Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

I've not made red beans and rice but this looks like the easiest recipe ever (with meat):

You make it sound like pot lucks are beneath you, But thanks for the clarification.

[quote=lauren1063]<p>I originally got this recipe from The Frugal Gourmet. Definitely a Cajun dish. </p>[/quote

I think that red beans are more cajun.   Mexico and Central/South American countries tend to lean more toward pinto and black beans.  But I think they all have rice and bean meals.

pot lucks are not "beneath me," I just don't care for them.

I should have said "I don't host potlucks." I often get invited to them. I don't mind when it's something like a departmental picnic where there is no real host.

Why not host? So when you have people over, no one brings any dishes?

I have a friend (she is Puerto Rican) who makes THE.BEST red beans and rice. She told me how to make them. I don't have it written down and I would rather she just bring them as they are a generation recipe and it is really good.

I have a dinner party next week and while the hostess is making a ton of stuff, we all are bringing either a dish or a dessert. Same with my parties, someone always brings something.

Have we not had this same conversation a gazillion times, Morty? Do you not remember the answers from last time around?
