Help with Southern/Cajun/Creole-style stew?

I've got it in my head that I want to make a stew out of the black-eyed peas I'm making to go with some fried tomatoes and biscuits for dinner tonight. But I don't really know what I want to do.

Things I'm planning on using in it somehow (but don't have to):

Collard greens
Winter squash
A spice blend I have called "Cajun seasoning"
Bay leaves
Some sort of vinegar or possibly lemon juice
Vegetable broth

Advice? What other seasonings would you use? I'd really rather not go to the store, but I'm pretty well stocked. What should I do to make it more of a stew and not just extra-chunky soup? Maybe mash or puree some of the peas?
