  This was originally released after the BP Gulf Disaster, and was updated in 2012 and 2013 as conditions continue to improve.

  Fresh English Sweet Peas are a special treat, and when Carl Musso starts picking and delivering local peas to Tony’s, I eat them several times each week.  In need of a change, I wanted to make English Mushies (mashed peas), but with only two cups of peas, I tossed in a potato and and…
