Holy green bean heaven!
I was raised on this yummy veggie -- meaning -- it was just about the only vegetable my mom could feed me without me putting up a fight. Because of that, it's generally my go to fav when I'm wanting to add something a bit more healthy to my meal. I have recently been expanding my veggie vocabulary and I'll be documenting those adventures here but green beans will always hold a special place in the inner child in me.
On to the delicious specs: GREEN BEANS!
