Often times I build the Saturday night menu around whatever protein is on sale at my preferred grocery provider. Sometimes someone’s birthday is creeping up upon us and I try to cook something I know they are particularly fond of. And other times I decide to use an obscure excuse to cook something that I want to eat. 🙂
This week the obscure excuse is that Ash Wednesday is this coming week. Ash Wednesday makes me think of Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras makes me think of New Orleans and New Orleans reminds me, among other things, of red beans & rice. Guess what was for dinner this week.
