Cowboy Caviar – Lucky Black-Eyed-Peas

  • 1 can black-eyed-peas
  • 2 small ears of sweet corn — or about 1/2 can of corn
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 large, ripe tomato
  • 1 avocado
  • juice from 1/2 lime — about 1 tbsp
  • 2 Tablespoons of fresh cilantro
  • granulated garlic
  • salt

Happy new year! I hope you welcomed it in the best way. This year I vowed many new things, which I’ve shockingly been keeping up with – more or less.

It’s easier to start anew when I feel genuinely refreshed. Before New Year’s, I actually ventured back home to the deep south, and brought back a classic recipe to share. As it happens, not only is it fresh and aligned with healthy goals, but it also brings in great luck. The main component, Black-eyed-peas, are esteemed to garner good fortune and health when eaten on New Year’s Day (or in the first week…or month…), so I couldn’t resist making this.

dip in!

While visiting home, I also ventured to Austin with my boyfriend. It was bizarre being back for the first time after six months, but it still has just as warm a glow. Literally. We sprawled on the grass in 70 degree weather, crazy!
