    My current veggie craving is lemon-parmesan lima beans.
    Frozen lima beans cooked with a bit of olive oil, lemon zest and fresh lemon juice. Garnish with good-sized shards of shaved parmesan.

    I'm not a big fan of limas, but I think that would be GREAT on green peas which are my absolute favorite.

    I just tasted the Smoky Chipotle Cassoulet that Critical posted here. I made some changes according to what I had available. I used boneless chicken breast - about a pound and a half and added another can of beans in addition to the other two pinto, navy and black (because I had them). I did go ahead and add fresh orange juice. And lots more of the chipotle peppers - a little reckless, but we do like spicy food. Mr. Cootie thought it was pretty spicy, but he was really happy to see something new. He has noticed my cooking lately

    Thanks again for the wonderful ideas. I have a pork roast to go in the crock pot next. I am not sure whether it is going to be bbq or carnitas style.

    And see, I'm not a big fan of peas (unless they're freshly picked and raw, and I'm standing next to the vine in the garden). But I'm sure that would be a great combo. Pretty, too!

    Sounds delicious. I love lima beans.

    OT, but I love lima beans with real butter and pepper.

    Re: Crockpot recipes

    I have been thinking about getting a crockpot, but I'm concerned that it will make to much food for just one person. I'll eat leftovers, but I do get tired of them after a couple of days. Any thoughts on this?

    You can freeze the extra portions in containers or freezer bags.

    There are several different sizes of slow cookers/crockpots as well. But my mindset is that it's a real timesaver to cook large amounts and preserve for quick reheats.

    I can do 5 or so different dishes in one afternoon (crockpot, stove and oven), each with 5-6 servings, and that's not counting the crockpot dish that cooked overnight.

    I have been freezing the leftovers in individual servings as our family schedule is such that we are all on weird eating times. It has really helped AND I love that when I cook in the crockpot, it's easy and quick to prepare it and turn it on and then I have several days worth of meals from it to choose from in the freezer.

    And now I'm doing the oatmeal for breakfast in it 2 times a week and refrigerating those leftovers. It's been a HUGE help this semester for all of us. But I've always loved my crockpot.
