Now I realize Yankees only cook fresh green beans two or three minutes but in the south we cook them and they are delicious. This made three meals for me but would feed a family if you added bread or another vegetable or maybe a salad. And for some reason I like my green beans whole, I have no earthly reason why, I just do.
Years past I would make this with a ham hock but I really don't like all that fat now, this way is much better. Sometimes I also use cabbage instead of green beans. I like it just as much and it's just as filling and healthy and low calorie.
If you aren't liking the cooking stuff I'm sorry, I'll try to tell you other stuff so you'll be interested too but us Bee Bandwagoners are on a roll y'all! Happy and healthy we are! 2013? Bring it!
