The oxalis plant is actually sold in stores at the this time of year as a shamrock but it only resembles one. They are cute and inexpensive and as you see below can be transplanted into a teacup to make a cheery little window sill dweller. My mother loved this plant and I remmeber hers being big and beautiful and always blooming. She had a great window sill in the living room where she would have all her plants growing. She really had a green thumb!!
The Pea!!! Amber and I would fight over the mushy peas that we would get when we were in Dublin, Ireland. They seemed to just appear on appetizers or main courses in a tiny bowl and they were so good. Ken had a fetish for turnips when we were there so he let Amber and I battle it out for the mushy peas!!! With spring and summer coming, you could get fresh peas, which would be amazing!!! Here is our recipe for mushy peas:
10 oz. of frozen or fresh peas
1/4 cup heavy cream or half and half
1 Tbsp. butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring a shallow pot of water to boil and add a small amount of salt (1/2 tsp.). Add peas and bring back to a boil and cook for 1 min. Drain and immediately place into a blender or food processor. Add butter, cream, salt and pepper. Process until blended but leaving some peas in larger pieces. Adjust seasoning if needed and serve immediately.
