I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

We survived another Halloween on Woodland Avenue. This year we had handed out 800 treats by 6:30, the action started at 3:30, so we finished in record time! The children and parents are all so polite and fun to see, even some of the dogs that are brought along are in costume, I probably should have some doggie treats to hand out!
Today’s recipe is one of my favorite ways to prepare peas, be sure to use the tarragon, it’s the ingredient that makes the peas taste so good!

one slice of ham cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 red onion, halved and slice thin
2/3 cup whipping cream

salt and pepper to taste
1 # frozen peas
Melt butter, add ham, cook til brown about 5 minutes.Add onion, cook another 5 minutes, add cream and seasonings, cook 3 minutes til getting thick. Stir in peas. Cover and cook another 5 minutes, serve. Have a great week!
