best they can, with great honor and humility.
For the HOLIDAYS, this year will be different from any other and you won’t be partying with your co-workers, clients or loved ones like you’re used to.  Lula’s can HELP!  Send some Holiday LOVE from Lula’s to show you care. Our Holiday Gift MENU does not disappoint, and if you scroll down the menu you’ll see our Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Menus to pre order from NOW!.  Our House Smoked Bourbon King Salmon Boxes are delicious. A 4.5-5 oz portion with Lula’s Black Bread, Secret Awesomesauce, Cucumbers, Lemon, and Tomato-Caper-Red Onion Brunoise is all boxed up and delivered to your recipient’s door.  We’re also offering a jazzed up version of our Charcuterie Box, including Toasted Marconas and Homemade Preserves, as well as our Bourbon Pecan Bark (Christmas CRACK!) in 8oz bags (picture below).   We deliver within a 50 mile radius, and we’re taking orders now.   Our supply won’t last – I beg of you, give me plenty of notice!    Don’t forget it’s only me touching the food so it’ll be handed to you or your loved ones and clients in pristine condition to be enjoyed worry free.   We’ll help you safely celebrate during this pandemic!

Formal Seaweed?!?

How cute is this?  You can find this dried Bowtie SEAWEED in the Asian section of a good supermarket.  Seaweed is LOADED with nutrients, extremely low in calories, and can be enjoyed in virtually any soup or casserole without a hint of the “sea”.   Seaweed is now being cultivated, it’s become so popular.  If you LIKE seaweed, order it raw in a seaweed salad at many Asian restaurants.  I love it both ways.    If you haven’t tried it,  be BRAVE, do so, and be GOOD to yourself!!  With love, Lula

Thanksgiving is 3 weeks away…but before that, we’re all pretty much in need of some comfort due to this stressful election season.  I’ve provided just that with this week’s menu, featuring our Mesquite Mac ‘n Cheese, either our creamy luscious vegetarian version with a little kick, some sweet peppers & onions, mesquite seasoning and Chipotle-Garlic cheese, or you can add Mesquite Chicken or Mesquite Smoked Pulled Pork to the mix.   We’re also whipping up some Meatball Casserole with 4 Cheeses, our End of Summer Marinara and Penne.  The meatballs are all beef. with our special Italian blend of spices.  I guess I’m in an Italian mood because I’m also making soul satisfying Cane Creek Risotto with Shrimp, AND Chicken Marsala!   I will have busy, satisfied hands this week!
