    As my husband was telling me how much he liked this new dish, I told him that, I realized after the fact I had messed it up & used 1/2 T instead 1/2 t of Thyme. He told me I needed to change it on the website! Well there you have it. Oh and fyi, I used canned BLK Eyed Peas. Really tasty, ThankYou - 8/27/08
