Raw, adjective: 1. uncooked, as articles of food: a raw carrot.

When the time comes to pop out a few children, I'll need to have a garden, too, just for the mere fact that eating fresh dirty produce straight off the vine standing barefoot in the prairie sun is one of the best memories of my own childhood.*  Every time I eat a snap pea or a strawberry, I'm whooshed back to age 5 and dirty knees and whipping wind in my hair.

So lately I've been carrying around sugar snap peas wherever I go.  They're easy to transport, low-maintenance, won't spoil after a few hours of being unrefrigerated, and taste crispy-crunchy-delicious.  Totally recommend this easy raw snack as a simple alternative to Doritos and their ilk.  Mann's features a clever little recipe on the back of their pre-washed snap pea package.  They're pretty perfect as they are, but if you want to shake things up, check it out these easy Taco Snap Peas:

8 oz sugar snap peas
1 tbsp taco flavoring
1 spray garlic or butter flavored cooking spray

Open bag and spray cooking spray on the peas.  Sprinkle with 1 tbsp taco seasoning.  Hold the bag shut and shake it until the peas are well-coated.  Serve plain or with your favorite salsa dip.

*Molly, I love that you and Tim are making this happen for Zoe in B'more as I write.
