Sarcastic Monday

Nope.  Not weather.  My sarcasm is frozen - so I won't go there.  But I will go here:

Paula Deen's English Peas




  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 2 cans (14 1/2-ounces) English peas, drained


 Melt the butter in small pot and add the peas. Cook over medium heat until peas are warm.

    Due to the pea shortage in the year 2719 I had to try this exceptional recipe. I built a time machine to come back to the year 2007 in hopes of making this. Since humans have evolved to exist without hands, I realized I must kidnap someone with the brains to make this complicated thing. A young couple which I will call Sean and Kathleen were available, I chose them. After toiling for many hours with the thing you call "pot" they were able to melt butter and drain the peas. After all this, I ate those delish delicacy and headed back to my world. Thank you Paula

    Good, but this needed more salt.

    Something the recipe forgot to mention, please eat the peas while the dish is warm. Because I forgot to eat it when I finished cooking, the butter hardened. Feeling sad, I shoved it in the freezer. A few months passed by and I was cleaning my fridge, I found it and thought I'd give it a try while it's still frozen. Amazing! It was like eating peanut brittle, but healthier. Now I make this often for my family as a dessert.

    I tweaked this recipe a bit when I made it the other night. Doubled the butter and left out the peas. It was delicious!

    Paula comes through with another winner. Who would've thought of adding pot to peas and butter. I've always loved Paula's double chocolate, pot laced brownies, but this takes it to a new level. I do wish Paula would have been more specific about the amount of pot to add to the recipe, but I guess she leaves it to a person's individual taste. Thank you Paula. Lovin you, gal. Keep innovatin'.

God, this is hilarious! Should have been in the cookbook "How to Boil Water"... or "The Idiots Guide to Remedial Cooking".
