Green Beans & Bacon

bacon-greenbeans4I like green beans but my husband does not. So am always trying to come up with something new that makes him like them too.

This is a combination of things I like so I decided to see how it would work.

Today was an R & D (research and development) day. This was a big success. I liked them and Joe loved them. He said never fix me green beans other than this way.

Apparently he forgot how much he loved the green beans Suzie cooked for Christmas dinner before last :)
