Potatoes and Beans

This was a busy little thing; but fun.

First things first, we peeled and cubed about 1 kg of potatoes covered them with water and half a tbls of salt and turned on the stove. Separately we got another small pot of water going.

While that was out of the way Lucy washed 2 handful of petite green beans and chopped their ends off.

Shortly before the potatoes were starting to boil, we fried up 8 slices of chopped bacon in some olive oil and then added 2 sliced cloves of garlic.

That's when we tossed the green beans into the pot of boiling water for just a few minutes until they were slightly soft.

After the potato water had been boiling for just a few minutes and the spuds were starting to get soft, we drained them and added them to the bacon and garlic to fry them nice and toasty.

As we were getting happy with it, we added a pile of chopped rosemary leaves, and a bit of salt, and pepper.

Finally we tossed in the softened green beans and 1 can of drained pinto beans.

What followed was one scrumptious munchdown. (Live feed from Lily: "I love all kinds of beans. ... Except school beans.")
