Creamed Peas and Purple Potatoes

Tonight's Homestead Meal:
Home grown Filet Mignon steaks, grilled zucchini fresh from the garden and creamy peas and purple potatoes also from the garden!
Not was it only beautiful, it was delicious!
Boil new potatoes until fork tender. Steam peas for about 12 minutes. Set both aside.
Make creamy Parmesan sauce:
Melt 3 tbsp. butter in sauce pan. Add about 3 tbsp. flour and allow to cook for a minute or so. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups of milk or cream. (I used the cream off of the top of our raw milk). When thick add a heaping handful of Parmesan cheese. Stir until melted. Fold peas and potatoes into sauce. Top with a bit more cheese and chives.
