According to Creole custom, red beans and rice and laundry were always done
on Mondays. This dish takes 4 hours to cook - time enough to get the
laundry done.

In a large pan, place beans with water to cover and cook to a boil. Add all
ingredients except salt and rice. Lower heat and simmer for 4 hours or
until tender. Remove from heat and remove bay leaves. Add salt to taste.
Serve over hot cooked rice.
