Red Beans & Rice


I could eat it everyday. Ironic because I did eat it everyday from as young as I can remember until I moved out. Literally, my mom would only make beans and rice and I complained every.single.day. I think that's what made me interested in culinary arts. The lack of choices at home.

& now I miss it (that's the ironic part). So every couple of months my mom makes my favorite: red beans & rice and ropa vieja (braised flank steak in tomato sauce). May not look so good but it is! Nothing like mom's cooking.

p.s. Have you heard Sade's new album? Love. My favorite is
The Moon & The Sky (LOVE!).
