No recipe today, just a quick story and a product tip for ready-to-eat sugar snap peas.
My grandmother stood only 4'11" tall. Her body was small but came with a full-size sweet tooth so weight management was always a problem. As a child, I loved to sneak into her kitchen while the grown-ups visited in the living room. Right at the front of the top drawer next to the fridge, I knew, would be a bag of chips, usually chocolate but sometimes butterscotch, the bag torn open at the corner just enough to fit a couple of fingers.
Me, I keep bags of chips safely out of the way in sealed bags inside tins stored at the back of the pantry.
But this week, there in the door of my frig (fridge? keep reading) is a bag of sugar snap peas, prewashed and prestrung and full of crunch and freshness opened just enough to grab one or two. The sugar snap peas are a perfect snack after waaay too much holiday food -- and a sweet reminder of my grandmother. Many thanks to my dear friend Linda for the tip and my first bag of sugar snap peas!
FRIDGE vs FRIG My sister says I drive her crazy calling a reFRIGerator a frig. Sorry, 80K!
