Hoppin' johns

Last night I fixed Krip one of my favorite meals: southern fried chicken, rice and black-eyed peas. Lordy! was it yummy! He's come to lurve my chicken, as he should. Anyway, I decided to put some pazzazz into the black-eyed peas, so I crumpled up some bacon on top and added....Tabasco Sauce.

And I didn't tell him.

This is an addendum to my post from yesterday. Polly wanted to know what black-eyed peas were, so here is a picture just for him:

Made his eyes water without even trying.

I've always wondered, what exactly are black-eyed peas?

Also meant to ask if the Southern dinner was in honour of the premiere of The Dukes of Hazard.

You shoulda fixed that man a mess of greens, too. Nothing like greens with hot pepper vinegar and a little salt back pork just to take the 'good for you' value out of the meal!

Where did you find black-eyed peas? I find them slmost impossible to come by here in Blighty. I haven't had Hoppin' John for New Years Day in about 4 or 5 years...

James: Sainsbury. They're in cans, and I think under the Sainsbury label.
Are you an ex-pat by any chance?

I suppose technically I am an expat, although I've always been both a British and an American citizen...I've spent most of my life outside of the States (military and military brat), but I speak with an American accent.

I would consider myself a bit of a Georgia cracker...(without the redneck connotations, although I'm beginning to embrace my redneckhood just to piss off British hippies!)

James: I, too, am a military brat, born in the USA tho. My family roots are very deep in that Georgia clay though.

Whereabouts are your family from? I spent my teen years and my early 20s in Stone Mountain.

My city is home of the Masters. And James, look for "black-eye beans," that's what they call them here in the UK, but they're the same thing. Gotta educate the Brits on what are beans and what are peas.

Wish I could find some lima beans, baby lima's to be exact. Broad beans just don't cut it for me.

Ahh, I've spent about two weeks in the hospital at Fort Gordon in my late teens. Also spent a lost weekend on a road trip to Augusta once. :-)

Broad beans...eeeeyuck!
