Roast beef Po Boy
There is almost nothing better in the sandwich category then a great big, dripping with gravy, roast beef po boy sandwich. If you didn’t know before, the secret to this sandwich is the quality of the French bread used. Publix Supermarket has one of the best bakery operations in the metro Atlanta area and their French bread is top notch. Lee’s Bakery on Buford Highway and La Suprema Bakery with five locations in Atlanta bake short loaves for individual sandwiches and both make an excellent product.
Whether the choice is top round or a chuck roast, if the meat is tender, seasoned well, properly shredded and swimming in good brown gravy, all that is needed is to add mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato. Pickles can be an option as well. Mmm mmm good!
That old tale that says if the month has an “r” in it, it must be oyster season rings true. Lucky for everyone, oysters are plentiful now and to purchase a pail swimming in oyster liquor is the route to take. The Buford Highway Farmers Market is the place to get them and when you dust them with a one to three ratio of cornmeal to flour and fry them in 3 to 4 inches of vegetable or canola oil for a minute or two, you have created another taste sensation. Whether you make a sandwich with some of that good French bread or use thick slices of Texas toast, your guests will rave.
Using the same breading and frying technique, your guest will quickly let you know if they want the shrimp piled on a sandwich or eaten alone, especially after they are made aware of the homemade remoulade sauce to dip them in. Its origins in France and later popularized in New Orleans, it is a French term meaning a sauce made from a mayonnaise base and flavored with mustard and herbs. It also goes extremely well with boiled shrimp, lobster and most items that come from the sea.
- 1 pint mayo
- 1 t Worcestershire
- ½ C Creole mustard
- 2 T yellow mustard

Asian Chicken Wings
Delicious and different is the following recipe for some amazing chicken wings. Simply put the recipe takes chicken wings to a whole new level. The wings are fried twice and that is why they are so crispy. If the sauce that goes with this recipe is too time consuming, just fry the wings per the recipe and add the old standby celery spears and ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping.
