Howard, First of all you need to learn how to spell "cinnamon" Some of the finest food in the whole world is in the French Quarter. For you to have Red Beans and Rice for dinner is a real commitment.

Jerry,

I returned from the French Quarter on December 29, so the Red Beans and Rice dish was created in our kitchen. It was quite good. The French Quarter has some fine restaurants, Sophia, for example. Sophia made a great meal for me. Muriel's was bad. Restaurants are hit and miss for me, but about half the time I get great meals.
