    I have been all over the world and sampled many a fine food...but man, sometimes, good ole red beans and rice done right is just unbeatable!

    That is all.

    True that. I'm starving and I have 23 minutes to shopping and get back before the game starts.
    I'm probably going to grab way too much junk. I'm glad I have something of a list.

    Very true. Throw in a little sausage and I could eat that stuff for days. Too bad it packs the pounds on me.

    Yeah, Pizza is the staff of life but it is hell on the weight if you dont watch it.

    Best Pizza chain on earth Double Daves.

    Best single shop, Valentino's San Marcos Texas.

    Feel free to disagree, but I will fart in your general direction.

    I've had some mad wicked pizza, in off all places - Toronto.

    I also had some pizza in Italy. When I was done our host was pissed at me for eating the pizza AND the plate it was served in. :supergrin:

    I don't know what you've been eatin' but, if it doesn't have a whole bunch of Andouille sausage in it, it ain't RB&R ... really.

    My red beans and rice always has smoked sausage; what's the point otherwise? The meat gives a lot of seasoning. The best smoked sausage is the Country Pleasing brand from Flowood, Ms. The hot is great but the regular is really good too for those who prefer less spice. Southern Gal prolly knows this place, it's on Hwy 49 near Donna's Produce #6 on the other side of the highway. The sausage is awesome and the stuffed mushrooms and pan sausage is to die for!

    There is a little Amish gorcery near here that makes up and packages their own Mexican Rice Mix, Red Beans and Rice Mix and a killer Seasoned Long Grain and Brown Rice Mix. They come in little plastic deli tubs and they practically give them away. I like to make them up, divide them up into individual servings and take them to work. The Long Grain and Brown Rice mix is great with leftover chicken and the others are flavorful enough to have with sausage. Give me some good dark rye rolls with them and I am in heaven.

    Red beans and rice at 3 A.M. in Nawleans was sooooooo good on our honeymoon in 93, the year of the floods. A few hurricanes and wow, I have tried to do the dish at home, but always screw it up, lol. I mean I could burn water! But seriously, someone bring some to us in K.C. and we'll gladly thaw out a smoked pork butt and throw down some BBQ in this -35 degree weather and we'll all be warm. OK the bourbon won't hurt either.

    Only had one real experience with RBAR but the stuff at Popeyes is like crack to me. I've been known to do u-turns in traffic to hit the place.

    The Ladies at the Old Market in Charleston, SC mix all the spices, rice and beans and pack it in plastic bags. All you have to do is add meat. I use sausage and a ham hock. My wife also likes the sweetgrass baskets they make.
