Today, I’m talking about plain ole’ down home comfort food. That’s right no sugar talk today. Recently, I’ve been craving some good ole’ Creamed Peas & New Potatoes. This was one of my favorites when I grew up on the farm. My mom always raised her own garden fresh peas which made this dish even more spectacular. I can still remember her making me sit on the front porch and shell out peas and fussing at me, “Now Cindy Ann, make sure you pay attention to what you’re doing and don’t miss any”. I guess I did have the attention span of a “nat” back then, and I hated shelling out peas or breaking beans. I just wanted to saddle up my horse and go off into the woods for the day. What chores? I always hated it when my mom used my middle name, but it no doubt got my attention.
These days I live a busy life and really don’t have the time to raise my own peas. Therefore, I use frozen peas. They may not be fresh from the garden, but they’re still delicious in this dish. I just wanna tell ya that if you’ve never had Creamed Peas & New Potatoes, you don’t know what you’ve been missing. This is one of the easiest dishes to fix. It simply requires cooking some new potatoes and frozen peas, and making a real easy white sauce to go over them. You can serve these as a side or you can do what I do. Are you ready? I serve them over homemade Salmon Patties. I know….you think YUK…but let me tell ya’ don’t knock it until ya try it. Creamy white sauce over a Salmon Pattie. Well you serve them anyway you want to. You don’t have to eat Salmon Patties if you don’t wanna. Let me tell ya, after eating this dish, I promise you will feel very satisfied and full as a tick!
Okay, here’s how I made this easy dish…
