Green Beans and Good Friends

Let's go pick some dinner.

Tonight's Harvest
Green Beans, Basil and Cherry Tomatoes.

Stanzie asks: "Where is the Bacon?"

Here is how Mom cooks green beans for Dad:

Wash beans, snip the stems and toss the beans into the veggie steamer for 15 minutes.
While they are steaming, cook 3 pieces of turkey bacon with a clove of chopped fresh garlic.
Chop the cooked turkey bacon into 1/2" pieces.
Toss the steamed green beans with the turkey bacon/garlic.
Finish with some sea salt, pepper and fresh chives and basil.

For us dogs, just the steamed green beans mixed with a little turkey bacon!
These beans are extra special, because the seeds were from our friends over the big pond, 

Tomorrow, Mom is making penne pasta with fresh basil pesto and cherry tomatoes.

  6. We love green beans... and I think we will come tomorrow for your pasta :o) Has your mom any idea how we can snip the beans faster? It always tooks 87 years to prepare them when you have to snip them bean by bean :o)

  7. Hi Wyatt and Stanzie!
    I agree, just give me a big old plate of bacon and I'm happy, but I'm on the dreaded diet so I would just get the beans, not that I would complain though becuase a treat is a treat and beans are yummy, your beens look gorgeous, you look very proud with your plate of them, thats amazing that the seeds came from such a long way, so special! love and licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  8. Yummy. We had our first bean harvest here yesterday as well. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. WE picked green beans Yesterday. Our mom puts Ham in hers... and onion and cuts the kernels off a fresh picked ear of Corn and puts those in also...
    WE love YOUR mom's Recipe.

    BUTT we think green beans are BEST eaten RAW... right there in the garden.

  10. What time is dinner tomorrow?
    We thought you were going to eat all those beans!

  12. Oops, wrong copy and paste:{

    We get green beans too, but they come out of a can and no bacon:( We bet your green beans taste way better. Phantom says to save some pasta for him.

  13. You guys are so well-mannered not to plunge in your faces and snarf up the whole bowl of beans. But I suppose if you're expecting them to be cooked with bacon, it's worth the wait.

  14. Crikey that poetry stuff's not so hard. You did a great job and it rhymed. Isn't that what poetry is s'posed to do??

  15. Love your green bean recipe...everything goes better with bacon!!!
