Crock Pot Red Beans and Rice

Glenn talks fondly of his years spent growing up in Slidell, Louisiana. Mostly it's about the crazy things he did as a kid, but also he misses the red beans and rice served in the South.

I remember as a child always having homemade chicken noodles at Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, but I didn't realize it was a "family tradition" until Dad had mentioned it on Christmas a few years ago. I guess, as a kid, you sort of just take things for granted and don't really think much about them.... Continue Reading →
