Green beans, brown sugar and bacon

The moment we’ve all been waiting for! Okay, so maybe not everyone, but it was a big day for me and the wife. Yesterday was the first green bean harvest! To celebrate, I cooked up a batch of old fashion green beans. To be honest, after cooking in brown sugar and bacon it could have been Catawba pods and still tasted pretty good.

As if the green beans were not enough vegetable to go with the grilled pork chops, I also grilled a yellow squash and a zucchini.

And if that wasn’t enough, I also sliced up the first cucumber of the year. After some with just salt and some with humus, they were gone before I could get a picture.

  1. We got a few beans this week. Hopefully next week we will get enough to make it worth the time to cook. I’ll have to try the brown sugar/bacon method.
