Still uberfrugal and today was a NSD. My classes went well despite oncoming cold. DH has had it for a week so I guess it's inevitable I'd get it.

Yesterday we got a refund of $147 from the dentist which went into the bank this afternoon. DH had a good phone interview and lots of other leads. I think things are picking up for him. We'd love to see a job offer.

No other news to report. No BBQ sauce spills. I should turn the turkey breast bones into soup and should bake some pumpkin bread. We'll see how much zip I have left.

And speaking of eating it all up, somewhere along the line DH bought a bag of frozen lima beans. Honestly, I'd have to be in some desperate straits before I willingly ate lima beans, and all the recipes I see for them have cream of something soup or ham bones or something like that in them. Anyone have ideas? Should I just combine them with canned baked beans and have him eat them? You're all invited over for a lovely ladies lima lunch.

    If you like baked beans, you can combine with other beans you like better -- look up some five-bean bake recipes. Or just make him eat them. They're good for him!

  2. My English Castle Says:

    I have a good warm bean salad--but will probably combine. He actually likes beans on toast and baked (aka jacket) potatoes with beans. I see tomorrow's lunch (for him at least) looming.

    I wish I could help! I like kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, all sorts of beans, but lima beans and the one type I just can't eat! I think it's the texture...

    I like lima beans just warmed up .. so I'm of no help.

    Could you find them more tolerable if they were called 'Butter beans?' We use them in 3 bean salad, a tiny amount added to Chili, mixed with Navy beans and corn for succotash?

    I didn't know lima beans were butterbeans. I'm making a butterbean and vegetable curry this week to use up a tin of them. Never had it before.

  7. My English Castle Says:

    I thought butterbeans were brown and limas green? I do throw butterbeans into th warm bean salad. But I'm with you on the texture thing. I think it's just plain mean thy use them in frozen mixed vegetables. I'm throwing them in his lunch. I'm sure he'll be fine with it.

  8. scottish girl Says:

    According to the back of my tin "butterbeans are also known as lima beans". They're white

    I like them plain and by themselves, truly, but maybe in soup would help?

    Thanks for the offer of lima bean lunch, but I think I'll pass. Smile
