Happy Mother’s Day, ladies. Whether you are a future mother, mother, grandmother, great grandmother or any other lady out there taking on a role of nurturing and protecting, this is for you.
Mothers wear many hats, and one of my favorite ones is making sure I’m providing good meals for my family. And even though I will likely get the day off on Sunday, I want to make sure they have something yummy to serve at lunch with all the other amazing dishes.
We love peas at our house. Their bright color and flavor really bring springtime to the table. For this recipe, I use fresh peas, because I like the crisp texture you don’t really get with a frozen or canned pea.
While the bacon is frying, heat water in a large pot until boiling. Once at a boil, add in the fresh peas and let them boil for a minute or so. You only want them to soften a bit. Then flash cool them by placing them in a strainer in a bowl of water and ice. They will be cool in about five minutes.
This is a great make ahead dish. And with all of the vibrant colors, it will bring a smile to any meal. It’s also a great opportunity for the kids to get in the kitchen and whip something up for dear old mom. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
