young peas (generic LeSueur)
Funny story. They changed the labelling in Canada a long time ago to "Le Sieur" because in French "sueur" means sweat so basically you're eating sweaty peas in the States. :D

Frozen peas do "sweat" as they are thawed, but so does all frozen things.
And "sweat" is a culinary technique for low heat in the skillet for many vegetables.
It brings out the natural sugars, evaporates excess moisture, and concentrates that flavour.

Karen, if I may correct your spelling, in the States, we're eating "sweety" peas, regardless of the label, please don't take away the one green thing Mark likes ;)

Now with a nod towards England, "mushy peas" are a different thing, and are not petite, but mature marrowfat peas. Nor are they as mushy as one might assume by the name.
Unexpected delicious they are, ask Dotty or any trusted advisor/mod here from across the pond,,,
Arrgh, it's in vain. You guys won't try them.

Clearly you have never been to Tortuga.
Uh, me neither, but that's nowhere near England.

I'm not an advisor nor am I a mod as you all know. nor am I from across the pond but I am often referred to as being from the other side of the tracks and can attest to "mushy peas" being delicious (y)

Spaghetti using cream of mushroom soup as the sauce
Garlic bread

Prime rib of hummingbird
Tempura fried gnat's eyelashes
one single English pea, quartered

Which is my way of saying I'm fasting for a blood test tomorrow (not COVID related, btw),
My real dinner is water flavoured with black coffee.
They say that's ok.

So whatever you guys are having tonight, enjoy it! (y)

Hello Thomas!
To sort of flip what you said, I think anything interesting to eat is special (y)
Curry is a bit of mystery to me, there are so many variations...
which is :cool:
McDonalds Big Mac for the hubby and Cheeseburger and fries for me. I haven't been to the drive through for years.
