After igniting the spicy green beans on the grill last week, I decided to make them in the oven Monday night, and they came out much better! I had a request for the recipe, it's not exact measurements, but here it is:
1.Fresh green beans, enough to fill a cookie sheet, in one layer.
2.Wash and trim the ends off the beans.
3.Toss in a mixture of olive oil, three cloves of garlic (chopped), ground pepper, a bit of kosher salt, and a tablespoon of Huy Fong garlic chili sauce.
4.Roast in the oven at 350 degrees, about 20 minutes, stir halfway through cooking time.
Amanda at Run to the Finish has a 30 day challenge going on at her blog, you have to commit to doing 3 things for the next 30 days. I've been feeling like I'm in a food rut, so this is what I decided to do:
1. keep a food journal. I've never done this, but being home all day, I pick at whatever is in the fridge, or on leftovers. I'm always starving by 4:30 so I need to do something about it.
2. stop munching on whatever is leftover on the kid's plates.
3. cut back on the sugar. I've actually been good about this already, I threw out a ton of Easter candy that none of us need to be eating.
