Green Bean-polooza

This past weekend I was charged with fresh green beans for our dinner of smoked chicken at S&J's cabin.  Little did I know snapping green beans would be a nostalgic part of my day.  As I snapped the beans I was transported to times with momma, going to the gardens, getting a bushel of beans, back home to snap them all and then can them.  It was an all day, sometimes all weekend process but what a grand time we had.  I don't can anymore because I won't use a pressure cooker but I may occasionally will blanch and freeze.  I was definitely a wonderful memory as I sat on my screened porch in the heat and snapped those beans, and they were delicious that night.
