For years Jack has been after me to make beans and rice on Mondays. He said it's a tradition among musicians because they blow their pay by Sunday and can't afford anything more by Monday. He may not have it exactly right, but maybe a little structure to the weekly menu isn't a bad thing. I can't always promise rice. Sometimes I like my beans with polenta, cornbread or biscuits. And since I'm a life-long vegetarian there won't be any meat. But we WILL have Monday beans.
