There’s one thing I’ve learnt to love, since becoming a mum.
They are a life saver. They are always there when I need them.
They go with anything.
They are full of vitamins and shizzle.
What am I talking about? I am talking about
I used to hate peas. Peas were a no go. I frigging hated them. Green bogies in my dinner, I used to pick them out of everything!
I have been converted however; I have made my peace (peas?) I changed my mind about Peas since Bubs started weaning.
I do make a lot of our meals from scratch but when you get back late from work, the last thing you need is to start whipping up something wholesome when you’re craving a dominos.
One day, as I was walking through the supermarket, it came to me. Or rather, I went down the frozen aisle.
Those green little pearls were gleaming at me next to the Yorkshire puddings.
At first, I was hesitant. Would she eat them? Would I? But I had to try. I was running out of options and I didn’t like giving her “beige” food or leaving out a major food group.
(I also discovered sweetcorn as well. In a tin. Brilliant. )
Back to the peas. They are ingenious. They literally go with whatever the hell you have left, and make it healthy.
Fish fingers and peas
Sausage and peas
Pasta pesto and peas
Curry? Chilli? Chuck in a few peas.
I feel infinitely better when Bubs has some veg and so a handful of these babies and my guilt disappears.
Best of all, they’re frozen. These babies don’t dry out or go mouldy. Just grab a handful out of the freezer, and BOOM
Peas are now my best friend. I may even admit to liking them myself.
Peas have changed my life, and they could change yours too.
