On My Mind: Peas

This morning, after hanging out the washing on the line (the sun is shining today - must make the absolute most of it so the washing machine started early!) I went for a wander through the veggie garden.

Truth be told I was feeling a bit peckish for something sweet and was on the hunt for strawberries but ended up finding a whole lot of peas ready for picking.

I loooove fresh peas.  I have many memories of helping my Nana shell them when I was a kid.  Well, actually, she would shell them, I would just eat them as she put them in the colander!  Nothing beats the taste of a just picked pea!

I think this lot will go into dinner tonight.  I'm thinking a white wine, prosciutto, parmesan and pea risotto.....mmmmmm!

This On My Mind feature is lead by Rhonda at Down-to-Earth that anyone with a blog can join. It opens the door to sharing our lives through photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships.


  1. I have the same memories with my Nan, shelling peas, at the time thought nothing of it, but what a lovely memory. And yes nothing beats the taste! We grow snowpeas, and it's a fight between myself, fiance & pug as to who eats the snowpeas off the vine and how many make it back to the ktichen!

  2. Dinner sounds wonderful! Enjoy those peas

  3. Fresh peas are amongst my favourite veg and rissotto well --- can I come over? :)

  4. ooh, sounds like a fabulous idea for dinner!!

  5. Those peas look wonderful. So fresh and green.
    I used to help my mom with the peas, when I still lived at my parents house. I loved getting them out of the shells.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Thanks all!
    It was a delicious dinner - no leftovers are a sure sign it was good!
