Creamed Peas & Potatoes

1 lb. frozen peas
1 1/2 lb. small red potatoes
1 1/2 c. milk (we used whole milk)
1 1/2 c. cream
4 Tbls. butter
4 Tbls. Flour
Salt & Pepper to taste

Scrub the potatoes. (If using large potatoes, cut into large chunks). Cook the potatoes in boiling water until tender. Add peas to the boiling water for the last 5-10 minutes cooking time. Cook until done. Drain the water.
In a separate saucepan, melt the butter and add flour to make a paste. Add milk, cream, and salt & pepper. Cream sauce will thicken. Once thickened, add to peas and potato mixture. Stir. Enjoy!

This has been a family favorite for years. I've always loved this dish growing up, and still do today. They also taste great with the "Guymons famous bread sticks" recipe.
