Pea Pod Delight!


Today, I am posting about a little snack I hope to steal and make my own.

Each month, on a Wednesday, there is a meeting at the College of the professional staff (I am part of the professional staff - isn't that frightening?). It's really a little snack fest, but usually someone comes and gives a little speech and everyone drinks and noshes. The nosh is quite excellent.

My personal favorite are these little pea pod delights. I could eat the whole tray. Screw the bruschetta and the little chicken roll-ups. The pea pod is da bomb.

They are so simple. Basically, you take cream cheese, add some onions, add some herbs, mix, and pipe inside of a snow pea pod. It is creamy and crispy and oh so wonderful.

Now, I want to take this basic recipe and run with it. How about pea pod wonton style with crab? Or pea pod with curry cream cheese? Hopefully, I will be able to find some fresh pea pods around so I can give it a try!
