New Potatoes and Peas

For dinner tonight:  Weed Potatoes and Fresh Peas.

Boil the new potatoes for 10-15 minutes in salt water
Add peas and boil for another 5
Drain the water
Melt some butter over them while they're still hot
Pour some milk (or cream if you have it) on them to cool and garnish with chopped parsley

Some people add some flour to thicken the sauce, but who needs flour?

We finally got our rain.  A quarter inch yesterday, and half an inch today.  
I swear my potatoes grew six inches.

  1. Weed potatoes are the best, and your butter and milk sauce sounds so much easier than making a roux. Seeing your peas and lima beans doing so well, it makes me want to go ahead and plant some in the lettuce bed that I'll be emptying soon.
