    Who knew there was a holiday for lima beans? :lol:

    I can't stand them myself, :cringe: so I'll pass on 'celebrating' today.

    Do you love them or hate them?

    LOL this is too funny!
    Hmmm. I'm neutral tending towards not so much on my plate, I think.

    I hate them but now I kind of feel sorry for them because I think so many
    people dislike them that someone decided to give them their own day.

    I like them. They taste like Butter Beans to me.

    I like them and I have not had them in years. I had some for dinner last night but then I found little bits of ham in them so I could not eat them.

    I didn't like them as a child either, but now I do. Maybe try them again sometime? :thumbsup:

    It's possible. I feel like I'm 50-50 on things I didn't like as a child. Some I like now, and some I hate even more! :p

    I don't dislike them, but can't say I like them either. I rarely eat them because of the calories. Butter beans are better, but I don't eat those much either.

    Didn't know lima beans had a lot of calories.

    I think it's been about 45 years since I've eaten a lima bean! Maybe someday...

    I like baby limas. I don’t like the big squishy ones.

    Well, it was meant to be! I went to start some black beans in the Instant Pot, and there in the drawer was a bag of dried lima beans. :noway: Hubby must have bought them at some point, I know I didn’t. :headshake:

    So I thought, what the heck, I’ll make them instead of black beans for dinner tonight. I found a recipe for ‘Greek style’ limas to try. (I do have a back up plan for dinner in case I discover I still hate them.) :lol:

    I love lima beans! I get the baby lima beans in bags and cook them the way my mother used to: soak them overnight, cook them to boiling the next day and add a T of baking soda. Boil for 5 minutes, drain, rinse. Add enough water to cover them, throw in some ham pieces and simmer for many hours until they are mush. It makes like a gravy and I put that over rice. One of my all time favorite meals!

    Although I'm vegetarian lima beans are not one of my favorites. I will eat them but they're not on the top of my list.

    I like them. Especially when they are well done and have an almost baked potato texture. Serve with butter a tiny bit of salt and a hearty sprinkle of pepper.
