Creamed Peas

Everything's better with cream...especially vegetables! I served this tonight, and my 5 year old said they were pea-riffic. :)

Creamed Peas
1 pkg (10oz) frozen peas
2 TBSPs butter
2 TBSPs flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup milk
2 tsps sugar

1. Cook peas according to package directions; drain.
2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour, salt, and pepper and stir until bubbly; gradually add milk and sugar.
3. Bring to a boil; cook and stir (I whisk) for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
4. Add peas to sauce and heat through.
Serves 8-10



We used to eat this a lot as children because it was cheap and easy! My mom always served it over toast to add some texture.
