May I present to you, Mediterranean-Style Baked Lima Beans from Veganomicon. After my first failed attempt, we were still looking forward to it. Tonight was the night. I started it late, like after 5 pm (got sucked into the new Phoenix Wright - hubby finally finished with it). But boy was it worth it! Hubby ended up eating 2 bowls full, and I mean full! We just ate it with some toasted pita bread. I would have eaten more, but I had already "shot up" with my Byetta and eaten some crackers and that kinda dampens my appetite some too. Either way, I am soooo looking forward to the leftovers. I must admit I was a bit worried about the mint in the recipe, and let me tell you, it sooo works. Yummy! And this comes from someone who doesn't even like lima beans.
At the moment I'm a homemaker, no kids, but we have 2 pugs (Ted & Mabel), 4 Quaker birds (Ralph, Sunshine, Cricket & Dot and 4 cockatiels (Gracie, Buster, Godiva & Lex). I'm trying to lose weight, doing WW. I love all types of food, and I love to cook. I was a licensed Veterinary Technician for 8 years until a medical problem (liver cell adenomatosis) and the fact that I am highly allergic to cats finally took it's toll. My last job (right before my liver diagnosis actually) was as the Executive Chef at a local Make & Take meal place (Like Dream Dinners or My Girlfriends Kitchen). I'm working at Project Perry (www.projectperry.com) a parrot sanctuary (I started there owning just Buster and Gracie). I love it and wish they had enough money to pay me. :)
