01.01.08: Black-eyed peas and greens

Black-eyed peas for good luck and greens for money: we didn't dare forgo the superstitious New Year's meal. The peas were pepped up with bourbon and maple syrup, adapted from Joshua Ploeg's vegan adventure Something Delicious This Way Comes. The greens got a few quick shakes of liquid smoke before being boiled to pieces with a chopped onion. On the side: fennel, watercress and pear salad from Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries.

HE SAYS: Tasty!
SHE SAYS: Greens yummy, avoided smoke overkill. Salad was a nice palate cleanser. Beans were sweeeet.
