Monday in Louisiana!

In most cities, Monday is known as the dreaded day when the weekend has ended and the workweek has begun. In New Orleans, locals know they can always look forward to one very tasty Monday tradition – Red Beans and Rice. 
Mondays used to be the traditional “wash day” of the week. Traditionally, women of the house would put on a pot of red beans to cook all day while they tended to the laundry, since the meal required little hands-on attention. The beans were largely seasoned by the leftover hambone from the previous night’s dinner.
