I didn’t do the washing today, but we did have the traditional Monday/laundry dish – Red Beans and Rice.
It was doctor day, but a bit of foreplanning produced lunch in about two minutes once we got home. All I had to do to serve was get out the plates and cut up the Romaine. Love my electrical appliance helpers! ;->

Don’t you just love when you can do lunch in 2 minutes!
Oh, definitely. Especially when we are so darned hungry! Best service in town! ;->
I like to cook with a minimum of fuss, and I can see that you do too. Your red beans and rice look so appetizing.
It took me almost thirty years of practice, but this batch was proclaimed, finally, PERFECT!
So what was the magic to cooking the beans?
Not sure. Probably had to do with the peppers, onions, and seasonings – see tags for seasoning list. Also, I soaked them for about twice as long, and cooked them for twice as long, mashing up about a third of the volume at about the halfway point of the cooking. The mashing was done at the time that I added the pre-sautéed veggies. It cooked on the stove, on low, the whole while we were out this morning, having cooked overnight in the Crock-ette. They were a big hit – eyes-rolled-back-in-the-head kind of big hit! ;->
My very, very favourite meal!!! 🙂
Not quite! In here there be sausage!
I’m not as clever as you are. We eat leftovers when we get back late and tired.
The little Crockette is a real lifesaver. It takes a while to cook things, but that just means that you need to plug it in earlier.
