    I grew up in Fall River MA and my grandmother used to make something much like this but it was a soup. Oh, and don't let the Irish last name fool you, my grandmother was 100% Azorean Portugese ! Have you ever seen a soup recipe? Grandma didn't work and play well with others in the kitchen. We have no recipes of hers. I love this site for that reason!

    That is great to hear Holly, most Portuguese grandmothers don't get along with others in the kitchen for the most part lol, it's their way or no way lol, I don't know if we have the soup, we do have a few pea stews, please use the search option at the top of the page, have a great day.
