String Beans and Bacon

This is one of our favorite fresh from the garden meals.

Gather your ingredients fresh from the garden.

1 pound of bacon cut into 1 inch pieces
a bowl full of fresh picked string beans
4 or 5 tomatoes cut into about 1 inch squares
add other vegetables fresh from the garden if desired
(peppers, squash, carrots, etc.)

Bring a large sauce pan of water to boil.  Add trimmed and snapped beans and cook until beans are semi-cooked about 5 to 7 minutes.  Meanwhile fry bacon in a cast iron skillet.  When bacon is done do not drain off all the grease (leave at least 2-4 tbs. of grease).  Add semi cooked beans and stir to coat beans.  Let cook another 2 minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes and cook down until tomatoes are tender.
(about 2 more minutes)

sorry, I do not have a picture of the dish,
 it tasted sooooo goooood it disappeared before I could take a picture.

Please be sure to cast your vote in the poll on the right hand column.  Your input will help me decide if I should continue with this blog.  THANKS!
