Mmm… green beans with potatoes and ham

DSC_4485 [1600x1200]Nothing special about these, but I do want to mention the cornbread.  I used buttermilk in this recipe, and lard instead of butter or oil.  Best cornbread evah!  There are three green onions chopped up in the batter and I can recommend those.  No cheese or jalapenos this time.  The recipe from the back of the Quaker brand corn meal box (with my changes):

1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
3/4 c Quaker Corn Meal
1/4 c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 c skim milk buttermilk
1/4 c vegetable oil lard
2 egg whites or 1 whole egg [I use the whole egg]
