One of the nice things about doing a food blog is discovering all of the new recipes. You want to try them all. But sometimes you just want to settle in with the tried and true. Kind of like snuggling up with a comfortable old blanket on a cold evening. So tonight dinner was about comfort food. Even still we managed to sneak in a simple and great recipe from PetersFoodAdventures.
Tonight we had
Fried Green Peas (Жареный зеленый горох). It is such a simple recipe, pretty much stir frying the peas in butter and salting. So much better than the old boiled peas mom always made.
Peter suggested steak and gravy to complement the peas. So we went with Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy and Mashed Potatoes.
Yep if you looked at the menu plan for this week we were supposed to have a Tossed Salad with this instead of Mashed Potatoes. But there was a small rebellion. “You can’t have Salisbury Steak with out Mashed Potatoes!” I was told.
So we rolled with it and had a great meal.
