Well Helloooo there! Long time, no...see(?)! Life has been pretty crazy around here!! Since I've last been around, we've had an addition to the family! So we've been buz-y! Our little mister is now 5 1/2 months old, and a little busy body! Hoo! He wears me OUT!! He was born on May 13, 2010 at 10:36 pm (after 2 days of labor!!) and he weighed 7 lb. 12 oz and was 20 3/4" long. He is also the picture of perfection! I couldn't ask for more! I quit my job as a teacher at the local daycare to be a stay at home mom, and I LOVE my job at home! There is nothing more fufilling to me than taking care of my husband, baby and household each day!
I finally decided after almost six(!!) long months that it's time to re-enter the blogging world! I was unsure at first if I wanted to, blogging can be a time drain! But, I miss it. I also miss having one go to place for my recipes!! So, I'm back! I don't promise a recipe every.single.day. I don't promise weekends. I don't promise anything. But as I have a recipe to share, I'll share. My cooking style has changed some in the past few months, but I still have lots of recipes to share with you all, and I still like to experiment! So, without further adue...a new recipe!!
I know that pea salad is a recipe that should traditionally be shared and eaten in the summer. With temps in the 40's and 50's around here, you'd think it more appropriate that I share a recipe for something more warm-you-up-inside...not for something cold and, well, summery. However, hubs loves pea salad, and since I have to pack his lunchbox each morning, I like to pack things that he likes. Plus, it's easy. Me likes easy :) Oh, and this recipe came from my Grandma's cookbook, which is a compilation of recipes from all the ladies in my (very) small hometown. We're talking a population of like 300 here. But dang! Those small town ladies sure do know what they're doing in the kitchen (how redneck did that sound?!?!?!?).
You'll only need a few simple ingredients for this recipe...
- 1 bag frozen peas
- 1/3 cup Velveeta cheese, cubed
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
The directions are pretty easy too!
Put all the ingredients in a bowl. Stir until well combined. Chill until Serving.
