Creamed Potatoes and Peas

I remember my parents making this dish.  We usually will fix up a batch when our peas are ready in the garden and we have some little potatoes.  {print recipe}

small new potatoes, cut into halves or quartered


2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons flour

2 cups milk

season salt

onion powder

garlic powder

Cut up your potatoes and cook until tender.  Add the peas about 5 minutes before the potatoes are done.  Drain the potatoes and peas.  While the potatoes are cooking, you can start cooking the sauce.  Melt the butter and then add the flour and seasonings (to taste).  Slowly stir in the milk and cook stirring constantly until it comes to a boil.  Boil and stir another minute and then pour over the drained potatoes and peas.
