Red Beans and Rice with Bison Andouille

Happy Fat Tuesday everyone! It's Mardi Gras, and out office is completely decorated with purple, green and gold streamers, balloons and beads! It's going to be a great day of food and fun here I can tell ya! Last night after dinner, I started working on the feast set for tonight...Classic Red Beans and Rice with Bison Andouille Sausage. It's going to be pretty easy to toss this together so I can focus on the Amish bread. I hope you all have a great Mardi Gras.
