Since apparently red beans and rice on Mondays are a thing in New Orleans, I decided to try my hand at a healthier version. Tonight, I made an andouille chicken sausage red beans and cauliflower rice! It was good, but I look forward to doing some tweaking to the recipe. Then we had some dessert of chocolate halo top ice cream with strawberries!
So sad that I didn't get to share this awesome recipe on Snapchat today (my phone is MIA), but would love to share the secret to delish red beans and rice with you! I'll post it on @having_fun_homemade Facebook tomorrow!
Yesterday's lunch before the #oldneworleansrum distillery tour. #coopsplace a very unassuming place along #decatur street. The food in this place is unquestionably New Orleans flavor and surprisingly more elevated than we would have expected. We started with their spicy bloody Mary, topped with pickled green beans. This could easily convert me to a bloody Mary fan! The smoked red fish crostini with pickled red onions and goat cheese appetizer was phenomenal! Barbecue shrimp, though a bit tough to peel, were so flavorful and I used every piece of that bread to sop up that left over sauce. Karen's traditional red beans & rice with smoked sausage was every bit what she was longing for. Marissa, our waitress definitely made this experience so much more than just a meal.

Continuing my #Creole theme from this morning... red beans & rice and crabcakes with lemon buerre blanc with duck. Yes, all from scratch... cuz it's the weekend, and that's how I roll. #creolefood#redbeansandrice#crabcakes
Took some of my homemade wild turkey pastrami and added it to some red beans and rice. It just seemed incomplete so I nestled a couple of fried eggs down in the middle and dusted it with Cajun seasoning and a few drops of hot sauce. I got very emotional after the first few bites. This is so good I feel guilty. Made some cinnamon chocolate chip banana nut muffins for dessert!
