I don't remember my parents ever making lima beans. I remember the kids at school complaining about them but didn't know what they tasted like so I assumed they tasted a lot worst than they do and never bought them.
At least, I didn't until about a year ago.
A store in town was having a sale on frozen mixed veggies and they happened to have lima beans in them. I figured that N wouldn't eat them and that I could.
Imagine my surprise when she picked out all the lima beans and left the green beans, corn, peas and carrots. With hefty encouraging she ate all the peas and corn too but nothing could get her to eat the carrots or green beans.
It is just funny how kids like a food that you are sure they will not.
