I resisted the urge to buy it but had a surprise later when my friend, who had seen me admiring it, gave it to me!! She had snuck it (well, sneaked it if we're going to be all technical here) to the cash register while I was browsing! She is one of the most generous people I know, not just with little gifts but also with time and help and kind gestures. I think of her when I snuggle in my green chair and browse this cookbook for recipes ideas.
The other night I made a Shoepeg & Green Bean Casserole from this cookbook and it was oh-so-delicious! Now, if you just read my last post about party food and green bean bundles it may seem like I am on a mission to make fattening green bean dishes. I promise it's just a coincidence!! But sometimes canned green beans need a little fattening up, you know what I'm saying? Oh good, I just knew you would. ;)
Now, obviously this recipe is on the (ahem) "rich" side. I had picked up a nice, healthy rotisserie chicken at Sam's for $4.99 (those are the bomb) so I made a fresh batch of cranberry/orange/apple relish and steamed some broccoli to serve alongside this creamery, buttery batch of green bean and corn goodness.
It was a tasty meal! Happy cooking!
