Creamy Mushy Peas

Now I love peas, they are my favorite vege. When I was at Bermagui (Australia) last week we had lunch at a restaurant called “Octopii”. My niece Donna and I had ‘Fish Pot Pie’ and with this pie was mashed potato and this creamy mushy peas. It was delicious and I made it with our shepard’s pie last night. Mine was a little more liquid than theirs but I think I over cooked the peas. You really should make sure you boil the water first then add the peas for only 3 min and no longer. Next time I do it I think I would roll them out on a paper towel to get as much of the water off the peas as I could.

Anyway here is the recipe. Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients
Serves: 4

345g frozen peas
4 tablespoons cream
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions
Preparation:5min › Cook:10min › Ready in:15min

Bring a shallow pot of lightly salted water to the boil over medium high heat. Add peas and cook for 3 minutes or until tender.
Drain peas and transfer to a blender or large food processor. Add cream, butter, salt and pepper and process until blended but still thick with small pieces of peas. Adjust seasonings to taste, and serve immediately.

Very simple and easy.

Poem Friday – Just a simple Thing – 07/10/2015

IMG_1334 (5)

The other day a friend said, you have not done a ‘Poem Friday’ for some time
Well, I replied there has been nothing to inspire me to make a rhyme

Then just this morning after making my bed
I walked from the room and a good feeling came to my head

I love my colorful duvet cover that was given to me
By my Niece and her wife, the bedcover in the picture you can see

Its bright, its beachy, warm and its so comfy, so right
Especially when I have to sleep on the couch cause my man snores at night

I know its not words that have that great emotional and a passionate ring
But its just all about what makes your heart feel happy, just a simple thing.
