Red beans, po' boys, gumbo, jambalaya, catfish, crawfish, and beignets are foods most Louisianians have grown up eating, but for nonnatives and visitors, these new words and tastes are a discovery upon their arrival in New Orleans, Lafayette, Shreveport, or Baton Rouge. In Today Is Monday in Louisiana, singer and songwriter Johnette Downing adapts a popular Louisiana song for everyone's enjoyment. Now, kids all over the country can "come and eat it up "

Told with delicious repetition, this chronological culinary journey takes readers through the days of the week, describing one Louisiana dish a day. On Monday there are red beans to eat and on Tuesday, po' boys. On Wednesday gumbo is served, and on it goes through Sunday, when New Orleans' favorite breakfast treat-beignets-are enjoyed with a warm cup of cafi1/2 au lait. The glossary at the end of the book explains the origins and ingredients of the dishes and includes even more new words, like okra, sassafras, and lagniappe. A recipe for red beans and rice is included, encouraging readers to begin their week the Louisiana way
