It’s a new year and my husband, whose family is from the south, always has a giant bowl of black eyed peas for New Year’s day. Superstition says, that for every pea you eat, you will earn a dollar in the new year. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say with inflation for every pea you eat you’ll earn ten dollars in 2018☺️
I kept it simple this year and used frozen black eyed peas. They’re really easy to prepare. Just rinse the peas. Sauté some bacon, garlic, celery, onion, and jalapeño peppers in a little bit of oil. Add the black eyed peas, cover with chicken broth, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook on low heat for 45 minutes. That’s it!
In under an hour, you will be on your way to prosperity in 2018!
Be sure to eat plenty of black eyed peas for a prosperous new year!
