Join the Pea Party!

President Obama Nailing a Pea Sub! or, Is That a Chicago Style Pea Dog?

"Pull off the band aid. Eat our peas." It doesn't sound like much now, but neither did Remember the Alamo!; Don't Tread on Me!, or Can't I Finish My Waffles?

Sacred Cows and Peas are on the menu as it appears that President Obama will beard the lions of the American Tea Party in the den, man-cave. lair, and cable-ready trailers of Average Guy U.S.A.!

What better way than form his own Pea Party!@ Media Matters, Stalking for America, MSNBC, and Salon.

The Pea Party will be dedicated to symbolically yanking off band aids and gobbling platefuls of peas in solidarity with President Obama.

Taxes are peas - Now Open that Gullet! Peas ain't so bad. Peas are mighty tasty.

I like Peas! In Ireland, I learned to love the wonderful snack treat of Chips and Peas ( French Fries and Peas in a greasy mixed bag doused with malt vinegar and sprinkled with Sea Salt) - that's good eating!

Here is how to eat them peas!

Pat Hickey Pancetta Peas with Mint!

Italian cubed pancetta from Calabria Imports on 103rd Street
2 Cups of frozen peas
1 Cup sugarsnap peas
One big-ass knob of Kerry Gold butter
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
a pinch of sugar
Ice Water Bath for the peas

Fill the old kettle with water and put in to boil.

Heat a small frying, add the pancetta and cook over a medium heat for 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally until the pancetta is really crisp and golden.

Drain off excess fat on a kitchen roll and set aside.

As the pancetta cooks, place the frozen peas in a large saucepan, add boiling water from the kettle to cover and return to the boil, add the sugar-snap peas and boil for 3 minutes. Then put them in the old ice water bath to keep the peas the proper green.

Drain in a colander then return them to the saucepan, add the pancetta, butter, mint and sugar and toss well to mix. Toss in some Sea Salt and Carck in a bunch of black pepper. Serve straight away.

Pea Party!

Are there Pea Baggers?

When I'm in Maui, I like to buy bags of frozen peas to feed to the reef fish when I snorkel. Does that make me a peabagger?

I guess it do, Brer Cat! I like my Peas with chips, malt vinegar and chips (ffs) in a nice greasy bag.

I'm a proud Pea Bagger!

Peas to You, My Brother!

Mr. Cat ( Kevin Trevor,n'cest pas?).

As Joseph Addison spoke of in The Campaign -"Great souls by instinct to each other turn, demand alliance, and in friendship burn."

In that case, are blogs analogous to lighter fluid?

Mayhaps, Brer Cat. Butane, or Naptha as you choose.
