Tonight I made the best Red Beans & Rice. I used up half of the red beans I have stored (I will definitely be replacing these in a few months), three cups of long grain rice, a smoked sausage from the freezer. I also threw in some frozen, chopped green peppers from my garden (I can't remember if they are 2008 or 09) and a couple of dried hot peppers (also from my garden, but definitely from this past summer). I seasoned it with fresh garlic, cumin, pepper, dried chipotle, and other spices from the seasonings cabinet. The dish was fabulous!
I ended up freezing a portion and I have enough for leftovers this week.
