    Malriah's Note:

    When I was a little girl and I would get sick, my Mama (Mary in LA) would always serve me Creamed Peas on Toast. It was light enough for an upset tummy but filling enough to make a sick little girl not be hungry anymore. I never could make it like Mama could until now. I finally figured out where the recipe came from! It is from a book called "The Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedia of Cooking and Homemaking" which was published in 1940. I decide to post this recipe as a tribute to my Mama. Now all mommies can help their daughters sick tummies feel better just like mine did all those years ago. Thanks Mama!

      MMMMM!! I'm pregnant (so getting wild cravings) and was dying for the same creamed peas I used to eat as a kid (when I was sick too!) These taste just like my mom's- well, with a little extra salt and lots of extra pepper- I dont think my mom could cook without pepper! and just for the record- these always made me get better when I was a kid. They never curdled my stomach and made me barf.

      This is nothing more than a basic white sauce on peas - you can get the recipe off the Argo cornstarch box. Bland but simple to make. And as for feeding it to sick kids, anything with milk will curdle on an acidic stomach and that leads to barfing - sometimes these old-time cures hurt more than help.

      Kari--this is one of my all time favorite comfort foods on this planet! I make this exactly the same way....Have you ever tried it over mashed potatoes? Pure heaven. :)
