    Southwestern blackeyed peas

    Blackeye peas, onion, tomato, garlic, cilantro, pepper sauce, jalepeno. Not to bad, but you could make it better by adding salt and plenty of ham chunks.

    At the risk of losing my mancard, I'd like to ask a question. Does anyone on here use a breadmaker? I bought one the other day and we're giving it the maiden run tonight. About 2 hours into the 3 hour process and I think I am an absolute failure... It's not looking anything like bread yet...

    Details on how to implement a freezer beef program?
