Having a bunch of elbow macaroni leftover, I’ve been thinking that I ought to make some beans and macaroni. It occurred to me that my heritage includes some other tasty things that go with beans, thus I arrived at beans, macaroni, spinach, and lima beans.

In my own cooking, I’ve not really done much involving spinach. But I remember well that my mother could make delicious meals around spinach, the key was cooking and seasoning. Fortunately my ancestry includes eating well even at affordable prices 😃
