Baked Beans and Potato Salad

I fought the elements to deliver food to the shelter this morning so they would have it in time for lunch.  It is an awful day today.  First we had horrible ice.  The kind you literally can not move on.  Then it warmed up a bit and the skies opened and it has been a steady downpour. I waded through deep icy puddles to get the food to the shelter.

I hit a bump and baked beans spilled all over the back of my car.

These beans are the best.  When I came back to the kitchen after being in the front office, the cook told me three guys came into the kitchen saying that they 'smelled Joyce'.  Apparently I smell like baked beans.  If you want to try this recipe, you can find it here:

I also made them about 25 pounds of potato and green bean salad.

Here is the recipe:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2012/05/potato-and-green-bean-salad.html

I like to used a variety of beans in this recipe.  I delivered this stuff along with the collards I showed you yesterday and large trays of cornbread to soak up the 'pot likkor'.

This is a good way to get fresh vegetables into people! I used about 4 pounds of green beans.

Be careful out there today if you are getting this ice storm.  There were wrecks all over the place.
