Default black eye peas

Thinking of trying something different this year. Anyone got a good recipe they care to share?

Here's what I'm planning but I could mix it up a little if someone has a good sounding one to me:

• 1 pound dried black-eyed peas
• 2 sausage links diced
• 1 cup chopped onion
• 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
• 2 ribs celery, diced
• salt and pepper to taste


Preparation:
1. Soak the black-eyed peas overnight. Drain.
2. In a small skillet, sauté the diced sausage with onion until onion is browned.
3. Combine sausage and onions with the drained peas and remaining ingredients; Add water just to cover. Simmer for about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours, or until tender, checking and adding a little more water if necessary. Taste and adjust seasonings.

I don't know how much of a standard it is but I have never heard of okra and black eye peas, much less eaten any.

My problem is that I like okra too much and always end up putting way more in mine. It turns into okra with a few peas on the side!

Dang blacksunshine you definitely want to eliminate me from the weight loss contest posting something like that don't you!

I used to dice up jalapenos to add to mine but with the young ones around the house, the food has gotten less spicy. I've also diced up red & green bell peppers when I have them. Pretty much everything I cook, I start with a recipe and customize it based on whats' available around the house and what sounds good to me at that moment.
