Green beans, potatoes, and ham

I lived with my grandparents, mom, and sister as a teenager. On most nights, we would sit down as a family for dinner. One of the meals, my grandma would prepare is green beans, potatoes, and ham in the crockpot.

I can still see the kitchen and her round crockpot full of the green beans, potatoes, and ham. We would either have it with bread and butter or a simple salad.

Whenever I cook something from my childhood, I try to tell my boys about it. The Imaginative One was five when my grandma died. During the last year of her life, they became so close. This is a way for him to have memories of her.

When I made this, the potatoes were at the bottom of the crock. So when Hubby looked into the crock all he saw was green beans and 1 piece of ham. He was nervous about what we were having. Once he saw the potatoes, he was relieved. He enjoyed the meal.
