Re: Black eyed peas

My local supermarket puts them on sale before new year's day so every year I usually buy enough to last several months. At one pound for .79 cents, I bought about fifteen bags. So I expect I will be very lucky and very prosperous throughout the year. :-) But I wonder how long they will keep. Does anyone know?

I assume these peas are dried so I would of thought you will not need to buy any more next year or the year after lol

Happy new year

Ha! That's a good question. I had forgotten all about the luck aspect until I read your question. I just ran out of black eyed peas and bought more. It was lucky that I thought to take advantage of a good sale last December, but bad luck that I didn't buy enough to last the whole year. Next time I will buy at least 30 bags.

On balance, I'm doing well. I would like to think it's the result of living a good lifestyle and making wise decisions, but I have to admit there's always a little luck involved.
