Peak 2 Pique

I began to dabble in vegetarianism about the same time as the Vietnam War. During that time there was a slogan: “Give Peas a Chance.” As a new vegetarian, I thought that was a clever way to use Peas, as a metaphor for Peace.

Since December is the month in which we hear another slogan: “Peace on Earth, Good Will to All,” I thought I would feature Peas in recipes as an reprise of the “Give Peas a Chance” slogan, since we are once again at war, this time in Iraq.

Gandhi is given credit for the expression: “There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.” Peace needs a chance to express itself and featuring “peas” in my blog will be my culinary tribute to the importance of peace.

Since I have yet to make any recipes with peas, you will have to wait until the next blog to see if I can really pull this one off. Maybe I will call the main article The “Peasful” Palate.

In the meantime, I will shop for English peas, snow peas, and snap peas to see what I can create in the kitchen for the December blog. If not, the blog will be a surprise to you and me!
