more than a feeling
new years eve hoppin john!
boil a shitload of black-eye peas (or use like 6 cans)
saute whole package of bacon until mostly crisp (there should be ALOT of fat melted out)
add diced onion, bell peppers and garlic to bacon and its fat
add veggies (fat and all) to big pot of prepared beans
add green onions
salt and pepper to taste
a couple tablespoons of good olive oil
and about another tablespoon or two of rice wine vinegar
pretty basic recipe. kinda peasant-y southern dish
good luck and prosperity throughout the new year!
i think most of this was consumed around 2 am when people were leaving, sobering up, and becoming newly ravenous again.
