Red Beans and Rice


Did you know that Louis Armstrong used to sign his notes Red Beans and Ricely Yours? I like knowing that Louis Armstrong liked his food.

I was introduced to this dish by my college roommate's sister in law who was from Louisiana. Today, it got me thinking about all those other legume and rice dishes that people love like pigeon peas and rice, black beans and rice. Beans and rice get eaten first.

I used this recipe, mainly. But without any hot sauce, because my kid does not like it.
