Green Beans Almondine!

I love fresh green beans. They are versatile, and pretty much a go-with-the-flow kinda vegetable. They can be used so many different ways, they are a chameleon among fellow veggies! I thought they would be the perfect veggie to partner with our homemade Meatloaf, and they were! Here's the recipe:

1/2 pound Fresh Green Beans
1/4 cup Slivered Almonds
3 tablespoons Butter
 Wash your green beans thoroughly.
Trim the ends of each of the beans.
Place the beans in a pot and bring to a boil. 
Boil until tender, about 13-15 minutes.
Just taste one to check tenderness.
When beans are done, drain in a colander.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and add your almonds.
Add your green beans, and cook in the pan until they are hot, 
and the almonds start to turn light brown.
Super simple, & oh so good for us.
Enjoy your green bean almondine!

I am excited that it is quickly becoming fresh vegetable season! 
Look for lots of great recipes coming up throughout the next few months.

Tomorrow we will be making our dessert for our meatloaf meal~Chocolate Pots De Creme!
Thanks for joining me today~Hope to see you tomorrow!!
