I guess my meal is missing the corn bread. That looks really good.

Those are Florida Broadleaf Mustard Greens cooked with Purple Top Turnip Roots....So Mustard Greens with Turnip Roots! They are better served in a bowl with lots of pot-likker so you can kinda slurp them in


PS ....Pot-likker running off your chin is socially acceptable!!!

Mine doesn't look half as good, but I thought I'd post what I came up with. The greens need something for more flavor, maybe butter or lemon, and the black eyed peas DEFINITELY need more flavor (any suggestions will be appreciated). The cornbread is what happens when your daughter won't get you corn meal and you find a recipe on the internet that uses masa harina instead ~ tastes great, looks funny.

The beans just may need more salt and pepper. The greens - add a splash of apple cider vinegar to them!

Thank you!! The vinegar sounds like the best thought. The recipe had no pepper in it so you could be on to something.
