To kick off the year I did my very first pot of BLACK EYED PEAS.
from Wikipedia "Eating black-eyed peas on New Year's Day is thought to bring prosperity." and I need lots of it :)
I called my dad for his advice and he told me to buy the dry beans in the bag and let them soak over night...
I used about 6 cups of chicken broth, onion, salt and pepper and let them simmer for about 6 hours..I had some right before midnight and some for breakfast the next morning..they were so good!!!
Bring it on 2011, I'm ready!!!
