Savoury Peas.

Thursday 4th August 2011

I made this for my son, Zephyrus, as a starter a while ago. He doesn’t usually have a starter with his meals but, if I remember correctly, the main meal was rather lacking in veg.

I learnt this dish from my mum. All through my youth this was prevalent at every family party. Along with a big bowl of buttered new potatoes & a sausage plait. It was a good veg option & and an alternative to salad. Sometimes it would be accompanied by a bowl of sweetcorn. A match made in heaven, peas & sweetcorn.

When I moved to Spain I noticed that they too had a similar dish, but rather than a side dish it was served as a starter. They sometimes put boiled potatoes with it to bulk it out.

Zephy sat up the breakfast table in the kitchen & ate his starter while I finished the washing up. 🙂

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
