Oh my. This sounds sooo good I'm going to have to try it ...... on my friends. Aren't your bestest of friends willing guinea pigs to your new recipes?
That's funny Pan ;')
A couple of weeks ago I stopped by my office (I do have a physical office that I visit once or twice a month) and noticed a dozen or more spice bottles on a co-workers desk. I made some lame joke about smoking the Oregano and he asked me if I liked Lima Beans and Ham-hocks? I didn't want to tell him that I despise Lima Beans so I sorta nodded affirmatively. He said, "then you have to be here tomorrow cuz I'm making a batch right now!"
As luck would have it I had a meeting that brought me back to town the next day. When he reminded me about the beans I wavered a bit - I didn't want to insult him but I wasn't all that excited about the proposition of ralfing his project on the carpet. I figured I could utter something complementary and surreptitiously spit it back in the cup so I took a sample of his creation. And then I went back for two refills! Dayum they were good!
He spiced them up "Cajun style" and they were hot (I like 'em that way!), but the Lima's were tolerable and that's saying something. His recipe (as described) looks a lot like Jeff's ( from the other thread), except with Lima's instead of Great Northern's.
I was raised with certain rules. Eat what is put before you being one.
At a friends house for dinner one night, everyone was raving about this huge bowl of fresh mushrooms. I can't tell you if they were cooked or not, they just were. I hated mushrooms, they made me gag.
Of course I was served a portion. I ate them first to get the loathsome objects off of my plate, noticing this, my friends mother made a big issue of it.
Look! Kay ate every one of those mushrooms! Did you like them, dear? So, what do I say? The polite thing, of course . They were delicious.
Upon hearing this, they just had to serve me more. I objected on the grounds that others may wish to hVe more mushrooms, that I should not be selfish.
But, no, I had to take more......
