Green Peas and Potatoes with Lemon Mint Sauce

There is really nothing better than going to the garden and gathering some Green Peas and New Potatoes. The Peas are so fresh and crisp, I can eat them right off the vine.  After a trip to the garden the other day I wanted to create a vegetable dish for these wonderful fresh vegetables. We really enjoyed this dish and so I decided to share it with you today.
