from Dirt To Dinner :: Peas, please


it's pea time!
one of my fondest childhood memories is running through my grampa's HUGE garden in the back of his house and picking peas with my sister and cousin. there was such a rush of excitement when finding the biggest, fattest pod on the plant--bursting with fat, sweet, amazingly green peas. i LOVED them. no, i would not eat them
cooked--as most children wouldn't, i suspect. but right out of the pod. . . yes. yes. yes.
i'm sad to say that i couldn't get 'round to the farmer's market in time to pick some up and post something yummy today. it's been a rough week around here! i'm choosing to cut myself some slack.
however, if i had been able to get those little beauties, i was all ready to make Green Pea Soup with Tarragon and Pea Sprouts. found on epicurious.com.

looks good, right? like my kids might actually eat it if i called like, "kermit's soup" or something. it could happen! and maybe still will. . .
anyway, head over to see what beth did with the peas, because it's sure to be amazing and she probably grew them herself! cause she rocks. also, on her blog are the FAQs if you wanna join up! next on the docket....STRAWBERRIES! we'll be posting on june 18th!

That looks like a darn good recipe! I may have to try it too. And it would use up more of my pea shoots!:)
