You're very welcome, tenspeed! I had tossed the snow peas into the pot about halfway through the cooking time, but I did eye the extras (that are still sitting in my veggie drawer) as additions to the raw bar. Ended up saying "eh, no". Next time I'll be sure to include them for raw garnish.

My Mom made a good one from canned salmon, too. She always made a creamed pea sauce. Loved that sauce on the salmon.

I had an abundance of milk in the fridge, so I made a casserole of mac-and-cheese (half applewood smoked cheddar/half smoked gouda). We had that with a small ham steak and about 1 1/3 pounds of fresh green beans simmered with the ham. When I do a smoked pork meat and green beans together, it's ALWAYS about the beans! ~~~ A berry bowl to split later, with a dab of quality ice cream.

I was photographing, pricing, and listing miniature wicker pieces all day so I didn't want to cook when I was finally finished. So tonight I had a turkey sandwich with bacon and cheddar cheese.

That sounds lovely. I think gruyere cheese is my favourite melting cheese.

Looks very tasty.

I did some flat iron steak on a ribbed cast iron griddle last night using the multi-flip method and they came out perfect, medium rare, to my liking.
But of course, I had to keep the griddle hot as my wife and friend had to take their sliced portions to charred beyond recognition.

Thank you Souschef. I also added some snow peas at the last minute for a bit of crunch.
