Creamed Peas & Pearl Onions

Creamed Peas & Pearl Onions

When I was a kid, either creamed peas or creamed pearl onions or a combination of both were on the menu now and then, especially at Grandma’s house. Honestly, I wonder if they were the ones that used to come in the box, frozen. They were often served with Salmon Loaf, so when I reworked Grandma’s Salmon Loaf recipe into Not Grandma’s Salmon Loaf, I thought I’d better address the Creamed Peas & Pearl Onions, too. They really do go so well together and the cream sauce serves as a sauce for the Salmon Loaf, too.

Beef Stew with Wine (or not) and Bacon

this really is the BEST stew - adapted from Cook's Illustrated, make it with wine or use substitutions

I love stew in the winter, whether made in the oven, on the stove or in a crock-pot whether made with potatoes or served over potatoes (or even noodles), whether with wine or without, or even with beer.  I can hardly wait for a lazy snowy day to make stew, and when winter is over, I always wish I would have made more.
