Southern Skillet Green Beans with Ham

As a Southerner, food is about the seasoning.  Seasoned with love and pork is just about all there is to cookin’ a great meal.  Y'all know, everything is better when there is pork in it.  Beans of every sort have a hunk, or pieces, of ham, bacon, salt pork or hog jowl.  This dish is a skillet stir fry of a Southern classic…Green Beans with Ham.  I used my new T-fal skillet, I received as a gift to review from Cooking Planit, to make this comfort dish.

Potatoes and Ham Soup

This brings back memories of my precious Mama cooking newly dug potatoes from the garden.  I would have to wash the dirt off and place them on dry grass to dry, turning them over to ensure even drying.  There is nothing better than fresh potatoes that have simmered on the stove, either with a cream sauce..Potatoes and Cream Sauce, or with a hunk of leftover ham.  Mama always put a lot of pepper in her potatoes and would sometimes but garden peas in with the cream sauce.   I started out not making this to write down and just added a little here and more there.  Adjust the recipe to suit.  Do you have a potato memory?  ~smile~

Green Bean Salad

I baked a ham today.  The boys wanted sweet potatoes and green beans.  Hubby wanted a sandwich and I wanted a salad.  I love how you can use ham in so many ways and there is still plenty left for another day or two plus I'll use the bone for soup or beans.   So looking forward to that!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup

I made this also since we didn't have Chicken Cordon Bleu for my Hubby's Birthday.  A Super Easy Chicken Cordon Bleu meal using the recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Egg Noodles  just adding more cream.   It Was Delicious!  I hope you like it also.

Over Load!!!!!

Tell me what you think about this!  My eldest thinks it Rocks!  <3 and Hugs!
NOTE....We play with our food and this is not a normal, everyday item on our foodie schedule!  <3

I have seen chocolate covered bacon and always wondered about it.  I was cooking bacon and a ham.  I also bought Rolos and pretzels to make candy.  Somehow I forgot to buy nuts to add to them.


My thinking as I was cooking the bacon was...crunchy and salty.  Nuts.  I made a candy like that.  Son liked that.  Then,  I thought texture and salty..ham.  Son liked that also.  Combine the two for an Absolute Over Load!  Pretzels, Chocolate, Caramel, Ham and Bacon!  Yeah, I know, gross!  But, Hey!  Don't knock it until you try it.  Also doing chocolate covered ham slices....Yep!  Heard it hear first!  <3 and Hugs!


Tuesday Morning.......My son asked me if he could take this as a snack to school today.  He Loves It!  <3 and Hugs!

Sweet Beans and Ham



We baked a ham Sunday and I wanted a pot of beans.  I was going to make Northern Beans and Ham but my oldest said he wanted "Sweet Beans".  That is his name for Baked Beans.  :D  So…..Sweet Beans and Ham it is!  A pan of Corn Bread and we will be set! 


Sweet Beans and Ham
1 bag of dried Great Northern Beans…12 oz
3/4 to 1 cup Ketchup
3 teaspoons Honey Mustard
1/2 cup packed Brown Sugar
1 small Onion, diced
1 1/2 cups diced Smoked Ham
1/3 teaspoon Pepper
1/2 Salt

Rinse beans and pick out any bad ones or foreign objects.  Put in pot, cover with water, boil 2 minutes.  Cover, remove from heat and let sit 1-4 hours.
Drain the beans and rinse.  Put in crock pot…add ingredients and water to cover.  Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low –10 hours.
Okay….NOTE HERE:  I boiled the beans for 2 minutes.  Let sit for 4 hours, first day with a girlfriend without my precious babies in umpteen years, then cooked on high for 5 hours in crock pot.  They were NOT done.  I had to cook them at 3 minute intervals for 30 minutes.  Sooooo, next time I will either….cook for an hour and then put in crock pot or, simmer on stove for the afternoon.

Sunday Brown Sugar Ham and Peaches..Memory of Sunday Lunch

Sunday's remind me of lunch as a kid.  Having a huge spread of just about everything on the table after church.  My parents...yes, Daddy helped too when Mama was busy, would get the side dishes ready in the morning.  The main part of the meal would be put in the oven to cook while we went to church..  My sister or I would set the table before we left.  The only thing to do would be to put ice in the glasses for the Drink of Choice of the South...Sweet Tea, so sweet a spoon could stand up in it,  and pop the bread in the oven. 

When you opened the door after coming home from a wonderful morning of worship, the house was filled with the most delicious smells.  More intense than if you were home cooking the same meal.  Your stomach would begin to growl and you didn't know if you just wanted to kick off your shoes or change out of your church clothes first before you began eating.  The fastest way to get to table, was the way I chose.

After filling up with lunch, Daddy would lean back and have to unbutton to top of his pants because he was so full.  A sure sign that Daddy loved his meal.  Often times he wouldn't have room for the luscious dessert Mama had made.

We would go our separate ways after a great time shared as a family on a Beautiful Sunday Morning.  I would go to the pool in the backyard or movies with friends.  Daddy would sit in front of the tv, Mama would talk to friends and family, and my sister would go her way with friends.  Sometimes we would all go for a ride to nowhere and stop and get an ice cream on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Today I am cooking a Brown Sugar Ham and Peaches.  Yes, I am in a Peaches mode it seems.  ~smiles~   My husband bought some really huge, sweet peaches the other day and I need to use them up.  ~grins even bigger~   

Sunday Brown Sugar Ham and Peaches

1 Smoked Ham
1 cup of Brown Sugar
1 can or jar of canned, Peaches,  I used a pint of home canned
3-4 Fresh Peaches

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Trim excess fat from ham and save for seasoning. Pour the juice from peaches over ham, putting peaches in the pan.
Peel, and cut peaches into quarters, halves if on the smaller size.
Put brown sugar over ham and peaches.
Tent with foil.

Cook for 2 to 2 1/2 hours depending on size of ham.  You want to heat it completely through.
Take peaches out of juice as soon as you take it out of the oven.  Let ham rest for 15 minutes or more minutes.
Enjoy!

Getting ready for oven.

Really Huge peaches my husband bought!
