A mess of beans!

Green Beans are one of my favorite vegetables!
I especially like them the way my Grandma made them.
Saute 1/2 lb. bacon with 1/2 of a large sweet onion, chopped.
While the bacon and onion are cooking,
I rinse the beans and snip tops and tails off
and toss into the pan of bacon.
I don't measure, just cook what you think you will eat.
(Remember, they will shrink a bit when cooking.)
When your pan is almost full, add a little water and some
minced garlic. Put on the lid and let simmer at least 15 minutes.
Season with a little salt and pepper and serve!
I can make a meal out of just this!
