Eating around here

Just a quick post for today..letting you see what we have been eating lately..

One of my favorite meals is red beans with andouille .....I like mine with potato salad and Bryan likes his with rice.  Either way, it is a winning meal......I soak the beans overnight and cook them with bay leaves and meat..

                                          then I saute andouille and onions, celery, and peppers .

                                            and add this to the beans after they are cooked

I like doing it this way better than cooking them all together but you can do either one....but, trust me..this way is the best..LOL

one pot supper
Now to set my table.I thought these dishes looked pretty with the food and the zinnias...and needed to serve one more meal from them before I sent them off to the thrift store...I only had two..and I needed the room...but they were pretty while it lasted...
our table
Candlelight always makes supper seem more special...even on a regular Monday night...
always add candles and flowers
red beans and andouille w/ potato salad
I think it turned out good..the food and the table setting...and the company was really husband... Make your supper special tonight. it doesn't take much effort and it pays off by setting the tone for conversation and a little time shared with someone you love...I am so glad I have someone to share meals with... I am glad you stopped by our table tonight and shared a moment with time, pull up a chair and we'll fix you a bowl...we had plenty.


  1. I want that recipe! It looks SO good. And you set the perfect table. Wish we could have been there :)

  2. Now that is one good looking pot of red beans and sausage! And I love the idea of eating them with potato salad. Yum! And your table setting is so pretty. I wouldn't take those dishes to the thrift store, just yet. :)
