I do not know what my earliest memories of the meal
Lima Beans and Ham are.
But certainly, I, and many of us, had them in our
In the US Marine Corps while on Field exercises, or
while preparing to load up to go out, they would
open a big box (12 meals? / 16?) with labels hidden,
and pass them out, totally randomly. You got what
you got. But sometimes trading occured. I liked
the ham and lima beans meal.
And for year after I would often enough have it
in cans from grocery store (Dennison's or Nalley??)
Then they stopped. I guess tastes change.
But my wife nicely made it from scratch for us.
It was GOOD!
