Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have something amazing planned for the weekend! It’s going to be chilly and probably rainy here in Pittsburgh. I think it’s about time to pull all the veggies that are left in the garden into the house soon. Snow is actually in the forecast for us in the next week. The time for warming food is pretty much here, but I wanted to share one more “summer-ish” recipe with you before the snow flies. These were about the last green bean harvest from Dad’s garden for the year. Truly, fall is upon us. 🙂
I can’t honestly think of any vegetable that’s not amazing roasted in garlic, and these green beans are no exception. Roasting makes the beans kind of crunchy – I bet you could call them bean fries and the kids would gobble them up (can you tell I’m starting to think about kid foods already?!). Remember those days of soggy, tasteless, canned vegetables? This will change your mind about green beans forever. Promise. Feel free to experiment with spices, or more or less garlic to suit your taste. We loved these garlicky beans, and I hope you will, too!
