vakkotaur doesn't like black-eyed peas. He claims cooking them stinks up the house. He tried them once, several years ago, and gave them the prairie fling out the back door.
This year, I decided to try something a bit different. I cut up and browned some skinless pork sausage in a pot, then cut up a third of an onion or so and sauteed it in the grease, and added a can of black-eyed peas and a healthy dash of Tabasco to the pot and let it simmer for 30 minutes or so.
I liked it. What's surprising is that Paul liked it too, well enough to finish off the pot. I think I'll have to try that again next year.
