Garlicky Green Beans Almondine

I got some green beans at the farmer’s market and planned to saute them with some olive oil, butter and garlic when I remembered I also had some slivered almonds in the pantry.

Green beans almondine is a classic dish and I decided to give it a try but didn’t want to leave out the garlic. We’re big garlic lovers so I figured it would go over well… and it did! This side dish was created on the fly and was so good that I’ll definitely be making it again!

We served it along with some broiled scrod (which is good and great). I didn’t take any pictures of the process but it was very simple.

I sauteed/steamed the green beans in some olive oil and a little butter. I toasted the almond slices and then added them to the green beans along with some garlic, butter and salt and pepper. That’s about all it took to create this tasty side dish!

Blue Cheese Cole Slaw

Here’s a quick post on a quick and easy side dish that is sure to please. I’ve been making my creamy slaw using the same recipe for a while now and decided to kick it up a notch and add some blue cheese to it.

First, I shredded some cabbage and a yellow onion in the food processor. You can also buy a pre cut bag of slaw mix or add some red cabbage or carrots for some more color if you’d like.

The next step is to make the dressing. Greg got this blue cheese down the strip.

Then just mix ’em togegther and allow to sit in the fridge for at least an hour before serving. We served it with some pulled pork and it was awesome!
