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

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m crazy about stew. I just love it on a cold wintery day, cooking low and slow and if it’s fogging over the windows as it slowly braises, even better. I think it adds to the whole ambiance! I have several fave stews but of all of them, this is hands down the one I crave the most. It’s my Beef Stew with Wine (or not) and Bacon.
