LIMA BEANS AND MAC AND CHEESE WITH ROASTED CHICKEN - WOW - WHAT A MEAL

I love lima beans.  When I was in Peru I ate them almost every day - lima bean green rice is awesome.  I buy the Fordhook frozen lima beans.  The only time I eat canned lima beans is when I eat succotash - also awesome. 

While I love lima beans, they never really seem to go with any given meal - they are good with sliced steamed sweet potato.  Well, last night I had company so I made mac and cheese with lima beans being the veggie.  What an addictive combo.  The roasted rosemary chicken just topped it off.

You know people, cooking a great meal is not really a challenge.  Prepping the chicken is at most 5 minutes- you then throw it in the oven for an hour and half - more or less.  During that time I clean around the house.  You have to clean the house.  It is just making use of your time.  Just before the chicken was done, I started the lima beans.  Once the chicken was done, I put on the mac and cheese.  Roasted meat should always sit for a bit before slicing.
