I like peas

Whole-wheat pasta and chicken in a gruyere cheese sauce

Flipping through the issue of Cooking Light that arrived yesterday, I found a section that featured homey, baked dishes. I settled on this one and went about the preparations. Yes, those green things are peas. I hated peas as a kid, but I’ve come to discover that they’re not so bad. Thing is, most other people I know hate them. Funny how I like these odd little veggies, but can’t stand eggs, mushrooms, and other very popular foods. (Ick…even the smell of eggs grosses me out!) The peas added a nice spring-like flavor to balance the rich, melted cheese.

With all the food shots I’ve been dishing up lately, maybe it’s time to create a food blog.
