BUT I don't wanna! I've never like black-eyed peas, I would eat one and only one on New Years Day night to appease my Mom. So in place of black-eyed peas I'll be serving these (My Mama made them on Christmas night and they were amaze!) brussel sprouts tonight. I realize that black-eyed peas and brussel sprouts are not alike in way, shape or form, but just roll with it.
