Cooking red beans and rice on a Monday is a time honored Louisiana tradition. Monday was also wash day. So someone would put on the beans, another would cook the rice, cornbread etc. You get the gist. The ladies would wash and hang out their clothes to dry while the children scampered around the yard and handed them the clothes pins! When the wash was done, dinner was all ready to go!

Tres Bien! Bon Appetit!
