this looks delicious...I was just thinking this morning, I should have gotten my act together and made black eyed peas for dinner, I love the idea of it on New Year' you always make it???
I hope your New Year is all of these things and MUCH more...mmwwahh!!

dawn ~ it's so easy & yummy!
make it tomorrow night, maybe.

we love black-eyed peas & collard greens, so i usually make it for new years {and other times}.

winco has black eyed peas in bulk.
i sauteed a sweet vidalia onion/garlic/celery/carrot.
i used "better than bouillon" and 2 bunches of chopped collard greens.
also made buttermilk cornbread.

I think I will do this tomorrow..never too late..right??
how much better than bullion do I use?? last time i used WAY too much and it was not good..and how much water? or do you use stock??

catie said...

i'm so bad about measuring...
i sauteed the veggies,
then added the black-eyed peas,
then added boiling water,
then added the bouillon paste.
yes, you do have to be careful not to add too much. i think roughly one teaspoon to 8 oz of water, but no more. add a little & then taste the broth. ♥

These are the best looking black eyed peas I have ever seen! Too bad for me, my husband is not a fan : (

I love this dish but we can no longer eat this in my sodium free home. :( I must tell you that in the south we cook all of this on a ham bone and use no buillon.

This looks good, Catie! I made mine yesterday on the ham bone left from the Christmas ham that someone gave us for a gift...a 28lb. spiral sliced Smithfield ham! It was delish and made such delicious collards and blackeyed peas. May this bring us all a year full of good luck! xooxxo Gretchen

Yummo! Am I missing out on the black eyed peas thingy?? This looks so delish -- and corn bread too? Be still my tongue! :)
Love you Dolly!

No black eyed peas here...Is it ok that we had lentil soup instead?? :) Happy New Year my children say in their prayers at night..."keep you happy,healthy, safe and warm" the coming years. I"m glad we're friends. xoxo
