Lima Beans (and Rice)

Most people, it seems, don't like Lima beans. I can't say I thought much of them either growing up. I don't recall having them often. But then I got married. My husband has a favorite birthday meal (I saw birthday because that's about how often we can get him mother to fix it. That meal is fried chicken (which I do not even attempt because hers is so good), rice, Lima beans, and gravy. Fixed that way, even my three kids like Lima beans! His birthday is coming in a few months . . . better start working on her now!

  2. Bleck! Lima beans and brussel sprouts are evil! Actually, I'll eat lima beans if it is mixed in to a frozen veggie mix - I'm too lazy to pick them out - but I'm not a fan of beans in general. I don't like the texture of them.

  6. I remember.....
    There was a time that I was so excited to cook something for my wife (it was Mrs. Penwasser #1) that I had as a kid: lima beans and tomato sauce. I remember when my mother used to make it and we loved it.
    So, all excited, I prepared a meal for the two of us. When we took a bite, we realized that maybe my childhood memory wasn't what I thought it was. Ewwww......
    Maybe that was why Mrs. Penwasser #1 gave me the heave-ho.
    I still LOVE lima beans, though, regardless of my gastronomic misadventure.

  9. I do not love lima beans, I do not hate them. They just are in my book :) Wonder what that dish of chicken, rice, lima beans and gravy tastes like?

    Cheers, Jenn
