I'm having this for lunch today:


"ZATARAIN'S Ready-to-Serve Complete Red Beans & Rice with Sausag

DESCRIPTION:Authentic Red Beans & Rice with Sausage Ready-to-Serve Complete Meal. We've added the meat. You just heat and eat! Ready in 60 seconds. Not just for Mondays anymore."


I'll let you know how it tastes. What does "Not just for Mondays anymore" mean? :shrug:

1. Red Beans and Rice is a Monday New Orleans tradition.
I've heard differing explanations as to why -- I've heard that Sunday dinner is a big production, so beans and rice is cheap and easy...or that Monday is wash day, and back when laundry was a whole-day affair it made sense to have a pot of beans and sausage simmering on the stove.

Although - I have no room to speak since I had this for dinner last evening . . .

5. Okay, I'm a few bites in. It's cheap ($2.00), it's easy to make (nuke in the pouch for 60 seconds),
and the taste? Meh. Two out of three ain't bad, I suppose.
