Simple Side Dish: Melodie’s Green Beans

My friend Shannon emailed me earlier this week with this picture of her sister-in-law’s best ever green bean recipe, and told me I absolutely had to try it! I make a similar recipe on low heat on the stove top that cookes throughout the day with just some bouillion cubes, but will definitely try adding a little onion and olive oil the next time we make it.
If you’d like to liven up a plain old side dish in your home, this would be a great recipe to try out, and if you get a chance to make them before I do, let me know what you think! (Don’t worry Shannon, they’re on our menu plan for Monday!) 🙂
