Recipe For Pea And Yoghurt Dip

I always have frozen peas in my freezer. This means that if I cannot find fresh peas I can still make this pea and yoghurt dip. It takes no time at all and offers a lot of flavour for very little effort.

Head straight on to the Recipe For Pea And Yoghurt Dip ♥

Last year October Dave and I were in the UK. We got back before the last Saturday of the month. This is when the clocks turn backwards or forwards, depending on the hemisphere. We do not have daylight saving in South Africa so our time never changes. I always synch my watch to the time zone we are in and this is done via my cellphone. When we got back to South Africa I went straight back onto Central African Time. The following Sunday we had brunch plans. But before that we wanted to watch the qualifying for the Formula 1 race. I was in no rush to get ready as in my mind we had woken up early enough. While we were sitting in the lounge Dave told me we were leaving in 15 minutes time.

I looked at my watch and told him we only had to be down the road in an hour. It was then that I realized that my watch was on summer time and had gone back an hour. So, I did not have time to spare. Thankfully it did not take me too long to get dressed. For some reason my watch has set itself to daylight savings mode and I cannot find where that setting is. Knowing it would do that I was more than prepared when it changed again in March. Not that I would mind to be on summer time in our winter. The mornings are really dark and I would much prefer to wake up with the sun. But even though I cannot do that, I can bring a bit of summer into the house by making this pea and yoghurt dip.

  4. One of my clients many moons ago was the biggest producer of frozen peas in the UK and I visited the factory many times. Frozen peas are fresher than fresh, if you know what I mean as they’re picked and frozen so quickly. Unless you grow your own , the ones you can buy will be days old…although still delicious and I do take great pleasure in “podding” them! Lovely dip, will definitely make this 😀

  5. I know what you mean about time changes and daylight saving. I nearly missed a meeting in the UK because I was out on the time by an hour.

    1. That would not have been a good end result. I have learnt to change my watch as we land so as to not miss connecting flights 🙂
