I make it the way I enjoyed it in New Orleans, with a scoop of rice over the creamy beans. I first went to New Orleans sometime in the early 1990s, attending the National Education Association Representative Assembly, representing my local teacher’s association. Of course, I was captivated by the food, and I tried many things that I’d never eaten before.
I went back to New Orleans several more times for meetings, and one dish I always sampled whenever I saw it on the menu was Red Beans and Rice, which I came to realize was one of those dishes that every Louisiana cook makes just a little differently.
I already shared some Low-Carb Menus for Valentine’s Day, but if you didn’t pick one yet I think this pot roast would be a hit with Valentines who love mushrooms.
Lately I’ve been finding quite a few low-carb products that end up being winners, so I’ll be featuring some of them over the next little while! And this week I’m in sunny Palm Springs hanging out with some girlfriends, so obviously there’s not much blog cooking going on and it seemed like a good time to tell you about these these tasty protein bars.
Yes, I do have some good recipes for cookies and even a few cakes and cheesecakes, but not really anything you’d make as a special treat for Valentine’s Day. And I am well aware that for some people chocolate is a MUST for Valentine’s Day.
