I am a SAHM that loves to cook, loves everything about bento box lunches, bake, travel and learning new things. Here you will find recipes, print-ables, guides and tutorials and take you along on my adventurous undertaking of trying to get my little boys to eat healthy yummy meals...and maybe when they become teens they won't go to their friend's house for dinner lol! I invite you into our home...come on in and see what's on our table
We are going to give ourselves a little break since its a Monday =D The BQ ribs are from Costco already made...you just need to cook it up and its oh so yummo!! 25 minutes in the oven and you have some delish BQ ribs! Here is the recipe for the green beans with almonds
Coarse salt, to taste
2 lb. slender green beans, trimmed
1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 Tbs. olive oil
4 shallots, thinly sliced
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Fill a large pot three-fourths full of lightly salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, rinse with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. (The beans can be prepared up to this point 1 day in advance, covered tightly and refrigerated until ready to use.)
In a large fry pan over medium heat, toast the almonds, stirring continuously, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
In the same pan over medium heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the shallots and sauté until translucent and beginning to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and stir in the beans. Sauté, stirring continuously, until heated through and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the parsley and almonds. Transfer to a warmed serving bowl and serve immediately.
