This is a recipe I'm doing today. Haven't done a picture just yet.
Blackeyes on New Year's day is said to bring good luck for the year.

It certainly won't hurt.

Cool completely before pouring over bean mixture. Marinate at least 24

and bake them until crisp. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt in them if you desire.

I've seen this recipe before. Or something similar. Have never tried it.
I like black eyed peas, but this recipe doesn't sound appealing to me. I
also fail to see how it would be kid friendly. I ate black eyed peas as a
child, but I've never met another kid who would. In fact, here in the
Pacific Northwest, I've never met a person who would eat them, outside my
own family. There's just something about the texture of them that people
don't like.

Maybe Texas Kids are different. Often they will eat things at a party that
they otherwise won't touch.
It may not be kid-friendly to all kids but a lot of them seem to like it
down here.

Well, that could be. I remember passing through Texas while on vacation
when I was a kid. I ordered chili in a restaurant because I loved chili.
But it was so hot it brought tears to my eyes and I couldn't eat it. I kept
trying to tell my mom that it was too hot, but she was thinking temperature
and not spice. I finally told her to try it. Then she knew what I meant!
My dad then called the waitress over and said something like, "How could you
serve this to a little kid?" She just shrugged. So maybe Texas kids are
different. Black eyed peas are not a common food up north. Neither is
hominy.

I was raised on dried field peas, pinto beans, butterbeans, colards, turnip greens, potatoes, and corn bread. We would only have meat on sundays. White bread was only for sandwiches. My mom made bisquits or what we called whole cake which was actually just bisquit dough baked in a cast iron skillet like cornbread.

This sounds good, but what I'd always heard of as Texas caviar is a lot
simpler. Just mix a can of blackeyed peas with a can of Rotel chopped
tomatoes and peppers, It makes a great dip.

That's the East Texas (Hillbilly) version.
Those of us in the Metropolitian areas are a bit (but only a little bit)
more sophisticated.
Or, at least we we put on uppity airs. =
