I thought I'd make quesadillas for supper tonight. When I went to my cookbooks for hints, no recipes were listed. Old books, I reckon. Luckily, there's google! So many choices and combinations. Any favorites?

Randy, you got yourself a good haul with all those blueberries.  Yes, they freeze well.  I imagine myself using up 5.5 lbs. of blueberries in no time.  It would be hard to contain myself.

I lOVE blueberries! 5 lbs. sounds great. A blueberry buckle for breakfast sounds wonderful. For that matter, blueberry anything sounds good.

Just returned from picking 5.5 lbs of blueberries from a farm 10' down the road. They were very large (from all the rain). Mosquitoes were large, too! There were few people there because of the nasty weather--misty, windy, and cool. I liked it. No whining kids or yackity adults. Blueberries are almost as cheap at Aldi, but my picked ones are guaranteed not sprayed. Plus, I can buy them in bulk, then freeze. Yum.

Thank you , Felaine. I grow and eat them, and didn't know that. They were good in my stir-fry last night.

Randall, "Dutch" peas is just another name for what we call Chinese peas or Snow Peas.... unripe tiny peas and flat edible pods.

Love green beans. Frozen or canned. Obviously fresh is better, but a little tough to get in the midwest in mid-winter. Got 46 pints, and they all sealed. Yay! This will definitely last me for a year. Next project is sweet corn.

I love the taste of sugar snap peas, but hate the strings! Plus, they're a pain to grow. You gotta have a fence to vine up on. Their roots are shallow, so weeding them is problematic. "Dutch" peas, huh? New one on me.

D'ruther have sugar snap peas or Dutch/Chinese peas (with water chestnuts  and chicken) than any kind of string beans.  IMO those are only good for 4-bean salad, or just pickled.

A friend used to plant a row of green beans just for her cocker spaniel...Sadie loved them raw right off the vine. When Sadie "left the building," Sue stopped planting the beans....except for a single small plant over Sadie's grave.

I don't know, Pat, Canned green beans never appealed to me. Frozen is bad enough, but preferable. Have fun canning!

My purple beans blanch out when cooked--back to green. Boo.
