When The World is Cold

Crock Pot Black Eyed Peas with Smoked Turkey Necks
When it's awfully cold outside and there is nothing to be done about it, a slow-cooked pot of beans act as slow-simmering love in the house.  The best part is the ease of concocting these magical creations.  Sprigs of parsley, green onions, celery, carrots, jalapeno, stock, soaked beans and a turkey neck added to the vessel and 6 hours later a delicious hearty soup appears.  I took out the bones and shredded any meat, then mashed up the beans a bit in the pot to create the desired consistency.  
One bowl of this keeps you warm for hours.  This is great for lunch box meals and for freezing half for a lazy day.
