we got a bag of these big yellow pods from the CSA. Possibly wax beans? The only thing I've ever known anybody to do with big beans is cook them all day with some bacon or ham, which isn't going to happen. What on earth do I do with these things?

what would you do with a mess of beans?
Seeing as I'm in the veg forum, I'm not going to advocate bacon, but I do like my green/wax beans fried-- with some shallots, or garlic and onions, then some kale or collards on top of quinoa with butter/olive/nut oil on top. The same topping is fabulous on top of a baked potato/ boiled and mashed potatoes. Sometimes the beans take a smidgeon of water in the pan, with the lid on for a minute. Speaking of shallots, take the time to fry up some shallots crispy, and put them on whatever you are cooking right as you serve it.
Do quick bean pickles with them-- they are excellent!
I'm reminded that I grew up calling the "Sund-ey" beans, after my grandmother. I never knew they were called "wax beans" until I was an adult.
We've gotten long beans (bigger, longer, sorta curly) from our CSA. We've most often used them to make indian-type of dishes maybe like this (minus the coconut milk or tamarind though. . . not that those are bad. I think we use a recipe we once found in Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian. )
We've also gotten Romano Beans - these are a bit flatter and almost like a super-sized snap pea. I chop them and cook with onion/garlic/tomato and we eat with other italian-type foods. They need a bit more liquid and longer cooking time (like 30-40 min, over 15-20 for ordinary green beans).
