First Meal from the Garden.

Just a warning to my vegan friends... The following contains pictures of perfectly good pea pods cooked in a most non vegan friendly way!

Today we picked a nice basket of peas and then set about looking for a recipe for them. In the past, my peas ended up in stir fry, but I wanted to try something different. Google to the rescue!

I'm not usually a huge pea pod fan. I mean I like them in my stir fry, I'll eat them fresh straight out of the garden, but that's about it... Or it was until I tried them cooked this way. Here's the Rachael Ray recipe for Sugar Snap Peas with Onions and Bacon  from the Food Network web site. They were so good I had to go back for seconds!

The flavor of the pea, bacon and onion combination kind of reminds me of pea soup. I make mine from dried green and yellow peas with ham and vegetables.

We had the peas with garlic/honey chicken cooked on the grill and a baked potato.

LOL, I just realized that the cooked pea pods match my Kawasaki! (required motorcycle content)
