On peas...

This evening, Izzy exclaimed, "These peas are juicy, mama. They are as juicy as pears." He then continuing spooning them up, unadorned and just simply delicious.

Could there possibly be a better reason for always keeping a package or two of frozen organic peas in the freezer? They always come through in a pinch. Nothing for dinner? Not to worry. You can always whip up something with frozen peas. Pasta with peas, corn and goat cheese....tuna casserole...rice and peas. You get the idea.

Plain or gussied up, peas make a great side dish too. The best part is, they are healthy, always available and cook up in a jiffy.
