Red Beans And Rice

There aren’t many food traditions that characterize New Orleans better than Red Beans & Rice on Mondays. Women did laundry on Mondays while their pot of Red Beans simmer all day. Red Beans on Mondays continue to be a New Orleans tradition. In this day, in resturants you will find the special of the day is Red Beans and rice. I cooked my beans on Monday.Sorry, no recipe. If I tell you what's in it, I may have get the idea! LOL!

First Day of School -- Let's Eat!

Today is the first day of school. Both of my girls are finally in the same school, therefore, they both will be riding the bus together!!! Can we say--- NO MORE TRANSPORTING!!!!! No more school traffic. No more waiting in the heat/cold!! Woo-Hoo!
Camille starts her first year of high school. Here is a pic of them before they left this morning.

I am going to cook a special meal today, commemorating this milestone. The fact that I cooked on today is worth celebration. Here's the menu (will post recipes later):

Bread (haven't decided exactly what type)

My Tea Set

Here is a pic of the tea set I purchased during a June 2010 trip to Pignon, Haiti . The seller started out with a price of $40. The final price was $12. Notice the picture of me & Camille. It's our kitchen therefore it deserves our portrait. The ceramic figure is one I painted.

Banana Pudding

I don't like a banana pudding that is overpowered with a banana-ry taste (A sista is entitled to make up descriptive words as needed. LOL!). Vanilla pudding tones down the taste. Try it, you'll like it!
