I'm gettin' winded going up and down the stairs again, which means it's time to add some Iron. It's a HUNDRED degrees out today, so heavy cooking is not on my to-do list.
Here's what's in my crock-pot now:
1 lb dried black eyed peas
2 cups homemade chicken broth
4 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes with chilis
2 tablespoons ground cumin
5 tablespoons sorghum
1 small white onion, diced
1 tablespoon chopped dried garlic or 3 tablespoons fresh
Both the black eyed peas and the sorghum are high in iron, so this should give me a boost. It's grill night (again...no cooking) and a side of potato chips with my brat just didn't sound nearly as good as a plate full of gooey lucky sweet and spicy black eyed peas. Happy!
