Counting down: 20 days until Christmas! If you’re needing some special recipes, check out my Recipe Index at the top of my home page.
My mother nearly always made black-eyed peas with snaps, so that’s one reason I like snaps so much. Also, they just taste good! So here’s and easy, healthy recipe for Black-Eyed Peas with Snaps & Ham:
- Pictsweet Field Peas with Snaps
- 1/3 package Hormel Natural Choice “Smoked Deli Ham” (No preservatives, 100% Natural)
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil (the fat in this recipe is healthier than fat from ham)
- Salt & Pepper
Cook peas & ham according to directions on the package of peas. I use about 1/3 package of ham. Let everyone add olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. This is so good and healthy.
Here’s our menu for this week:
Monday: Hormel Natural Choice Deli Ham sauteed in olive oil (2/3 pkg), Black-Eyed Peas, baby carrot sticks
