encouraging kitchen-uational ethics, or, a fergin good soup: choose your pun

that makes this sound racier than it is. what i'm trying to say is that, while it's important to plan ahead on menus and shopping in order to get the most for your money, it's also important to keep a magpie's eye open on your shopping trip to see what's new, because what's new might be available for only a short time, and you should cook with it while you can.
most of the stores in town had fresh black eyed peas at the holidays, for example. it's a traditional dish in some american cultures at new years. why not cook something that's supposed to be good luck? this soup was easy, since i just had to thaw a pork and greens soup base that i made and froze the week before, then toss in a few peppers and the fresh peas-- and let simmer for half an hour.
