I didn't want to use the word "bean" in the title of my post for today. Why? Well, the last name of the previous owners of this house was "Bean"..and there are so many weird and frustrating things that we've had to fix that they did wrong that I just hate to even mention the name. I'm pretty sure they don't read my blog...anyway, I couldn't call the post "Life of a Green Whatchamacallit"...so here is how my veggie has evolved..
First you must find the little stinkers. Addie had to look under all the leaves and we found a ton hiding there. It wasn't an activity that held held her attention for long. She was more interested in finding little froggies instead.
Snap time! Snapping beans (man, there's that word again) must be as old as time. When I'm snapping them I always have this vision of me sitting on a porch swing with the bowl of beans and me just snapping away. I've never, ever done something like that but I've seen it on the Waltons TV show. I'm a bit obsessed with that show for some reason. I mean it's over 30yrs old..and when I saw a recent pic of all the actors from it I was a bit depressed because they look so old..but then I don't look anything like I did back in 1974. Maybe that's what's really depressing me.
Ouch! Into some boiling water for 3min...Have you ever been in "hot water"?..I have and I'm here to tell you it sure wasn't only 3min. Wait, this isn't a post about the Life Of A Greek Goddess..I mean me.
Splash! Into the ice water to stop the cooking process...brrrrrrr..however, on these hot, muggy days I wouldn't mind a quick dip in some ice water..
Into the freezer bag..air sucked out...into the freezer...I'll see 'ya this winter you green... "whatchamacallits"
