Peas to die for!

2 bags frozen sweet peas
1/2 - 1 lb pearl onions (can also be frozen ... I think)
1 lb of bacon
3 TBS butter
salt & pepper

Fry up a pound of bacon until it's crisp. Remove bacon and crumble it for a nice wedge salad or something else. You don't really need it in this recipe, but if you dig bacon with your peas, crumble it and set it aside for later in the recipe. Drain all but a couple tablespoons of the bacon fat into sometime else to throw out. Add the pearl onions to the pan with the few tablespoons of bacon drippings and grease. Toss in butter ... since this dish wasn't sinful enough. Once the onions begin to brown around the edges and are turning transparent, add all the peas at once. Heat until peas are warm, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. If you want bacon in the dish, go ahead and add your bacon now.

**On Christmas Eve, Ryan ate these peas by the handful. He ate an entire cup of peas, all by himself, in one sitting!
