I remember having this much fun only once in my entire life. That was the day I had a root canal many years ago. Yep, today was worse. Do you have any idea how big a five gallon bucket is? I mean a five gallon bucket filled to overflowing with butter beans. No, not shelled!
It's a very good thing that I only use my thumbs for the space bar or I would not be typing this. Five gallon of butter beans will yield 8 quarts when finished. Bet you were dying to know that. These will be wonderful this winter in soups and stews or making Creole Lima Beans. Lima beans and butter beans are the same to me.
It was like I was into annoying myself today. After I finished the butter beans I had a few tomatoes left from the major tomato canning the day before so I decided to make another batch of Scotty's Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup for the winter. This stuff is to die for.
I'm not answering the phone at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow because it's always David with more vegetables. I'm taking a day off. Maybe I'll even have time to comment on some of my favorite blogs which I have neglected for so long.
