What's for dinner tonight...

We're having ham hocks and black eyed peas, thanks Sarah!!

I have made this quite a fw times and it is so yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy!!

1 bag dried black eyed peas
smoked ham hocks (I use 2-4, depending on the size)
8 cups water
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes
lots of S&P
3-4 cloves of garlic, chopped or minced
1/2 bag frozen okra

You can soak the beans overnight in water, but I prefer the faster method! Rinse the beans, and then boil them on the stove for 5 minutes. Add everything to a large crockpot except the okra and cook all day on low. About 30 minutes to an hour before serving, add the frozen okra and stir. When you are ready to eat, remove the ham hocks from the crock pot. Remove the skin and the bones and shred the meat. Return it to the pot and serve over rice, delicious!!
