by admin in


Summer food, how I love thee. There is something so pleasing about looking at the juicy stone fruits and the tasty green beans knowing that your palate will be pleased. I saw this recipe in the August 2011 Better Homes and Gardens issue and new I needed to try it. My mom gave me a bag of homegrown green beans. Avery and I bought every pit fruit at Whole Foods on friday. When it's this hot, one can really only eat fruit and vegetables. We cleaned licked the bowl. I highly recommend trying this dish before the summer is over. Recipe reprint below.
