A plea for a pea, please


I’m sure most of you are familiar with the British phenomenon of fish and chips. But you might not realize that there is a third part that completes the traditional dish: mushy peas. No fish and chips dinner is complete without them.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of the mushy peas. They tend to taste a little bitter. Perhaps they would be better with honey (then I could eat them with my knife!).

Peas peas everywhere! And all of them mushy.

The grocery stores here tend to not have a great variety of single items. They’ll have 2 kinds of peanut butter, not the 8 you would expect to see in the states. So….whilst (ha!) at the store last night, I was totally amazed by the pea selection!
