I bought some Texas cream peas last week in East Texas and they were delicious. I cooked them in chicken stock with big hunks of Noonday onions and thyme from my herb garden. However when I really get ambitious, I make this nifty recipe I clipped from TexMo a couple of years ago. You can buy some this weekend at the Dallas Farmers Market, along with these other local and regional goodies.
