Home Cooking Café, Harvey, LA Report #206

I was in the mood for some home cooking today and I had heard good things about this place.  I looked up their menu online and it showed the only two entrées they had were meatloaf and fried chicken.  That sounded good to me, so we headed on in!

When we got there we found out there was a lot more to their menu than meatloaf and fried chicken.

We wanted to start off with the Appetizer Sampler which consisted of two cheese balls, two ravioli and onion rings, but they were out of ravioli.  We decided to just get an order of cheeseballs.

The cheese balls are described as, “Mozzarella, cheddar cheese bacon, & broccoli in a ball”.  I cut one on half in the picture above.  Don’t look for any bacon, but you can taste a bacon flavor.  You will see little flecks of broccoli in the melted cheese.  They were pretty tasty, and the honey mustard sauce they came with was really good, but with the price of the entrée they come to $1.25 a ball.  And the ball is gone in two bites.  I’ll pass on these next time.

My dining partner got the Sandy’s Cajun Pasta.  Penne pasta tossed with sausage and shrimp in a creamy Alfredo type sauce.  It was really good.  She loved it.

I went with the meatloaf with mashed potatoes and red beans and rice.  You get two sides with every entrée.

I loved the way they served it with a little extra gravy without me even having to ask for it!  Everything was delicious.  Especially the red beans.  Nice and creamy and well seasoned.

Then, I had the surprise of my life.  I ordered bread pudding for dessert, and the waiter asked me if I was OK with raisins.  I said, “No, why do you ask”?  He said you can get it with OR without raisins!  NO ONE HAS EVER GIVEN ME THAT OPTION IN MY LIFE!!  I tolerate, but don’t like raisins in my bread pudding.  This was a truly magical day.

If you don’t like really sweet bread pudding this one is for you.  I thought it could have been a little sweeter.  It was a little on the dry side, and the rum sauce didn’t have a good rum flavor to it.  It was “Ok” bread pudding, but I’ll try something else for dessert next time.

Overall, we enjoyed this place.  I recommend it.
