So, while making dinner last night, I grabbed my camera and started taking photos. I'm always envious of the blogs that I read and their beautiful dishes that they prepare and their clear photos. Also, in an attempt to be a more exciting blogger, I thought I'd share my recipe with you - AND have photos to boot!
Last night I made this amazing Black Eyed Pea stew from one of my favorite "stranger" blogs, Eat, Live, Run. I have "friend" blogs and "stranger" blogs - pretty self explanatory. Anyway. I have printed out several of her recipes (and need to print her recent chicken parm one) and was excited to try the first one. It was delicious and totally easy to make.
Somehow I missed the "serve with cornbread" note at the bottom when putting together my grocery list, so we ate it with some Ritz crackers I found in the pantry - not quite as good as the cornbread, but still pretty good. (I forget how yummy Ritz crackers are because I don't buy them often...but they're so good!)
Don't let the collards in the stew scare you. Husband thought he didn't like collards but he loved the soup - and didn't even know they were collards until I told him :) It was really good, healthy, just spicy enough, and very filling. Served with a yummy glass of wine and this made for a great Friday night. Put it on your list to try - you won't be disappointed!
