Black Eyed Peas and Broccoli

Greetings from South Louisiana!  It's beautiful here, still a bit of a chill in the air but very nice.  I am finally getting around to posting my dinner adventures from a few weeks ago.  Check out the You Tube video to the left and watch a snippet of what I cooked.  Acutally it started cooking a mushroom gravy.  Sauteeing some mushrooms with onions and other aromatics, adding a touch of flour, then adding some vegetable broth to make a gravy.  Then I realized that I didn't have enough to feed everyone so I found two bags of frozen black eyed peas to add to the mix, added more water, seasoned to taste and voila'!  I have a pressure cooker so the 45 minutes it would have taken to cook the peas only took 20.   Add some broccoli as a side dish with a salad and you got some good eatin' there. 

I also cooked spaghetti that night with Nate's meatless meatballs.  Sometimes I try to cook a lot in one night so I can take a day or two break from cooking. Check out the pics, Enjoy!
