Saturday: black-eyed pea soup

When I was growing up we always used to do black-eyed peas on New Years day. I don't always succeed, but I do try to keep doing this.

This year's version was really simple: into the pressure cooker went black-eyed peas, diced onion, diced bacon, chicken bouillon, bay leaf, clove, thyme. After 15 minutes at pressure I served the soup with thinly sliced red onions that I killed with red-wine vinegar, salt, and a bit of brown sugar.
