BBQ'd Lima Beans

The pipeliner has been gone off and on since mid December.
While I miss him like crazy, 
it gives me the freedom from having a nightly meal on the table.
Plus it gives me a chance to eat some of my favorites.
Things that he just refuses to eat.

I started out with my all time favorite,
liver and onions!
YUM!

I made meatloaf one night when the daughter and grandson were here.
The little man loved it!

I've fixed sauerkraut and sausage, chicken and dumplings, red beans and rice.

Can you believe the man doesn't like any of these tastey dishes?

Tonight a made a big batch of lima beans my style!


I will share the recipe with you guys!

2 cans lima beans drained 
1 can tomato soup
small onion chopped 
green pepper chopped
1 cup brown sugar
4 slices bacon chopped
1 tbsp mustard

Mix all ingredients together.
You can bake it in the oven for an hour or so at 350 F.
Or throw it in the crockpot.
Set the temperature on low and let it simmer all day!
Thats how I cooked it today.
The house smells great!

I can't wait to have a big ol' bowl!


On the menu next,
deep fried chicken livers!

  7. Some of them sound good. Liver and onions - NO!, Lima Beans - NO!, Chicken Livers - NO! But now chicken and dumplings, meatloaf and red beans and rice - YES!

    1. I was never a fan of lima beans until my MIL made them this way. I hope you do stop by Debras blog. She is truly a homesteader!

  15. This sounds very similar to my baked brown beans recipe ... mine is with navy beans. All these dishes sound good (just wavering on deep-fried chicken livers). I'm glad meatloaf has always been a favourite in our family because I always loved it when my mom made it too ;) Hope your husband comes back home soon ... I'll bet he'll be looking forward to some homecooked meals! Wendy x
