Creamed Peas


                  I have an amazing quick and easy side dish for the holidays or really any day.
                  I adore peas, I find them very comforting and nostaglic. When I was a little
                  girl. I would request peas to go with most of the meals my mom made. These
                  are so creamy and simple. A perfect dish to go with anything your serving.

                                                                  1 bag frozen peas
                                                                  1 1/2 cups frozen pearl onions
                                                                  3 ounces cream cheese
                                                                  2 tablespoons heavy cream
                                                                  1 cup chicken broth
                                                                  1 tablespoon butter
                                                                  1 tablespoon flour
                                                                  1 teaspoon garlic powder
                                                                  1 teaspoon onion powder
                                                                  salt and pepper

                   1) In a large skillet melt butter and add flour. Cook and whisk for 1 minute.
                   Add chicken broth and whisk, then add pearl onions and peas. Cook until
                   cooked through. Add cream cheese and spices and stir until cream cheese is
                   melted and then add heavy cream. Mix together and enjoy.

  3. I just had peas last Saturday night with some beef stroganoff, and I love peas! I must get it from my dad, but my husband is not super in to them, so when I make them I just get to eat more! :) These looks super tasty.
