I grew up on red beans and rice. My mom would make them every Monday. You knew as soon as you got home from school that it would be just deliciousness. The beans were always cooked to perfection , the sausage melted in your mouth. She always served it with rice and cornbread…..ahhhhhhhh Love in a bowl!! I cook it on Monday’s as much as a can but, I must confess I make them on Sundays sometimes.
