Green Beans and New Potatoes

Greem Beans and New Potatoes

The new potatoes in our garden are ready.  We eat our new potatoes cooked several different ways.  We slice them thin and fry to make home fries.  We boil them, thicken with flour, pour into a casserole dish and cover with shredded sharp cheddar cheese for Cheesy New Potatoes.  We also melt butter in a dish, add new potatoes that have been quartered, sprinkle with salt and pepper, cover, and bake.  My mother has cooked Green Beans and New Potatoes for as long as I can remember.  She would always add ham when she cooked hers.  She would bake cornbread, too.
