Give peas a chance

I like puns.

Okay, so due to lack of money, I've had to get creative with food. Rice and carrots form the base, but dried peas - the worst kind, really - can be a great source of protein. 

I did make a mistake in my first attempt, putting in way too much peas in the risotto I made, also without first soaking the peas, so they didn't cook very well. They DO make for a handy tasteless snack, though - a handful of peas and a lot of water is a decent meal replacement when one's feeling too lazy to do anything.

In other news, I woke up yesterday and found myself in control of myself. It was a weird experience.... well, I'm in a weird situation all around, so I guess it's to be expected.
I'll Zemanta up some recipes - Blogger has a lot of new features, gotta try them out, wouldn't be proper otherwise.
