🦃 Red beans and rice. 1/1/20

Wow, 2020! It sounds like a date from science fiction when we would be driving our cars through the skies, terrible diseases would have been cured, and robots would be making our dinners! But no, John and I are still making our own dinners every night although we did get a robot vacuum who can suck up the schmutz  from our floors while we are busy doing something else.

Tonight we actually had pinto beans with rice. Our son had told us this dish was lucky for New Year’s Day. In looking around the internet I found red beans and rice are served on Mondays in the southern U.S. and it is black-eyed peas that are served on New Year’s Day. It is a good thing that I am not superstitious!

Pinto beans and rice

I made a mirepoix of onions, celery, and red bell peppers and sautéed it until the onion was translucent. Then added some garlic and half of a Serrano pepper along with some spices.  We added the beans and some stock, chicken or vegetable work equally as well. I thickened it up with a little canned fat-free refried beans and served it over white rice.

P.S. I forgot to mention we used some turkey sausage in our dish.

P.P.S WW blue points = 6 (oil, turkey sausage, rice)
