Monday Made It, Eating, Drinking, and Linking--Oh My!, NEW Graphics, & a FREEBIE!


The first Made It is a different kind of MADE IT...

Courtney has reported that she MADE IT all the way to Hershey, Pennsylvania--a 16 hour drive WITHOUT throwing one of her kids on the highway!! :0)

Now, on to a perfect and SIMPLE recipe for summer...

Garlic Parmesan Green Beans

1 lb fresh green beans (snipped)
2 T butter
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
fresh grated Parmesan cheese (amount desired)
salt & pepper to taste

  1. Steam green beans until tender (or desired tenderness).
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add minced garlic and cook 2-3 minutes.
  4. Place steamed beans in skillet and toss to coat evenly.
  5. Continue to saute over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Turn heat to low, add fresh grated Parmesan and toss until melted.
Enjoy! (I add more fresh grated Parmesan at the table!)
