A Day For Me

I am not sure about your house but I am having been very busy for the last couple of months.  I am very glad that starting today I can get back to my normal routine. 

I have already gone to Curves this morning and the grocery store.  I have a huge crock pot full of Red Beans and Rice cooking for tonight and the house is clean.  This weekend is Homecoming a Allen High School so it will be busy so I think I will take today to get back into my room and play. 

I really need to get started on Kaela’s 8th grade album again.  I am off to play here is the recipe that I am using to make the Red, Beans & Rice.




1 pound red beans

7 cups water

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

3 celery stalks, chopped

3 garlic cloves, chopped or minced

2 cans Campbell's chicken broth

1-1/2 pounds sausage (I used Richards)

2 tablespoons Creole Seasoning (I use Tony's)

Hot cooked rice

Sort your beans taking out the halves or pieces and check for small rocks or pebbles.  Rinse the beans thoroughly and pour into crock pot.  Add water and chicken broth to beans.  Add your chopped vegetables. 

Slice the sausage into bite size pieces.  Add the sausage and the Creole Seasoning to the other ingredients in the crock pot.

I am going to add a cup of Minute Rice to the crock pot about an hour before serving.  But you can make the rice separately and put rice and beans over rice.

  Cook for 7 hours on High Setting.
