We’ve established the fact that I am cheap, correct? I base many of our dinners off of what is on sale in the produce section or meat counter. Why waste money? So, having said that, Fareway had fresh green beans on sale for 78 cents a pound. I snatched them up and picked up some ham. Fresh green beans are delicious and when you don’t have to weed the little suckers they are that much more so. I still have nightmares about the mosquitos that used to swarm the green bean plants of my youth.
Cooking, unlike baking, is not a science but rather an art. Who needs a recipe when you have decent ingredients? So, this isn’t really a recipe so much as a “what I did.” Feel free to mess with this to your heart’s content. Like I said, when you have good ingredients, it is hard to mess it up.
Ham & Green Beans
- 1 pound green beans, snapped (you could use frozen I’m sure)
- 4-5 potatoes, chopped
- 1/2 pound ham, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 can chicken broth
Prepare crock pot (you know my love for crock pot liners). Put all ingredients into crock pot, cover with chicken broth and water (I just filled the broth can with water). Cook on Low for 6-8 hours.
