If you have ever been to Church Anniversary or Women's Day,somebody ALWAYS brings a huge side dish of southern style green beans. Sometimes, the sistah doesn't want to cut and pluck the stems off the fresh ones cause that can be a tedious job. So they boil some ham hocks, smoked turkey or even worst, some lard and then throw frozen or can beans into this tasty but dangerous brew. On the down low, they fool us dause we think the beans were fresh.. Delicious. A church sista can make can or frozen beans taste like she just plucked the green beans out of her garden and they are finger licken good. If you use the can, get the salt free. Canned green beans are ladened down with salt and big girl, your pretty legs will not be able to abide those swollen ankles. The frozen green beans have no salt but they will take a lot more time to cook.

If I were you, I'd use the frozen diced potatoes and save myself some time. You can also keep the left overs in the freezer and use them for breakfast when you make those great hashbrowns and onions.

The frozen beans will take some time to cook so let them do so, and throw in your hashbrowns toward the end. Pour offmost of the water, throw some bacon bits on top for the pork lovers, and carry that bad boy to church. Don't forget to spay some Pam on top, to make the meal look greasy. It's a psychological thing with us. We're not happy without some semblance of the pig.

Personal Notes:
I just love me some green beans. What a de-luscious food. High in vitamin c, potassium and extremely low in calories, its a great meal for the sista of size. Yet, I have packed away more salt pork and fatback pounds in church off of a nutritionally destroyed pot of greens that it is ridiculous. With this meal, if I ate half of the pot(106 cal), I'd be full yet I can still stay in control of my LDL's! I think I'll eat half the pot! lol
