Happy New Year!

And have you had your Hoppin' John, yet?

I fixed mine last night in the 1 quart crock pot.  1 cup of black eyed peas that I soaked all day.  A can of chicken broth.  A slice of chopped up onion.  A spoonful of bacon fat (or you could use some ham base or a bit of ham for flavoring).  A couple of good shakes of hot pepper flakes.  A bit of salt.  Cook for a couple of hours (there is no setting on the little crockpot, you go at the speed it says it wants to go at :) and then add about a half cup of rice, I always use instant and used instant brown rice this time.
You have better luck for the year if it is the first thing you eat. So I had a spoonful this morning before breakfast.  It doesn't hurt to cover all of your bases!'_John
