Got ham bone from Christmas cooking with the large Lima beans.
Will be dinner with a slice of home made bread.

I love trying to find clever ways to use up food. I tried chili Colorado recently and didn’t let it reduce enough, so there was a lot of sauce leftover. I ended up using it as the base for some jackfruit posole. I figured I made a Mexican grandma smile by using everything up.
Also made turkey gumbo with our leftover smoked turkey breast.
Combining leftover things with stuff like pasta, potatoes, rice, eggs, etc generally has good potential
I said to my little one, "come here so I can change you".
He said "change only comes from within".  :-/

Yum. My granny used to call those butter beans, and made them with a hunk of fatback... that's where my love of limas started.

 So did my mom. :)
It's an Earth food. They are called Swedish meatballs. It's a strange thing, but every sentient race has its own version of these Swedish meatballs! I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.
