Black Eyed Peas

I have now lived in Texas for quite a while, but this year is the first time that I prepared the traditional southern first meal of the New Year... Black Eyed Peas.  Not having any experience with black eyed peas, I had to go searching for the right recipe. In the search I also found out it was important to include greens... usually collards.  

Black-Eyed Peas With Ham Hock and Collards

I found a great recipe that turned out to be an awesome find.  I didn't have collards, but I used Swiss Chard from my garden, and in my freezer I had a ham bone left from Christmas. Everything came together pretty nicely.  Our grandson, who is a picky eater, even cleaned his plate.  Doesn't get much better than that.
