yummy cream peas

i made this for dinner tonight. it's normally a side dish, but it's so yummy and, heck, i'm single ... so it was my meal. :)

no pics because i gobbled it right up, but here's the recipe. prolly not the most nutritious nor diet-friendly, but it's easy to adjust to reduce calories and fat without sacrificing taste (e.g., replacing the cream with 2% milk tastes pretty good, just less rich).

1 ½ c sweet green peas, frozen or canned
½ c water
¼ c heavy cream
1 ½ Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp butter
Salt, to taste

Put peas, water, and salt into pot. Bring to boil, then add butter. In a bowl, whisk flour and cream. Add to peas. Over medium-high heat, cook until thick and bubbly – about 5 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
