Black eyed peas may promise luck, but this dish delivers comfort. Its your go to side dish of 2012. A true taste of the south all wrapped up in an iron skillet.  Here, we spoof  the book The Hunger Games (read it!!!).  While you may be surprised at our talented performance, make no mistake, the real star of the show is the Mac & Cheese.  Make it now, thank us later.
