Notes:

Here I go again screaming FIBER! As an American culture we do not get enough vegetables and fruits so that mean less fiber. Fiber helps fill you up and reduces the speed in which our bodies turn carbs into sugar. I am done harping on it for now but BEWARE I will do it again. LOL Everything you need to know is listed above at the end of the recipe. Good news though…I found one of my old programs that will allow me to input recipes and it will give me the nutritional facts in return. I have not tried it to see if it works with new Windows but will try it with the next recipe for a trial run and see what you have to say.

This one is great for summer picnics!

Mmmm, I love peas! This sounds great. Would you do everyone a favor and put it in our recipe section as well so people can look it up there. Hate to have people miss out.

I can help..just go to the section "Recipes" and click on the blue button "Add a Recipe" Simply fill in the boxes with the information that is asked for and it will put it all together for you in a nice format. It is not too hard and if you need hel with the nutritional values you can use books to help you figure that out.
