Yes I'm showing off my peas :) I'm so proud of them! My kids helped everyday pick off snails and check for other bugs. They looked and searched , taking the job serious, well it paid off big time, cause they did a wonderful job with the first harvest of peas!
These are Mammoth Sugar Peas, they taste sweet, As soon as we finish picking the last of these, which will be within the next week I plant to next set. In a good summer I can get 3 new plantings of peas. Beans would be in there as well, but for some reason an annoying squirrel will not leave them alone! Who knew furry creatures had a thing for veggies? Luckily it hasn't bothered anything else lately so the rest of my garden is growing fast, it's a jungle out there.
On with the peas. This is a simple side dish for peas, as I make it so often, throughout the year. This came from Allrecipes, it calls for frozen peas but you can do it with fresh.
Cook peas according to package directions. Set aside.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic in butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the peas and mushrooms, then season with sugar, salt, thyme and pepper. Reduce heat to low, and cook just until heated through.
