Monday Mania ~ Super Simple, Super Delicious Green Bean Recipe

We certainly enjoy our Monday night dinner group.
While our host prepared Salmon on the grill, the rest of us brought the side dishes.
Our contribution...our favorite green bean dish.


Start by steaming green beans,
(fresh, if available...frozen if they are no longer in season where you live)
Heat small amount of olive oil and a pat of butter  in a large pan.
Saute garlic...I usually use 3 or 4 cloves
(but you can use more if you wish...last night, hubby used 7)
Add bacon that has been cooked and cut into bite size pieces.
Gently stir in green beans.
Sprinkle with sliced almonds.

We also enjoyed some fabulous wild rice
and the creamiest cheesy mashed potatoes.

And of course,
Monday Night Football!

Now...
Who's ready to tackle the rest of the week?!

Take care,
~Natalie
