Peas (Part 1: Recipe & Prep)

The poll results came in…Abigail’s first veggie will be peas (I’m actually quite happy about the results being that I only had peas and carrots in our house – your votes saved me a grocery run!).

The poll broke down like this:

  1. Peas – 37.5%
  2. Sweet Potatoes – 25%
  3. Carrots – 18.75%
  4. Other – 18.75%
  5. Brussel Sprouts – 0% (no love? haha)

Thanks for participating!

Moving on…Peas will be broken down into 2 sections: Recipe & Prep, and Testing (aka – Eating!).  The reason for this is simple – Abigail is napping and hasn’t had a chance to try the peas yet!

That being said, Peas were a cinch to make.  All you need are some frozen peas, water, a steamer and a blender.  Here’s the recipe (if you have a hard time reading it or have any questions, let me know!):

Easy Peas-y Recipe (pun intended!)

Abigail was very excited about the process (until the blender totally freaked her out).

See below for more pictures of the actual process and stay tuned for Part 2: Testing!

From the looks of it, I think she’s excited (or at least very curious)

Oh, for me? Thanks Mom!

Up next: TBD
