So You Wanted Philosophy

Sorry to disappoint. Tonight's blog is about peas. These are humble veg and the ONLY veg that I buy frozen. There are some things that just can't be eaten without peas, fresh or otherwise. Grilled fish . . Atlantic Salmon tails with soy simply must be served with new potatoes slightly buttered or mashed potato and peas. Lamb . . . whether you marinate or not . . . simply goes with peas.

Apparently peas along with broccoli and cauliflower are the most disliked vegetables by the 2-12 age group, mainly because of the lack of digestive tolerance - hard to believe that your 2 year old knows best. Don't ever believe that your 2 year old doesn't know what they can and can't eat. But sweet, green, gently warmed, succulent little teeny weeny baby peas are heaven in the right combination. Crikey . . even the Thais put peas in thei red curry to sweeten it. If you grow them, they're fun to shell, if you're lazy like me . . buy the baby versions, not their tasteless older cousins, No water, in the micro for 3 minutes and perfecto!

I can't believe I blogged about peas.
