Yes I recognize that there’s both a friendly and sinister connotation to the title of today’s post. The sinister one being that I’m procreating and that’s a very scary place to take a very happy little vegetable. I prefer to think of my rather forceful exclamation as a futuristic reference to when I live in a space pod with a nice hydroponics corner where I can grow things like peas. My favorites are snow peas but overall pease are pretty good across the board. From fresh off the vine (you can really taste the chrolophyll!) to smashed into a pulp as a side for fish & chips (not my preferred way of eating them) to crunchy and wasabi coated these tasty little guys are almost always welcome in my space dwelling!

We’re skipping a couple of the winter months and heading straight into Spring! March also happens to be the month where my birthday is located. Happy Silver Jubilee to Me! There are several uses for Blood Oranges in this menu due to the fact that I have recently found a good place to procure them. Perhaps there’s even some illusion to the religious holiday that lands within the vicinity of my Aging Day and the fact that it will signify the end of Lent. I’ve given up buying recreational books and it’s been somewhat trying. Good thing I’ve got a personal library to keep me going!
