New Orleans Red Beans and Rice Monday Wash Day

nelda thompson


When I lived in New Orleans this recipe was given to me, this was 44 years ago. I have seen many recipes for this dish, but, the beautiful New Orleans Cajun woman told me the story and gave the recipe to me. On wash days, Mondays to be exact, they put this on and therefore had dinner ready for their families. They only had to finish up with the garlic French bread and serve.
