    Default Black Eyed Peas and greens.


    Seeing as this is the first day of the new year I thought a pot of
    black eyed peas with some greens would be a great idea.

    Peas, greens and a little Prosecco, mmm great start to the new year.

    I decided to cook the greens in some of the liquid from cooking the
    peas and they turned out really, really good.

    Photos etc...on my blog if you are interested.

    I didn't cook my black eyed peas yesterday... we ate leftovers
    instead. I should go to my butcher and get one of his wonderful ham
    hocks to cook with them.

    I looked at Prosecco when I was buying champagne, but it's sweet isn't
    it? I didn't have the nerve to give it a try, because I don't like
    sweet sparkling wines - like Asti. Maybe I'll try it before
    Valentine's Day.

    Not all prosecco is sweet, some are more dry. "moscato" types tends to
    be the sweeter ones.

    Thanks! I thought Asti was made from moscato. Which prosecco would
    you recommend as the drier type? I had no idea what I was looking
    at... and I didn't see a designation, like "brute".

    I sometimes see "brut" listed on the bottle, but not always. I found a
    deliciously-balanced prosecco to be Riondo Gato Nero. Just a touch
    sweet, wonderfully rounded flavors (God, I sound like a wine critic).
    Can be had on sale for maybe $11-12.

    Hope you find something you like,
    Kris

    Guess I need to do some "research". LOL! I can do that.

    (a) Asti is made from bricks, wood and mortar, mostly. It's a village ...
    (b) If you see "brute" on a bottle of Champagne or Prosecco, you've been
    had.

    Otherwise, google for "Prosecco brut". I don't know what is available in the
    USA.

    Cheers,
