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 to.......you get the idea! LOL!

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)
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.
