guess what happens when you fall asleep on the couch at 7? you wake up at midnight, and then wonder if you can go back to sleep! i always do this the night before work. dork.
i made quite possibly the most amazing lima bean dish tonight, which i know for some of you might sound like cooking the impossible, but honestly; lima beans have to be my favorite bean to cook. if done right they are creamy little pockets of yum. i kind of made up the recipe as i went along, so i need to write it all down because it was so good. i cooked a whole pound of dried beans, and we had a little less than a serving left after dinner. the kids especially loved it, and that totally made me feel like a rockstar. they are such good eaters! completely open to trying anything once, and they tend to love stuff you'd have a hard time selling other kids. they can probably name more veggies than your average grocery store checkout clerk, and know the difference between a parsnip and a rutabaga. in short, they are pretty much the perfect people to cook for.
i'm going to try to go back to sleep. wish me luck!
