OK, I have been remiss. I haven't visited this blog lately because LIFE keeps getting the the way.
Just got an email from someone who said my dear husband is on the radio right now telling people to visit my blog for Thanksgiving recipes. That's fine. In fact, that's awesome. Enjoy! Only problem is, the recipe that started all this interest isn't yet on my blog. Shame on me.
So, for everyone who asked, here's my recipe for PEAS ROCKEFELLER. They are simple and simply divine! Mine are already made and in the fridge to be heated up tomorrow. You can seriously throw this together in minutes and your family will RAVE!
1 stick of butter
1 tbsp of olive oil
2 tbsp chopped garlic
4 cans of petit pois peas (reserve 1 can's liquid)
herbs de provence
Melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the garlice and saute till you can smell the nutty garlic flavor. DON'T BROWN THE GARLIC - it will turn bitter. Now add all the peas at once. Add herbs de provence - app. a tblsp. Stir them around. When they start to simmer, add several (your taste) dashes of Peychaud bitters. Add breadcrumbs and pea liquid. Stir. Allow it all to simmer to thicken the sauce. Done!
My kids call these 'fancy peas.' I call them 'easy peasy.'
