Red Beans and Rice, So Nice

So we had our cousins over for dinner last night. They lost their home and had been living in Baton Rouge, but are now (sort of) back, in a new house. It was the first time we'd seen them in months, and Sarah cooked up a big pot of red beans. It was lovely.


  1. Red beans and rice on Monday. That is the way life should be. Mmmm. Did y'all make cornbread?

  2. Anonymous11:30 PM

    wait, wait, wait ... i fix black beans and rice but it might not be quite the same. if you mention a particular dish, how 'bout a recipe to go with it -- what kind of beans, what seasoning, etc.

  3. Just classic New Orleans Red Beans and rice. My lady makes a top notch version though I don't have her recipe handy. A quick Google turns up a slew of them. This one should give you the general idea (although it includes some decidedly idiosyncratic optional items).
