Fresh Green Beans with Bacon

While on my recent trip to Utah and Idaho, Malad was a anticipated stop for a visit.  Grandma and Grandpa Bowen.  The best.  We ate fresh from the garden one night for supper.  100% of the meal was from the garden.  Including the beef...huh!  Yep they buy cows and raise them up to butcher.  Sooo good.
We had Creamed Potatoes with peas, Roast beef, Corn on the cob, Tomatoes and cucumber onion salad, and the best green beans ever!!  The girls enjoye this part of our trip especially because they got to feed the new cows grandpa has in his pasture.  Corn husks from shucking the corn.

grandpa only has three fingers on one of his hands due to a fanning accident when he was young.  We all have had our share of holding is sweet little hand with three fingers, he has become quite famous around town for it.  All the kids think its cool.  So I got this shot of Gpa and Grey holding hands.  That is 4 generations.  Sweet.  I love this picture.  It reminds me of when I grew up holding his hand.

Grandpa has the bigget garden.  So much produce!  He could probably feed his whole street.

So to get on with the awesome recipe!!!

Brown chopped up bacon in a pot. 

While the bacon is cooking, clean and snap the green beans.

WHen the bacon is done, put it on a paper towel.  Drain some of the bacon grease from the pot.

place the beans in the pot with the left over bacon grease and cover with water.  Boil til tender.

Drain, then add a little butter, the bacon bits and salt and pepper to tast.  YUMMY!!

This screams summer to me.  Especially Malad IDAHO
