I took this pic in a grocery store in Panama last week. I didn't purchase the peas. I'd never purchase peas.
I hate peas. Absolutely can't stand them. It stems from an incident in my childhood. When I was a kid and the pre-teen son of parents who were practising Catholics, we didn't eat meat on Fridays. So Fridays, without fail, were Tuna Casserole Night. Yep, Kraft Dinner - or as you Americans so elegantly refer to it: Mac and Cheese - and tuna.
But my mother took a bit of a twist on the dish to dress it up a bit. You know, to give it some colour. She added a can of peas. I don't think I knew there was such a thing as fresh peas until I was an adult. I'd do all kinds of things with the peas, except eat them. They'd make me gag. I'd push them to one side of my plate. I'd push them under my plate. I'd spit them into my glass of milk. I'd excuse myself from the table on the pretext of going to the bathroom and spit them out in the toilet. I made a lot of trips to the bathroom on Fridays.
To this day I can't eat peas. Or liver, but that's another tale for another time. And I won't be taking any pictures of liver.
