All I wanted were some frozen peas, dammit!
I was at the store staring into the frozen veggie section. Walking up and down the four or five doors looking for frozen peas. Just a simple bag of frozen peas. The kind you get for 99 cents or some el cheapo price because they are PLAIN.FROZEN.PEAS. in a PLAIN.FROZEN.PEA.BAG. I am certain they no longer exist. My choices were peas and onions, peas in a butter sauce, peas and carrots and onions. As for plain peas in a bag, my only option was those "steamfresh" bags. Don't get me wrong, that makes cooking really easy. But A) I don't like paying the extra EXTRA cash for that special bag when I can just steam them myself without that bag and B) since I like my peas raw and in a salad I am now forced to pay for a damn "steamfresh" bag that I don't even want! I finally found a bag of "steamfresh" peas on sale for a decent price and bought two bags.
But really, all I want to know is where are the plain veggies in the plain bags?
