Around the Table week 4

This week was pretty disappointing in the cooking department.  Although we've eaten together every night this week, with the exception of Friday and Saturday nights, I didn't cook very much.  So here it is...  our week in review:

Sunday:  Leftovers from Saturday night
Monday:  More leftovers (we cooked way too much chicken and steak)

Tuesday:  Rotisserie chicken (yep, I'm sick of chicken ), baked potato, spinach salad

Wednesday:  Leftover chicken and whatever else was left in the fridge.

Thursday:  Fried Backstrap, Rice and onion gravy, and Green beans.

Friday: The girls and I were at a party and the boys got take-out.

Saturday:  Zeb and I went on a date.  We ate Popcorn and Nerds for dinner.  I'm not sure what Lee did with the other three, but I'm sure it was a lot healthier than what Zeb and I ate.  


I'm pretty disappointed in myself this week, but no-one went hungry, we spent time around the table,  and we didn't waste much; so it wasn't a colossal failure .  I know we'll have weeks like this, and I need to be okay with that.  

I'll leave you with a great way to cook green beans... a favorite for my family!  I think this is a Paula Dean recipe.

Fancy Green Beans

Cook frozen, long green beans in water in a frying pan.  

Drain most of the water when done.  

Add in 1/2 stick of butter, around 1/4 cup honey, and 1/4 cup teriyaki.  Simmer for about 15 minutes and enjoy!

You can also add in chopped cashews and it's wonderful.  Yumm-O!
