I made this dish for dinner on yesterday, it really brought back memories of my childhood. When mama would gather green Beans, onions & Potatoes fresh from the garden, & make this tasty dish for dinner.

All the vegetables were so fresh & very tasty, then when I chatted with my brother A W. he said he had made the same dish on Saturday, & ate left overs on Sunday. So that is how I arrived at this title for the dish.

I also added minced garlic, the beans were frozen, they cooked faster than expected, so I drained the liquid to a smaller pot, and cooked the potatoes in the grn bean liquid.
