Buttery Herbed Green Beans

Hello and happy Sunday to you all! I know, Sunday does mark the end of the weekend, and back to school/work tomorrow, and for me, it also means laundry day. Ugh, how I hate laundry! But Sundays don’t have to be gloomy! One of my favorite things about Sunday is our traditional Sunday dinner. It doesn’t really matter what day you do this on, but for me, it’s important to do this at least once a week. Since The Hubster started working nights, it’s become even more important. During the week he is not around to sit around the table with us at dinner time, but he definitely is on Sundays!

Sunday dinner around my house is basically dinner that consists of more than just a quick thrown together casserole. It’s not always fancy schmancy, in fact it rarely is, but usually it’s a meat & potatoes kinda thing. We have had casseroles and even tacos with a taco bar for everyone to fix their own on Sunday dinner. The major point is to bring everyone together. In the future, our Sunday dinner tradition will hopefully expand as our kids get older, move out, and start families of their own.  That’s my dream anyway. For this Sunday, I have prepared crisp baked pork chops served with mashed potatoes and gravy, and these to die for green beans! Buttery Herbed Green Beans. YUM! I think these work well with just about any main dish, whether it be meatloaf, chicken, pork, or steak. I think it would also accompany fish quite well.

Buttery Herbed Green Beans are a quick and simple side dish using fresh green beans. I love using fresh green beans. In my opinion, fresh has the BEST flavor! To make this is simple. All you do is cook the green beans in some chicken broth. Drain them, and return them back to the pot. Pour melted butter over them, add your garlic and seasonings, and toss to coat. That’s it! You’re done! These are ready that quickly!

Go ahead and give these Buttery Herbed Green Beans a try, and let me know what you think. I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we did!
