Is the punctuation in this phrase correct? ...like two, li'l, sweet "peas in a pod"!

  1. Given that 'peas in a pod' is such a well-known idiom, I don't think it needs quotes.
  2. I would write "two little sweet peas" and so I would likewise write "two l'il sweet peas"

So my solution would be:

...like two li'l sweet peas in a pod!

No comma between "two" and "li'l'" because one would not say or write "two and li'l."
