Yeah, that's why I thought about that. We usually have ham with either the big limas or navy beans, but I am pretty sure I have a package of blackeyed peas.

Combining the limas and the split peas might be an interesting combination. Personally, the only way I like pintos is for refried beans, but if you like them, that would be a good bet too.

I made a Butternut Squash, Cheddar and apple soup.. it was very easy! I lightned it up by using 'light butter' and 2% milk... Blended it all up in the pot, and ate with cheddar cheese garnish and home made croutons... Delicious food on a snowy day stuck inside

Not feeling well at all today, I think I'm coming down with a cold, so I made tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.

I have a feeling it is the big indoor one at their mall, or another indoor one! I know what you mean though--I almost froze to death just reading that!

The ones I don't like are kidney beans. I just don't like them. Too tough for my chili.

I am still looking for black beans. I had some once from a can and mixed them with canned corn. Awww, it was really good.

So, here's what I'm thinking about mixing the split peas with the baby limas. Both cook in pretty short times, well, for beans. I could also use just the pinto beans, but they are too bland for me to use with that spendid bone.

I'll have to just start a thread.


Happy Anniversary, Princess and Shrek!

LOL I love kidney beans for chili!

Well, I am not cooking tonight after all. James decided he is in the mood for KFC, and I'm not going to argue! My feet are so cold, I might just stick them in the mashed potatoes and gravy instead of eating them! Nah, I love mashed potatoes and gravy too much.
