Monday

Thank you to I'm a Nola girl for sharing....

Thank you to one of my favorite bloggers I'm a Nola Girl, for her recent post on red beans and rice..
It reminded me of growing up in New Orleans, and my moms red beans and rice. I would argue her's' is some of the best..... I love hearing the background on why red beans and rice is traditionally served on Mondays.. I must share though I love mine with Andouille Sausage.. 
On Mondays in New Orleans, there is one thing you can always be certain of - there will be red beans and rice.  It is served in every school cafeteria, hospital, restaurant, and family residence.  Traditionally, Monday was wash day, and since it took all day to do the wash, red beans would spend their day simmering away on the back burner seasoned with the ham bone from Sunday's supper.
