I know, weird combination ... but I didn't eat them together. In fact, I haven't eaten any of the lima beans yet. On Tuesday morning before work, I picked one-fourth of a bushel of organic limas at the pick-your-own Windmere Farms in Raleigh. Damn, that's a lot of work! But here are the fruits of my labor:
It took about an hour and a half to fill up my small basket. And then the suckers had to be shelled. I'm still working on that, but I've shelled (and frozen for the winter) about half my haul. I plan to finish up shelling on Saturday morning.
Tonight, I whipped up some "Chicken" Queso-Less Dillas (that's what I like to call vegan quesadillas):
I sauteed some Morningstar Farms faux chicken strips with a mixture of water, nooch, soy sauce, chili powder, and garlic. Then I spread that over a whole wheat spinach tortilla, along with some salsa and shredded Teese. I topped the tortilla with another tortilla and heated it up in a dry skillet for a few minutes.
Yum! Melty, Teesy goodness! Unfortunately, my neighbor's water pipe broke this afternoon and the utility company shut my water off. Since the place is being foreclosed, our rental company won't fix anything, so now we're trying to figure out how to get his pipe fixed and our water back on. That meant I couldn't wash my Teesy, nasty dishes tonight. Nor can I shower. Ick.
UPDATE (9/19/08): My neighbor Wes called me to tell me the water has been repaired! Yea!
