When I was a kids I loved green beans. Pretty much thought they were the best veggie ever created, second only to corn on the cob smothered in butter. Until Mama cooked up some green beans fresh out of the garden. They weren’t salty or very soft and they were still kind of fuzzy. Ever since I have eaten very few green beans that didn’t come from a can. In my effort to be a little more open minded about raw green beans, I decided to roast some up with carrots and mushrooms. They were amazing! I’m pretty sure I’ll never look at a raw green bean with anything other than pure adoration from now on.
I'm a stay at home mom to 5 amazing kids and wife to my Prince Charming. I grew up on a farm outside of a small town in southern Utah and am the middle of 5 kids. I graduated from high school early determined to be done with school forever, only to attend college a few years later. I met my husband at school and am in the middle of my happily ever after. I love spending time with my family doing just about anything. I love to be in the kitchen and almost always have at least one little helper (aka taste tester). I'm blessed with an imperfect, but perfect for me, life. Visit the Royal Cook |
