|I spy a little boy’s hand, swiping some bacon.|
2. Chop up some onions. I ♥ my Cutco knives. I only have a few of them, but they were an excellent investment. I call them an investment, because they really did cost as much as a couple weeks worth of groceries. I have Housewife Probs I suppose, I compare everything to how many groceries I could get for the same price. You all do that too, yeah?
3. Add the ONIONS to the BUTTER.
4. Stir them around like you know what you’re doing.
5. Cut off the ends of the green beans and toss them aside. Then cut the beans into manageable bite sized chunks; Nobody is going to use their manners and a knife to cut them at the table, and you don’t have the energy to fight that battle today. Just keep chopping.
6. Rinse the beans now, or you could’ve done this earlier if you were on the ball and remembered they weren’t washed when they got put in the fridge.
7. Add the beans and some diced up bacon to the skillet. Put the lid on.
9. Come back a few minutes later, give this a stir, and marvel at this sight:
10. Put one serving on your nicest plate and take a picture of it. It’s okay, you can serve the rest on your regular dishes.
Dear Tired Momma out there,
I know you’re thinking your kids would NEVER eat this. But my completely irrational 2 year old ate THREE plates of this. I’m sure she would’ve had more, but SOMEONE pulled the ice cream out of the freezer and she decided she was ready for dessert RIGHT THEN (cue the temper-tantrum). My 8 & 12 year olds also devoured this meal.
Give it a try. And if it fails, go for the ice cream.
