    I think oyster crackers are underrated.

    Good in soup and chili...and sometimes I just snack on them if I want something crunchy/salty for not a ton of calories.

    I agree!

    I love oyster crackers. A lot of bang for your buck.

    Edited because I can't eat just one. 😀

    Used to love gizzards. Never see them anymore. That’s probably a big reason you’ve never had them.

    lentils, split peas, and all types of beans. So many of my friends have never tried these or hate them. They're huge staples in my house.

    Super random, but what are the super big beans? My grandma makes this AMAZING bean, brown sugar, onion dish in the Crock pot every Christmas and the really big beans are my favorite.

    Are they Lima beans or fava beans perhaps?
    Favas are very common in Italy, but I can't find them here in the United States... But it might be because I live in a small town.
    They both look very similar, but they have a very different flavor.

    AGREED! I love steamed cabbage especially.
