    mightyro_cooking4u's Note:

    From The Black Family Reunion cookbook. While growing up, my grandmother, rhoda Weekes, was known among family and friends as the master of black-eyed peas and rice. You may think I'm exaggerating, but I can remember folks coming from throughout the tri-state area if they heard Mother was "cookin' up a pot." I'd watch her throw a bit of this and a dash of that into the kettle. It still warms my spirit to remember her creating her magical dish, while I kept her company in her big, beautiful kitchen. I'm no longer a meat-eater, so the following is my vegetarian version of Rhoda Weekes' black-eyed peas and rice.-Susan L. Taylor, Editor-in-Chief, Essence Magazine

      Wow, this was so good! I've had peas and rice before, but generally the bacon version, well, this definitely does not need bacon to be excellent! DH and I enjoyed this for supper (and then I had leftovers for office lunch, yum!!), I made it exactly as per recipe EXCEPT I had no black-eyed peas and had to use borlotti beans, sorry about that, basically it gave me a softer bean. But I WILL get the real McCoy for the next time! I do generally have in the pantry, didn't realise that I was out. This is such an easy meal to prepare for something so substantial and with so much flavour , I served this with French Peas for an excellent vegetarian supper! Thank you mightyro, very much enjoyed!!
