I think I bought a bag after those Dina. Although, I bought the bag right after I finished off the one you sent me, so likely they weren't much fresher.

My mother makes what she calls lima bean and macaroni soup. It starts with bone-in chicken breasts to make the broth. She puts salt and pepper in it, but no other herbs or spices, just celery and onion. It is one of my comfort foods, especially during the winter. Leftovers get very thick and need to have chicken broth added to keep it a soup consistency.
