Meatless Monday: give peas a chance

 give peas a chance

I remember fondly shelling peas with my next door neighbour when I was a child. Back then everyone in our street had veggies growing in their back garden which usually meant a good supply of sweet fresh uncooked peas...Delicious!  I love peas but some may not...but I am here to ask you to give peas a chance and have included a few recipes to help you on your way to a Meatless Monday.

    1. Thanks Sangay, good to hear from you. Have a great year 2015

  2. My Valentina loves peas, we make a few different meals out of them... especially now that Valentina is a Vegetarian xox

    1. Good to hear, does she like quinoa? It's meant to be high in protein. We have 2 vegetarians here at our house.

  3. We always had a veggie patch when I was growing up. It would be so good if everyone could grow some veggies or if we had communal gardens in every suburb.


thanks for your input - i love comments
