Luck in October
Even though I love the black-eyed peas we eat on New Year’s, I rarely think to have them on any other day of the year—which is ridiculous, because they’re delicious! When I was in the grocery store on Monday, I spotted some on the shelf and threw them into my cart for good measure. I’m glad I did, because last night, we cooked up a super-fast but super-delicious dinner:
Mmmmm…into a pot, I cooked 1/2 a chopped onion, 1/2 a chopped apple, and 2 chopped links of soy sausage (I like the tofurkey brand). Then, once that had all cooked down for about 10 minutes, I added a big handful of chopped kale and a can of (already-seasoned) black-eyed peas, plus half a can of water. Let it cook for about 15 minutes, and it was ready to eat!
This dinner took less than thirty minutes (suck it, Rachael Ray), and was really tasty. It was the perfect mix of savory and sweet. Plus, I feel luckier already.
Off to get work done this morning, and then we’re headed to an afternoon showing of 50/50. See ya!
