One of my favorite things is to go out early in the morning (ok, “early” is relative…wink, wink) and pick fresh veggies from the garden. This morning I was out in the garden enjoying the warmth and sunshine, and loving every minute of it.
Tis the season for green beans at my house. I swear I needed to start picking again because of all the growth that took place by the time I had gotten through the rows! Don’t get me wrong. I’m really thankful for extras that can be frozen for the long Ohio winter. But on days like this, there is nothing like a pot of fresh green beans for dinner. I like to make my beans the meal and I do that by simply adding a meat and potato…right to the same pot.
This is what I use…
1/2 kettle of cleaned green beans
1 lb smoked sausage or kielbasa (cubed)
6 medium potatoes (cubed)
salt to taste
I throw all this in the pot and cover with water.
Then I cook covered on medium heat for about an hour.
That’s it! It’s simple, delicious, and all in one pot!
