This was very good! I steamed the kale greens and we put a few drops of lemon juice on it. I seasoned the black-eyed peas with a piece of salt pork, black pepper, a tiny bit of minced garlic, a small amount of chopped onion and sage.

Southern foods are very good but very filling to the stomach!

Your meal sounds delicious, Cat. And, yes, southern food can be very filling but, boy, is it ever good. There's nothing more comforting on a chilly day than a nice big bowl of white beans and a slab of cornbread slathered with butter.
