When I was at the store tonight and they were out of cans of black-eyed peas, I realized that I should have posted this recipe a few days ago so you’d have time to actually get the ingredients. Sorry.

Anyway, you have to have black-eyed peas for New Year’s, and you can get anyone to eat them with this recipe. Take it to a foozball party and I promise people will eat it. I serve it warm (just let it hum along in a baby crockpot) but my sister mashes the black-eyed peas and serves it cold like a bean dip. It is yummy either way.  And, for the record, it is Reflex-approved.

1 can Rotel
2 cans black-eyed peas, drained
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 c ketchup
1/2 tsp garlic salt

Mix all of the ingredients together in a small crockpot and let simmer til warm or bring to a boil in a saucepan and then turn the heat down to simmer for 20 minutes or so.  Eat with chips or crackers.

        1. If you can be an outfit snob, I can be a food snob. I bet you buy frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts, too.


        2. Not usually the frozen stuff. I do let the butcher do a lot of the work for me though, yes.

          Idk why you’re so cranky about the outfit stuff. You don’t ever have to propose to me, so it doesn’t affect you in any way. You just have a chip on your t-shirted shoulder.


        3. You don’t know the future.

          What if an evil villain is threatening to blow up the world if I don’t propose to you but you won’t do it because I’m in a nice comfortable hoodie and jeans?


        4. Ok, if the future of the rebel alliance depended on it, I would probably be the better person and grudgingly say yes — but I would milk it for some drama first and could you please have Will Smith use that forgetter thing on me so I don’t remember it later? Thanks.


        5. I just never imagined proposed to someone with short hair that eats beans out of a can. 🙂

          Seems a little too Brokeback Mountain


  1. Attending a NAMI meeting a few weeks ago, it was explained to me that parking was difficult because of the large number of people attending a lutefisk dinner elsewhere in the building, seriously. Apparently mental illness is far more prevalent than generally thought.
