with roasted brussels sprouts. By the way, for those keeping score at home, I am within shouting distance of my old self, weight-wise. However, it's a loud shout, so I have re-joined Weight Watchers. One day in, here's what I am remembering from the last time I did it: you have to eat less. Gack!

or, fresh black-eyed peas. I simmered these in vegetable stock with bacon and onions, and we had them with roasted cauliflower. Delicious as they were, I expect them to be even better this afternoon when I have them with brown rice for lunch.
