  1. I was going to make this recipe yesterday but didn't have the greens. I was happy to see that you did and you liked it! I'm lucky in that this time of year I can get fresh black eyed peas - the best of all! I really enjoy your blog and look forward to 2008. Happy New Year!

  2. Let me know if you end up trying it Mary Ann!
