Black Eyes in 2007

Happy new year! I hope everyone rang it in safely and in the best ways. New years day I made black eyed peas for good luck. It might be too late to bring luck if you didn't eat them on day one, but they are really good so you should make them anyway. I did an easy simple version:

2 cans black eyed peas
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
some cut up ham
a bay leaf
a little dried oregano and parsley
a splash of chicken broth
a few cut up canned tomatoes

In a pot, saute the garlic and onions in some olive oil, add the black eyed peas (if they are canned be sure to drain them) and everything else. Cook for a while, until everything comes together. Use lots of fresh ground pepper and remove the bay leaf at some point. Serve with rice or cornbread. Salud!
