Menu Plan Monday & Black-Eyed Pea Recipe

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

TuesdayChicken Tortilla Soup (didn’t have it last week after all)

Wednesday: Leftover Chicken Tortilla Soup

Thursday:  Italian Chicken Pasta
