I'm making me some blackeyed beans.

Any suggestions as to what to DO with them when they're finished?

Oh, keep in mind - I have zero vegetables in the house, other than maybe some canned tomatoes.

Also please keep in mind - I am an awful cook and managed to make a nice pot fulla crunchy beans my last go round. My idea of "exotic seasoning" is salt and pepper.

if you search all recipes (the site) for black eyed peas you may come up with some ideas. tomatoes seem like a common ingredient, as is such things like pork products and onions. if you have some bullion cubes or powder, or stock to add in that would be helpful.. even dehydrated onion (flakes) or what not.
you MUST have SOME spices around there..

i'd do canned tomatoes, a bit of red pepper flakes... garlic... onion if i had any... chicken or ham stock... bacon if i had it.

Oh, we have all sorts of spices, I just don't know how to USE them. Yes, yes, take off lid, shake, yes yes. I mean, what spice does what. I try to figure it out by sniffing, but I think my sniffer is broken.

I put in some garlic salt and some dehydrated onion flakes so far, as well as some hot pepper flakes.

I so wish we had bacon!

you can always pull off a little bit of thecooking liquid (and later the beans when they become.. edible) maybe 1/4 cup or less and add a small amount of spice that you're curious about into that, mix. taste. nuke in the micro for a minute. stir. taste. decide if you like the way it changed or not. try adding a teeny bit to the main pot if you liked the change.. but just a teeny bit. taste often and mess with it often to see if you like where its going.
