Here is to a happy and healthy 2012! If you are superstitious and believe in getting in your greens and black eyed peas, I highly recommend this soup recipe from the Neely's. It has an unexpected spicy flavor and is so good! I omitted the bacon, subbed out the fresh swiss chard for a drained can of collard greens (because I like to make things easy like that...) and used black eyed peas.
The picture isn't the best so trust me on this one. It is also a great way to use up any leftover ham from Christmas. Bonus!
