Life is a special occasion

Beer Tasting

Prefer a good pint of beer to a glass of wine? Host your own tasting party. Southern Living has a the blueprints to organize the perfect beer tasting. Invite your friends over with instructions to bring a few six-packs of their favorite limited edition beer. All you need are some beer glasses, like the Ikea's MJÖD Beer glasses priced at $6.99 for a 6 pack, a few yummy snacks like Chili-Roasted Black Eyed Peas, a bottle opener and you're all set!

Turn canned chickpeas or black-eyed peas into a unique and affordable party snack. Simply toss them in olive oil with a few seasonings and roast until crisp. The key is to bake the beans as long as possible without letting them burn. This will dry them out, making them extra-crunchy like nuts.

Chili-Roasted Black Eyed Peas
2 (15.8-oz.) cans black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 425°. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Transfer mixture to a lightly greased 17- x 12-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until crispy and dry, stirring every 10 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes.
