Foodie Fridays: New Potatoes and Peas in Cream

From Anissa's Kitchen

We have been having a bit of a cold spell for the last couple of days.  Just the kind of weather, in fact, that makes me crave comfort food -- like New Potatoes and Peas in Cream.  Warm, creamy, filling, easy to make and easy to eat, this dish is perfect for a chilly day.  Stir in some diced ham and turn it into a satisfying main dish, and if you feel the need for more flavor add some good quality mustard or even a sprinkling of tangy cheese like cheddar or gorgonzola.  I prefer to keep it simple, but however you choose to make this dish it will always bring comfort on a challenging day.

New Potatoes and Peas in Cream

1 lb. small new potatoes
1 tsp. salt
1 package (10 oz.) frozen peas
2/3 C. heavy cream
pepper to taste

Peel or rub off potato skins if desired.  Cook the potatoes with the salt in two cups of boiling water until almost tender.  Add the peas and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender.  Drain, add the cream and pepper, and heat through.  Serves 4 (or possibly 2 if you wish to indulge -- just try not to eat the whole thing at once unless absolutely necessary!).
