This one is for Joey. And it was supposed to go up tomorrow. So no post tomorrow. Probably.
ANYWAY, Joey said she can’t imagine peas + cheese, so I said I’d post a couple examples.
The first one is … wait for it, Midwesterners …
- some kinda noodles, cooked
- canned tuna, drained, give the juice to the cat
- canned peas
- onion powder
- crushed soda crackers (saltine crackers, regular ol’ crackers)
- can of cream of mushroom soup
Now, of course, the cheese should be Velveeta or a generic florescent orange cheese-like substance, but I didn’t have any, so I used good cheese instead. If I had used perfectly broiled tuna steak, frozen or fresh peas, gently sauteed onions, home-made cream of mushroom soup, and home-made croutons or bread crumbs, I would have been de-aproned and forced to wear a big red F for Fancy-Schmancy sewn to my shirt. As it is, I barely squeaked by the Inspector General.
Mix it all together and bake it until it’s bubbly.
And the second is
Pretty flexible. This one had a base of lettuce, then frozen peas, mushrooms, celery, hard-boiled eggs, and a topping of mayonnaise mixed with about four kinds of cheese. I put pepper on mine, after serving.
So, if you think, “Peas and cheese just don’t go together in my mind,” you may not be from the American Midwest and/or you may be under 60 years old.
More power to ya.
