Bacon and dill give peas fancy appearance

December 21, 2005 - My wife likes peas more than I do. She can eat peas taken straight from the freezer and doused with boiling water and like them.

To me peas are best when used to add color to pasta, or part of a stew. When I want a vegetable side dish I go with broccoli, green beans, baked beans or carrots.

Fancy peas are a welcome side dish for any meal.
I came up with this dish as an alternative to my vegetable favorites.

Peas Please

4 slices bacon

1 onion, chopped

2 10 ounce packages frozen peas

1/2 cup water

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

1 tablespoon butter

Cook bacon five minutes over medium heat in a large, heavy skillet, or until brown. Spoon off all but a tablespoon of bacon grease. Add onion and cook until translucent, stirring frequently for four minutes.

Add peas, water, salt, pepper and half your dill. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally for five minutes or until peas are tender. Stir in butter and remaining dill. Serve.
