Cashew bars cooling on plate.

With the meatloaf I made a batch of black eyed peas and collard greens. Both recipes are from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. The collards recipe was a generic greens recipe (I think), and I've modified it to use olive oil (not butter). I also try to make it spicy, and although collards need lots of salt, I do try to go easy with the salt.
Southern Style Black Eyed Peas.
Anyway, both dishes were very good (I love collards) and there's plenty of each for tomorrow's dinner (and maybe lunch, too).

They turned out great, but they are not for the faint of heart. Not difficult to make, but the butter cream did take awhile (it's no small feat incorporating two sticks of butter into some sugar and egg whites. Thank goodness for electric mixers.) They are very rich (it's those two sticks of butter), I could only eat 1/2 of a pie, and that was pushing it (the kids couldn't finish their halves, which is saying something). I won't be making these very often.
The NYT article mentioned pumpkin spice flavored whoopie pies. Now, that's a recipe I'd like to get my hands on....

No photo. Too sad.
