New Peas and Potatoes

We've definitely had enough rain to water our gardens in Utah this year. Our only concern is getting enough sunshine between rainstorms to help the plants grow. Luckily, the sun has been out enough to yield new red potatoes and peas locally so I made a summertime favorite this week - new peas and potatoes.

The dish is very easy to fix. You quarter and boil the new potatoes (leaving the skins on) and shell and boil the peas separately. While the peas and potatoes are boiling, make a white sauce out of milk, flour, salt, and butter. When the white sauce is thick and the potatoes and peas are ready, combine them together and serve them immediately. The resulting meal is light and absolutely delicious - perfect for a summer evening!
