"I wanted to do a little something different with a bag of frozen Lima beans and came up with this. This is sort of the way I cook my green beans. If you want to add more Ham, go right ahead and do so. Also with any and all of my recipes,please adjust the seasonings to yours and your families tastes. " Keep Smiling :)"
