    Red beans are actually a Monday dish. This was because Monday was the clothes washing day and red beans were an easy dish that required little attention while clothes were being washed. Good recipe though.

    This is fantastic and very easy to make. I fixed it for a group get-together at work and there wasn’t one bean left over. I used canned beans because of time constraints, but otherwise didn’t change the recipe at all. I’ll make it again very soon.

    I really enjoy your recipes/videos very much and refer to them often. But I must tell you that popular folklore and accepted wisdom has always stated that Red Beans and Rice has historically been cooked on MONDAY not Thursday. As a matter of fact you are the first person I’ve ever heard claim it as a Thursday meal. I was born in New Orleans and lived there most of my life so I know these things LOL! Keep up the good work!

    Hi Raymond,

    Thanks for your comment.

    I’ve heard Monday to be the red beans and rice day also.

    I think Beryl’s mom and grandmother made it on Thursdays for some reason.

    Thanks for visiting our web site and videos!

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for checking on us.

    Beryl has been having to work a lot of hours at her job, and has just been too worn out to make any more videos for a while.

    We do hope to make some more in the future.

    We really appreciate you checking in!

    Beryl and Mike
