Fava beans or Lima Beans or Tuinbonen (in Dutch) – It’s really delicious except that there’s a lot of preparation work before we can cook or eat it. All that popping pods out and peeling the outer skin.. Well, I love beans or peas, so I take all the work in stride..

Eggs and onions are my basic fast easy and comfort food, especially when time’s tight or when something simple’s the best I can think of.. πŸ™‚
