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

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

  4. 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.

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