Now that the holidays are over we can push a little bit of the sweets aside. I don't know about you but I was on a sugar high practically the whole month of December!! Tis the season with all those yummy cookies and candies I guess. For the next couple of posts I think I will lay of the sweets to even things out a bit.
Today I am featuring one of my favorite greeny beanie dishes. Sweet & Sour Green Beans. This recipe is so simple to throw together and it utilizes ingredients you usually have on hand so that's always a plus.
The first time I had this dish was years and years ago when my mother in law served at our Thanksgiving Dinner. I was immediately hooked, the sweet and sour flavor was such a twist to plain old green beans.My husband loved them so I knew this recipe was a keeper.
I didn't have to look far this Christmas season when I was looking for a vegetable side dish to go with our Christmas Dinner. I hope you give this recipe a try I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the sweet and sour taste.
