Corn & Taters

We picked all of our corn & potatoes yesterday.
Wound up with 13 gallon bags full of corn on the cob. (cut small)
We also got approximately 150lbs. new red potatoes & 60lbs. white potatoes.
I thought I got idaho or brown skinned white potatoes but they are a golden color like a butter potato.
We should have had some more corn for us but we think we left it on the stalk a little too long. --That's ok though. The chickens & pigs will enjoy it.
I boiled up some small potatoes with green beans to go with our steaks for dinner yesterday and they were declicious!
I am so thankful to the Lord for providing us with a good harvest.

Country style green beans & potatoes

fresh green beans-washed & snapped
fresh little potatoes-washed well skins on or off doesn't matter
a couple tablespoons good lard OR a couple pieces of bacon OR a ham slice
salt & pepper
a little butter

Put lard, bacon, or ham (or all 3 if you're really into the meat) lol.
Melt or cook the meat. Then add the beans & taters. Fill up to just cover the veggies with water. Add a little salt & pepper. Stir & bring to a boil. Simmer until potatoes are done. Drain off most of the water & put in a little butter. Stir and serve.

*You can also make this with some extra ham & don't drain the water. It makes a good filling soup in the winter. You can also cook this in the crockpot.
