lucky peas

Like many southerners, we always make a point to eat black eyed peas on New Years Day. After all, who couldn't use a little extra luck in the coming year? Here's todays version using what I had on hand.

New Year's Day BEP's

1. soak a bag of dried black eyed peas overnight
2. rinse and put in soup pot
3. cover with water and add two chicken bouillon cubes
4. add 4 slices applewood smoked bacon, a chopped purple onion
and a handful of cilantro
5. bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook until tender

Happy New Year!


  1. I got my black eyed peas in today. Lucky me.

    And cabbage as well (which was also traditional for us)for wealth :)

  2. Happy New Year, Shari.
    Keep the fun blogs coming for TEN.
    We all look forward to them.

  3. I love black eyed peas. I just discovered them last year. I use them in my salads or my bean burritos. But I do canned beans. I never did the soaking kind. That's just crazy! It's Goya, o-boya! for me :)
