Damn you, Thug!
I can cook and god knows I can fucking swear.
I'm going to be kicking myself for the rest of my life for not getting there first. It's an honest fact that I could never do what the Pioneer Woman does- she's way too wholesome (although her food surely isn't), but I sure as hell could have done what this Thug person (or persons, more likely) have done.
Aw well, it does look like a fine recipe, as may of his do. I'll be cooking black-eyed peas myself. But I won't be sauteing any goddamn kale. I'll be simmering my collards and mustards (and okay, maybe a few kale leaves too) in vegetable broth for a long time with onions and tomatoes. That's the way I do it. And I probably won't presoak my beans either. Black-eyed peas cook quick and the longer I can cook them with the spices, the better they'll taste.
In my opinion, anyway.
I didn't think of it first and that's the way it goes. Day late and a dollar short. Story of my damn life.
