Green Beans Almondine … Mmmm Quick, Easy, Delicious!

Can you believe I am sharing another recipe today? I am going to admit that this Green Beans Almondine dish is just too hard to pass up and not share!

Being an empty nester with a husband who works a very busy schedule paired with my odd schedule means that I don’t do much cooking. That has not always been the story though. I am very comfortable in the kitchen and have a few dishes that are termed my “signature dishes”. When it comes to vegetables, this is one of them! The men in our family {my bffhubby and son in law} aren’t the fondest of vegetables but they both absolutely love these:

I made these as a side dish with our Easter dinner a few weeks ago. Shortly before dinner I said, “Hold on folks! This dish needs to be shared with my fabulous readers at inkhappi.” I then proceeded to take a couple of photos and that brings us to todays post. On a side note, the life of a blogger is sometimes filled with spontaneous photo opportunities. My family has had to learn patience at times like these. In spite of it all I got a couple of photos to share. I am going to take you through the steps of making this very easy and delicious dish!
