ChocolateBet: Janury 4, 2010

Chocolate of the Day:
1 serving
Blue Frog Chocolates
Monday's Fare - NOLA Red Beans & Rice
Very Good
Weight: 1 oz. (28.3 g.)/ 6 oz. (170 g.) (estim.) in total package
Calories: 145 calories (estimate)
Cost: $6.00 (plus any shipping, handling)
Purchased from: Blue Frog Chocolates, in New Orleans, LA

Lunch today started with a healthy portion of these chocolate legumes (Milkies - "lentils") and rice (chocolate-covered sunflower seeds). According to Wikipedia, eating red beans and rice on Mondays "is an old custom from the time when ham was a Sunday meal and Monday was washday. A pot of beans" (maybe with a little leftover ham from the previous day) "could sit on the stove and simmer while the women were busy scrubbing clothes."
