Plenty of Peas!

     One thing I’m learning about planting a big garden is that along with it comes a big harvest!  A couple of days ago, I harvested about 5- one-gallon bags worth of sugar snap peas.  And, there’s still more on the way –yikes!!!   

     It’s a good thing that these are one of the favorite snacks of my kids.  They love to eat them fresh off the vine — and they go fast!   But, with a harvest like this, and many more still growing on the vine, I think they”re soon going to experience what it feels like to have “too much of a good thing”, so I’ve been busily scouring the internet for different recipes and ways to use them, like freezing, roasting, adding to soups, salads, stir-frys, and even home-made dog food.

     My favorite way to eat them so far?  Seasoned and baked.  I simply coat the peas with a little olive oil, sea salt, and a packet of dry Italian dressing mix, and pop them into a 375 degree oven for about half an hour.  They are yummy! 

     I love being able to cook with seasonal, fresh, organic produce from my garden, and this year’s big planting has given me plenty to work with!
