Hello sweet friends to the first Travels in the South for 2017! Today I want to show you something that comes from the kitchen of the Hotel Thompson. You are going to love this!
When my pet rock was visiting Miss Harper Lee and Tallulah Bee in New Orleans, Louisiana, Bashful got hooked on a specialty there named Red Beans and Rice. If you look here, you will find the recipe and pictures from that trip.
Well when Bashful came home, there were some of those amazing Camellia beans in his package. So you know mom had to try them. So this past Monday, mom put on a huge pot just like Miss Harper Lee’s mom does on Mondays.
When it was ready to serve, mom whipped up some rice and of course her homemade cornbread to go with dinner. And let me tell you, it is an awesome recipe. Dad had two bowls! Does that tell you anything?
So friends – there you go. A dish from mom’s kitchen! Thanks Miss Harper for the recipe and wonderful beans. This just might be our weekly dinner on Monday’s now. ❤
