I don't know about you but at some point during the summer I have to turn to some kind of comfort food. That is what I did tonight. We just picked a whole bunch of green beans from our garden and since they were fresh they had to be cooked.
I cooked the green beans in a crock pot. Wash beans, cut ends off and cut in half if needed. Add to a crock pot and add water to just cover them. Add a few pieces of bacon or fatback to the crock pot. Turn crock pot on low and cook for about 8 hours. Test the green beans from time to time, you want them soft. At this point add a little bit of salt if needed. Use a slotted spoon to serve with.
Boneless Chicken Breasts
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons paprika
Salt and Pepper
Take flour, paprika, salt and pepper and add to a small dish and mix. In another dish add the eggs and beat. Take a chicken breast and lay it between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Use a flat edge of a meat tenderizer to flatten the breasts to about 1/2 inch. Dredge breasts in egg and then into flour mixture. Add to a large baking dish that has been oiled. Place chicken into a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for about 30 minutes.
To add to this meal I found a partial bag of noodles. I cooked them and added a little butter.
