I made spaghetti tonight, and on a whim I decided to try a little adventure. I had some leftover cooked blackeyed peas. I used my stick blender to puree the beans to oblivion and poured the slurry into the sauce. I prepared my sauce as usual otherwise, except I added a little more seasonings. No one at the table noticed anything different, and the kids even exclaimed how delicious it was. I declare SUCCESS...since I could use up leftovers and sneak this past the extremely picky Mr. Snippity.
SHHHH...I'm still not telling him :)
