Here’s a recipe for black eyed peas that’s really yummy :) It’s fast
 and simple enought to throw together in a few minutes. I use canned
 peas, because it’s quicker. It would work well with dried peas as
 well. I served it last night with cornbread and spinach. As a side
 dish, this recipe will serve 2 - 4 people.
