The longs beans we planted in the garden is now at its peak and we have been harvesting quite a handful daily. The photo below is what we picked last Sunday morning along with the peppers which I used in the chicken stew that accompanied this side dish.

My daughter whose plate that is in the first photo above, ate her dinner without meat, just this sauteed beans over rice with some of the gravy and potatoes from the stew. My plate, with a little bit of everything, is below.
