I really have been so busy I can’t seem to feel “caught up”, but I won’t bore you will all that shit – it’s a good thing! As far as these little pretties, yep – I’m representin‘ the South. Black eyed peas and cornbread.
Although I’m pretty passionate about my food and always thinking of new ways to invent or reinvent recipes, sometimes the perspective from other people help to get me thinking outside the box. Especially when I’m tired and feel as if I can’t be creative another damn minute.
I was talking to my childhood best friend, Kelly, on the phone a few days ago; keep in mind that this girl does not like to cook, but she’s a mother of 3 young boys (and a wife) so she forces herself to do it anyway. I was telling her about how I wanted to do something with black eyed peas, something different like refried beans, etc. and it didn’t even take her but one second, and she said “Just put refried black eyed peas on cornbread…Oh, and make sure to put jalapenos in it”.
